Title: RE: [snips-users] portmon with ssl support.

  Why not compile it as a separate binary, let's say sslmon or sportmon?

Subject: [snips-users] portmon with ssl support.


I needed to add https monitoring to our monitoring system at work so I adapted portmon to work through ssl. It (obviously) needs the openssl libraries to compile with and it doesn't allow non-ssl connections anymore.

I didn't have a lot of time so I wasn't able to make it an option to the existing portmon, though I'm hoping to do so in my spare time.

Attached (I hope) are diffs for the three files I modified. These are differenced from the 1.2beta2 package of Snips.

The files to patch (from the extracted to directory) are: include/portmon.h portmon/main.c portmon/portmon.c

There are no additional variables for ssl handshake timing or validating server certificates. This just does what portmon did but through ssl.

Hopefully I will have a cleaner implementation that allows for portmon/portmon+ssl support in one tool at some time in the future. Until then, these patches might be useful to someone.

I don't have updates to the makefile because I did the compile of my ssl portmon by hand.
