NRPE failed ssl handshake

Can't get nrpe to work but config looks ok.

My remote host is behind a firewall and IP address is nated.

Run dmesg | tail

Get this message (Lots of them):

Sep 11 14:32:56 host nrpe[3321]: [ID 381997 daemon.error] Host 196.4.165.245 is not allowed to talk to us!

Add IP address in nrpe.cfg file:

allowed_hosts=127.0.0.1,xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,196.4.165.245
 and restart nrpe daemon.
