On the server box (192.168.2.2)
I have a clean install of ossec server with ossec-wui on CentOS6.4.
I run /var/ossec/bin/manage_agents and add the client (192.168.2.3) to it.
I run service ossec-hids restart

On the client box (192.168.2.3)
I run /var/ossec/bin/manage_client, add the key, and exit.  
I see that in /var/ossec/etc/client.key exists
I run /service ossec-hids restart and get the below error:

Starting ossec-hids: 2013/11/15 11:54:59 ossec-agentd(4105):Error no valid server IP found.
2013/11/15 ossec-agentd(1215):Error: No client configured. Exiting

I have searched on the web and can not find out how to fix this.  How do I get the client to show up on the server?

I got it sorted out.  downloaded the source from www.ossec.net and installed it following http://devio.us/~ddp/ossec/docs27/ossec101/installation/install_agent_linux.html instructions.
