Hi all,

I use smokeping since some month without issue, i want to try to have the latency from an other source.
I've installed smokeping 2.6.8-2 on both systems (debian).
All seams to be ok on the master side, the process restart without any error.
On the slave system i've this error : 
"WARNING: Data from **SLAVEHOSTNAME** was signed with **KEY** which does not match our expectation"

I've search during some hour and try everything i've found, at the start the version on the raspberry was not the same as the master, i've uninstall completely smokeping on the slave and force the installation of the 2.6.8-2 (the version on the master).

There is how i've configure all that, don't hesitate to say me if you see the error :

Master configuration :
File : /etc/smokeping/master_secrets

chmod 640 /etc/smokeping/master_secrets
chown www-data:root /etc/smokeping/master_secrets

File : /etc/smokeping/config.d/Slaves
display_name = hostname

File : /etc/smokeping/config.d/Targets
I've Added : slaves = **SlaveHostName**

Slave Configuration :
File : /etc/smokeping/slave_secret
SecretWord // Only the Secret Work

chmod 600 /etc/smokeping/slave_secret
chown smokeping:root /etc/smokeping/slave_secret

I've create a cache directory :
mkdir /var/smokeping
chown smokeping:root /var/smokeping

File : /etc/init.d/smokeping
DAEMON_ARGS="" to "DAEMON_ARGS="--master-url=http://MasterIP/smokeping/smokeping.cgi" --cache-dir=/var/smokeping/ --shared-secret=/etc/smokeping/slave-secret"

After that a service smokeping restart on both (Maste First).
No error on the master but the error :
"WARNING: Data from **SLAVEHOSTNAME** was signed with **KEY** which does not match our expectation"

thanks a lot in advance for all help you could give me, i have tested all the google solution i've found but nothing works
