Description
Current openssl does not support anymore the encryption method used by the NNTP server.

This is the error generated by Thunderbird when trying to connect to the forums (and the the connection fails):

Timestamp: 27/10/16 19:05:15
Error: An error occurred during a connection to forums.embarcadero.com:563.

SSL received a weak ephemeral Diffie-Hellman key in Server Key Exchange handshake message.

Error code: <a id="errorCode" title="SSL_ERROR_WEAK_SERVER_EPHEMERAL_DH_KEY">SSL_ERROR_WEAK_SERVER_EPHEMERAL_DH_KEY</a>
Steps to Reproduce:
Follow the guidelines shown in:

http://edn.embarcadero.com/article/38435

for Thunderbird, but also select SSL.
Workarounds
None, non-SSL connection is not available so this blocks access to the forums.
