Despite previous claims, there is no link to source code and the license included is a proprietary one.

How do I install NCPA on Mac OS X? In the install instructions, I see downloads for Windows, Linux RPM, and DEB packaging. Can any of those options be used for Mac or is there another download somewhere else?
byScott, October 10, 2013
Its license is included with the download. Its the Nagios Open Source License.

What about NCPA license type?
Can be used with Nagios Core or need I to have contract Nagios XI?
