[Nagiosplug-help] Check_NRPE Could not complete SSL handshake.

I'm having significant trouble getting this going. I'm running Nagios version 1.2 on BSD 5.3 that I installed using the ports tree. I'm going to be upgrading soon but having had a chance to do it. I've also installed the Check_nrpe plugin version 1.9 and am trying to execute plugin commands on a remote windows 2003 host running nrpe_nt v0.7f. I can't seem to find check_nrpe 2.0 that will compile on BSD 5.3 and when I try to run the command, I get the following error on the Windows host: 
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: NRPE_NT
Event Category: Services 
Event ID: 2
Date:  6/3/2005
Time:  8:18:20 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: servername
NRPE_NT:  Error: Could not complete SSL handshake. 0:1

Can someone please tell me what I should do? Downgrade the client to a version that supports SSL with check_nrpe 1.9?  How might I disable the necessity for SSL altogether? I'm only allowing queries from a specific internet host through my firewall. 
Thanks in advance. 

Dan Knoblauch.
