SSL Problem (Windows server)

When use ssl is set to true or not configured in the nsclient.ini on the windows server you may run into the following problem:

Code Block
Seems we cant agree on SSL: no shared cipher
Please review the insecure options as well as ssl options in settings.

The check_nrpe command won't work and you get a socket timeout error.

There are two ways to fix this Problem:

  1. You can add the following line in the nsclient.ini : allowed ciphers = ADH and restart the NSClient service
  2. You can generate the SSL options via command line:
Code Block
cd C:\Program Files\NSClient++

nscp nrpe -- install --insecure --allowed-hosts
Enabling NRPE via SSL from: on port 5666
WARNING: NRPE is currently insecure.
Arguments are NOT allowed.

nscp service --restart
