There have been a few ssl security holes recently and the fixes have
AIUI involved disabling some older insecure features.  It might be worth
restarting the qmaster if you've applied any patches since it last
started (probably not the issue but fairly simple to do).

It looks more like the other way around to me.  SSL problems prevent a
connection which qconf reports.  However to be sure I'd check:

telnet proton 6444 #Should tell you if a tcp connection can be
established alternatively use netcat

openssl s_client -connect proton:6444 #Should tell you whats going on
with ssl negotiation

qping -ssl proton 6444 qmaster 1 #Minimal does it speak grid engine


I'd give
