Hi Flo,
I tried a few times from scratch and could not get it to work. The certtool output is different along with the defaults.

Hi,

What's wrong with this guide https://www.rsyslog.com/using-tls-with-relp/ ?

The commands used in it still apply nowadays.

Regards,
Flo

Hi,

One and off for a few months I've been trying toget TLS working with RELP. I've set up so many certificates for client and servers, and never managed to them to talk. Frankly, with all the hundreds of options in openssl/certtool and that the default values and order of questions that change depending on the version and O/S used, it's bound to god wrong. For example: this guide from 2013 doesn't work https://www.rsyslog.com/using-tls-with-relp

I know that lots of people setting TLS up in rsyslog will be creating certificates daily, and they know OpenSSL pretty well , but I do not: I create a certificate once every six months, if this.

Are there any recent guides to setting this up?  Particularly for the part for creating CA/server/client certificates.

The actual omrelp/imrelp part is quite straight forward.

Best wishes,
Sophie
