  • SSL probelm during nagios nrpe installation

    hello all,

    i trying to monitor servers using the openware tool-Nagios. i installed Nagios in a machine and am able to monitor the local host. now am trying to do remote monitoring. for this i chose to use NRPE. and i installed the same in the client machine.

    i installed the Nagios-plugins and NRPe daemon in the client.

    but when i check for the following in the client machine,

    /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H localhost

    i get the error as COULD NOT COMPLETE SSL HANDSHAKE.

    1. i have used the same versions of plugins in both systems.
    2. Port islistening

    viceversa i am not getting the error when i try from the nagios machine

    # /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H
    NRPE v2.8.1

    especially i would like to know
    1. how to check ssl compatibility?
    2. how to check tcp wrapper?

    i tried using ldd command, but in vain. please guide me in the same

    any help would be greatly appreciated
    thanks a lot in advance

    I'm not sure if the documentation is of any help.
    Just for testing NRPE you can disable ssl using the option -n.
    Maybe you can get your results with another plugin?
