    Exclamation help SSL error instructions on non-SSL non-SSL connections

    We're trying to add a new Forwarder (6.6.1) to our indexer (non-SSL connection), we're able to connect to the forwarder just fine and everything seems correct but we're not seeing the forwarder on the deployment server.

    In Splunkd.log we see the following error for the forwarder:
    WARN HttpListener - Socket error from x.x.x.x while idling: error:1408A0C1:SSL routines:ssl3_get_client_hello:no shared cipher
    What can be the cause of this error?

    It looks to me like you're trying to connect to http://x.x.x.x/ and Splunk is expecting https://x.x.x.x/. Many premium Splunk apps will enable SSL by default (you should do it anyway!), but it can be surprising if you miss the warning. Try connecting on https and see if you're able to get to Splunk.
