Jabber Nagios Notifications – Working Again!

I like using non-email notifications, especially when monitoring, you know, email.  So I have notifications going out via twitter and google talk.  Of the three, the order of speediness is:

  1. Google Talk
  2. Twitter
  3. Email

So I was really sad when the google talk notifications stopped working late last week.  It took awhile for me to have time to fix them, though, and basically I just found a google groups post telling me what to do.  Namely, this at the top:

use IO::Socket::SSL;
{
no warnings ‘redefine’;
my $old_connect_SSL = \&IO::Socket::SSL::connect_SSL;
*IO::Socket::SSL::connect_SSL = sub {
my $sock = $_[0];
${*$sock}{_SSL_arguments}{SSL_cipher_list} = ‘RC4-MD5’;
goto $old_connect_SSL;
};
}

Merci beaucoups à Cédric Bouvier pour la correction!
