I tried csync2 again tonight for simpler stuff than what I would use puppet for. Seems like there is a big bug with csync2 and ssl:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=501289

I’m just not using ssl for now:

nossl * *;
group serverfarm{...}

Hopefully it gets fixed soon!

I had gotten it to work last year as described here: http://www.docunext.com/blog/2008/03/csync2-on-debian.html
