config nrpe w/o ssl

Postby wcattell » Tue Mar 02, 2010 9:00 am

I've pulled down nrpe-2.12 and i'm trying to config it to not use ssl (don't ask, long story). :roll:

I've been trying ./configure --without-ssl as listed on a Solaris/Nagios site. It's a no-go here.

Any hints or tips on the correct syntax? Looking through ./configure --help showed the --without-PACKAGE.

The server OS is Centos 4.2, plug-ins 1.4.14 and nrpe-2.12.

TIA,

Bill

At times I've also longed to do NRPE without it's burdensome authentication. However the route you've chosen is quite uniq I'm afraid. I believe that NRPE does not use SSL or TLS, it only uses a handful of cryptography functions from the library to make it's own transactions secure.

As a solution you may instead choose to make RPCs using ssh.
