[Nagios-users] NRPE: Could not complete SSL handshake

Hey Andy,

Have you tried running your NRPE checkcommands manually?
${NRPE_DIR}/check_nrpe -H ${host} -c ${command} -a 
${arguments_if_you_have_any}
What does this return?

Usually when you get an error like this, it means that you have not 
specified the ipaddress of the Nagios server (doing the nrpe 
checkcommands) in the nrpe.cfg on the machine(s) being checked.
So make sure you have something like this:
    allowed_hosts=127.0.0.1,${nagios_ip}

Hope this helps,

Jeffrey
