NRPEv2 on 2.1



  • I've upgraded one server from 2.0.2 to 2.1 (2013/06/06) and nrpe is not working now.

    I get a "Could not read request from client" SSL error.

    2.0.2 and 2.1 packages appears as nrpe-2.12_3 but

    on 2.0.2 we get 2.12 with ssl support.

    But in 2.1 version we get 2.13 without ssl support.

    Looks like the build flags got flip-flopped and SSL was off instead of on. The 2.1 package is rebuilding now. If you reinstall it later tonight or tomorrow, it should be OK.



  • Fixed!

    Thank you.



  • Thanks Jimp… I didn't bother troubleshooting the why, just created a new command that did the check without SSL as it's on a closed network anyways. But thanks for fixing it.... now I guess I have to update. Is it still recommended to remove the package before installing the updated pfsense?

    Thanks again,

    Mark



  • I had to deinstall it to avoid pfsense to take old package from his package cache.

    For a binary change, it's typically best to uninstall and reinstall to ensure you have the most current package installed.
