Question:
When we enable SSL mode 1 or 2 on the hub for communication between the hub and robots, and we try to send an alarm with nimalarm, the process looks like it is working but we never get the alarm.
When we set the SSL mode back to 0 on the hub and restart the hub and robot this works as expected.
Why is this not working when in SSL mode 1 or 2?
 
Environment:
Robot 7.97 and earlier
nimalarm ALL
Answer:
Currently, the nimalarm utility does not support any SSL mode.
this is a test utility only and not designed to be used in production where SSL mode would be enabled.
