SQL Express Connection

Trying to set up a database connection to my local SQL Express instance. I’m currently getting this error:

java.sql.SQLException: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (The driver could not establish a
secure connection to SQL Server by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption. Error: "No
appropriate protocol (protocol is disabled or cipher suites are inappropriate)".

I’m not trying to use SSL and my instance is not set up to use SSL.
It’s a default SQL Express instance and I’ve followed the instructions from IU.
