ERROR remote ssl socket was reset? (SSL_ERROR_SSL with errno=9); End of file found

I am trying to use an ssl connection between client and server in "server-side authentication only" mode.
I placed the certificates in the respective /conf folder of nxlog server.
these are the current configurations:

>>> CLIENT <<<
<Output to_syslog_server>
Module om_ssl
Port 516
Exec $Message = to_leef(); to_syslog_ietf();

NXlog om_ssl infinite reconnection with a SaaS Log Centralizer


We are trying to connect NXLog with Logmatic.io with a SSL connection. The certificate provided by Logmatic is valid and works with Rsyslog, Syslog-NG or Open-SSL.

However, no matter how hard we try to connect NXLog we have no success and not enough debugging information to troubleshoot it ourselves.

Here is our config:

Problems using SSL input with NXLog

TL;DR summary: NXLog won't load my certificate - why?

I've set up an NXlog CE server to act as an encrypted entrypoint for a Graylog server. After creating a self-signed certificate and adding it to the configuration, I get an unexpected error in the log when NXlogs starts up.

NXlog cannot verify self-signed CA certificate


I'm trying to foward log events with NXlog to logstash over a SSL connection. Therefore, I generated my own CA certificate and a certificate to be used by logstash for the SSL connection. NXlog is installed on a Ubuntu 14.04 (virtual) machine with the CA certificate added as '/etc/ssl/certs/logstash-ca.crt'.

I tested the connection with

openssl s_client -CAfile /etc/ssl/certs/logstash-ca.cert -connect localhost:5000

and everything works fine (all entered text lines are received by logstash).

However, when I start NXlog with the appropriate om_ssl output configuration it fails with

ERROR SSL certificate verification failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (err: 20)
