Ok, this is because of TLS1.0 disablement in new versions but not in vCenter 5.5
As workaround you can enable TLS1.0 in converter-server.xml, converter-worker.xml and converter-agent.xml by changing tag <sslOptions> from 123422720 to 56313856 and then restart services.
I tried but the error remain :-(

I'm forgot - put the same option in converter-client.xml placed in installation folder.
If still not working the best way is to upgrade 5.5 to latest available.
Thanks you very much!
Cool it worked for me
I could not find converter-client xml file in Installer folder
Find at %ProgramFiles(x86)%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-client.xml
also there are 3 files in here
C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
I changed dose as well but still have this same problem. Did anyone find a proper solution?

This worked for me.
Go to C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone
Open to edit the converter-worker.xml
Find the <useSsl>true</useSsl> and change the value to <useSsl>false</useSsl>
Restart the Restart the VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Worker service on the machine
This solution is for ESX 5.5 or older version that need TLS 1.0

Also, change in the following file
%ProgramFiles(x86)%\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-client.xml
I had this same issue when attempting to migrate a virtual machine from an ESXi 5.0.0 host to a new ESXi 6.5.0 host. I was using the VMWare Converter standalone utility version 6.2.0. I ended up downgrading to VMWare Converter version 6.1.1 which worked just fine.

OK, just to consolidate info in one place, as no one specified ALL the correct info in all the posts I could find:
This is how it worked for me - I was moving machines from ESX 5.1.0 build 799733 to ESX 6.5.0 Update 1 build 5969303
- Install VMWare converter v6.2.0 build 8466193
- Change all references of "123422720" to "56313856" in the following files:
- C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-agent.xml
- C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-server.xml
- C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-worker.xml
- C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware vCenter Converter Standalone\converter-client.xml
- Restart all VMWare vCenter Converter services.
This tip worked fine on vCenter 5.5. with with ESXi 5.5 and Converter 6.2. /Thanks all.
It worked for me
