Whenever I try to do the "Request Access" task, I get an error saying "Unable to access encrypted target system."  I know that SSH works between the director server and the agent, and vice-versa.  Is there some certificate that needs to be passed around?

Check the Console and selected "Encryption Preferences" and disabled encryption on the server. Some Director Agents are encrypted by default and other are not.

After trying various settings we were unable to get the Linux machines to properly connect with Director so we abandoned using Director.
