Rsyslog + Openssl generated certificates

Hi everyone !

I have a problem with rsyslog :

I am trying to setup a centralized log server, with cyphered communications. The point is I have a CA and many certificates managed by openSSL, and rsyslog does only come with gnuTLS driver.

Is this because of this I can't get it working ? I thought certificates were some kind of compatible ?

Here is a snippet of what is happening on my server. I have exactly the same error on my client

2010-12-31T10:03:47.671470+01:00 logger rsyslogd: not permitted to
talk to peer, certificate invalid: signer is not a CA
2010-12-31T10:03:47.672159+01:00 logger rsyslogd: invalid cert info:
peer provided 1 certificate(s). Certificate 1 info: certificate valid
from Tue Dec 14 15:54:03 2010 to Thu Jan 13 15:54:03 2011;
Certificate public key: RSA;N:C=ID,ST=COUNTRY,L=CITY,O=Organization,OU=Unit,
CN=client.fqdn,; Issuer CN:ID,ST=COUNTRY,
Thanks for any hints !
