Also, make sure your smokeping.conf file for apache contains something similiar:

Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Try `chmod 640 smokeping-secrets && chown apache:apache smokeping-secrets`.

I believe it will be rejected if it has permissions that are too open. Also it is read by the web server. I would change my apache user and group to smokeping to avoid those confusing details.

Hello all,

I’m beginner on Smokeping and have some trouble with permission while building Master/Slave communication.  I can’t find the solution and i’m looking for help :)

I have a Master and its hostname Smokeping-Master. Fping, Dns, Curl, Radius and Ftp Probes works on it. The Slave (Smokeping-Slave) has just Fping and it works also. Both have same operating system Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.13.0-24-generic x86_64).  I’ll explain my steps at the below.

Configuration from Master;

1-      Slaves file;

root at Smokeping-Master:/etc/smokeping/config.d# vi Slaves
*** Slaves ***

+ Smokeping-Slave

2-      smokeping-secrets file


3-      smokeping-secrets permissions

root at Smokeping-Master:/etc/smokeping# stat smokeping_secrets
                File: ‘smokeping_secrets’
                Size: 27              Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   regular file
Device: fc00h/64512d    Inode: 2885373     Links: 1
Access: (0440/-r--r-----)  Uid: (  105/smokeping)   Gid: (  113/smokeping)

Change: 2014-06-26 10:21:35.972115431 +0300

4-      Targets file

+ RootDNS
probe = FPing
title = Root DNS ICMP Latency
menu = Root DNS ICMP Latency
slaves = Smokeping-Slave

Configuration from Slave;

1-      First created secret.txt file at /var/smokeping and stats for this files and the below and its empty

root at Smokeping-Slave:/var# stat smokeping
  File: ‘smokeping’
  Size: 4096            Blocks: 8          IO Block: 4096   directory
Device: fc00h/64512d    Inode: 1835652     Links: 2
Access: (0777/drwxrwxrwx)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)
Access: 2014-06-26 11:01:20.583395412 +0300
Modify: 2014-06-26 10:20:03.707319328 +0300
Change: 2014-06-26 10:20:03.707319328 +0300

root at Smokeping-Slave:/var/smokeping# stat secret.txt
  File: ‘secret.txt’
  Size: 0               Blocks: 0          IO Block: 4096   regular empty file
Device: fc00h/64512d    Inode: 1836169     Links: 1
Access: (0770/-rwxrwx---)  Uid: (    0/    root)   Gid: (    0/    root)

2-      Last step and permission error at this step.

root at Smokeping-Slave:/# cd /usr/sbin/
root at Smokeping-Slave:/usr/sbin#  ./smokeping --master-url=http://”Master’s IP”/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi \
>              --cache-dir=/var/smokeping/ \
>              --shared-secret=/var/smokeping/secret.txt
WARNING: Opening secrets file /etc/smokeping/smokeping_secrets: Permission denied

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 ?

Best Regards.
