IDS/9000 ssl-connect problem

I set up Praesiduim 9000 Intrusion detection on
one client and on one administration server and
distibuted ssl keys according to setup instructions.

starting the IDS Gui on the administation machine
results in error 'no agent available'

On the admin machine the logfile /var/opt/ids/sclA/logfile.txt contain the entry :
0:SessionCache::openSession:ssl connect:-6980

On the client machine the logfile /var/opt/ids/sclM/logfile.txt contain the entry :
0:Entering verifyRemoteHost: Success
Mon May 28 10:08:08 2001
0:idsagent: connection from unknown remote host: General error
Mon May 28 10:08:08 2001
0:idsagent: connection from unknown host/port

Any ideas why ssl communication can't be initialized ???

Re: IDS/9000 ssl-connect problem

It isn't something really obvious like you're using the IP Addresses, but the machines don't know one another's hostnames is it?

I appologise if this is a stupid suggestion, but SSL certificates only work on fixed-IP adresses.
