Does the OpenWrt zabbix-agentd package support TLS?
I found this pull request from 2018:
# zabbix: Add SSL support for zabbix-agentd. Fixes #5675
that made me think it does, but when I try to start my zabbix-agentd with TLS settings in the config I get messages like this in the log:
"TLSKeyFile" configuration parameter cannot be used: Zabbix agent was compiled without TLS support
I'm running OpenWrt 19.07.3 r11063-85e04e9f46 and the zabbix-agentd package is version 4.0.16-3
@timw, welcome to the community!
Yes, if you compile it with TLS support.
(There's many reasons encryption is not packaged across-the-board by default; but that's a topic for other threads.)
@lleachii and @timw thanks for mentioning there is tls support for zabbix agent.
Till now I was using imagebuilder to compile my openwrt image and I like that way of compiling a lot, mostly because is fast and I only use the stable releases.
But to get zabbix agent to work with tls support I had to resort to building it with the normal build system.
Thanks to the great wiki  that was not difficult.
And I understand the default nossl support, but this is why I like these kind of free (as in freedom) projects, you still have a choice to customize to your needs
So kudo's to the devs too.
Thanks for the new 21.02.0 release.
And I'm glad that although wolfSSL is the default SSL library, that zabbix-agentd can still be compiled with OpenSSL support.
