Troubleshooting The Error

The likely cause is that you are missing the ssl libraries on the remote host. This is an easy fix, as all you need to do is install openssl from the host's distribution repositories. For example, in CentOS/RHEL, log onto your remote host and execute the following command:

yum install -y openssl

 

You can verify that it installed correctly with:

which openssl

 

The output should be similar to:

/usr/bin/openssl

 

For instructions on installing the openssl libraries on other Operating Systems please refer to the following KB article:
