Hi Guma96,

Thanks for the report. This is unfortunately a regression that has made it into the 1.7.13 release. You have a couple of options available to resolve it:

1. Update to the latest 1.7.14 beta release, which should resolve the issue:

2. Or add the command "tls-exit false" (without quotes) to the advanced commands area for your connection:
