Hi Jos,

i tried your plugin with new enhacements, but it's not working for me :/

I'm trying to retrive an URL that need client certificate and i do the

/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_http -4 -i ./client.pem -k
./client.key -w 10 -c 20 -H 195.***.***.*** -u
https://www.onedoiman.com/one/url/index.jsp -v
SSL seeding: OK
GET https://www.onedoiman.com/one/url/index.jsp
User-Agent: check_http/1.54 (nagios-plugins 1.4.0alpha1)
Host: 195.***.***.***

Error in recv()

Do you know where is the problem? What's the meaning of Error in recv()?

Thanks in advance!
