Title:Could not complete SSL handshake.
FAQ ID:F0357

Description:The message nrpe[19739]: Error: Could not complete SSL handshake. 5 appears in Linux NRPE servers syslog.  

Solution:This message, that usually appears in Linux NRPE servers syslog is sometimes not due to NRPE communication between NRPE client and server, but to the monitoring of the port 5666 thru check_tcp. In this case the message is completely inocuous and does not imply malfunctioning. Therefore, if you are seeing that message and everything seems to be working correctly, disable port 5666 monitoring and check if the message shows.
