 I am attempting for the first time to use a master+slave setup, and cannot
 get it to work at all, with the same error Shawn Rose was posting.

| # /usr/local/bin/smokeping --master-url=http://MASTER/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi --cache-dir=/usr/local/var/smokeping --shared-secret=/usr/local/var/smokeping/secrets.txt
| WARNING: Data from SLAVE was signed with 0911e2518c506c0d31100223804a550b which does not match our expectation
| ERROR: we did not get config from the master. Maybe we are not configured as a slave for any of the targets on the master ?

 I have literally copied the secrets file and smokeping binary from master to
 slave, and they both run 2.4.1. Nothing useful in the logs even in debug mode.
