Import of certificate fails "unreachable"

I am running LMS 2.6 and trying to import the certificate from our syslog server fails with server unreachable. I log into the syslog server (which is ciscoworks) and the self-signed certificate is valid. From my syslog server I can import the certificate of my ciscoworks server with no problems. I tried deleting the certificates, recreating them, bringing down the daemon and I still cannot import syslog server certificate into my ciscoworks server. I am running LMS 2.6 on Solaris 9. Thanks for your help.

The certificate import happens over the SSL port (tcp/443 by default). Perhaps you have a firewall rule that does not allow SYNs from the CiscoWorks server to the syslog server, but they are allowed in the opposite direction. Anoter thing to check is that the syslog collector hostname (both short and fully-qualified) properly resolves on the CiscoWorks server.
