A small perl script that checks to see if a TCP port is open on a remote host and produces timing statistics for nagios.
Tries to create a session to a remote TCP port to test if the port is available, it also can produce timing statistics for Nagios to collect.

How can I add this component to my Nagios XI?

Works really well with minimal dependencies. I edited this to reverse the normal alert, in order to alert if RDP is accessible on windows hosts. It took maybe 5 quick changes, because it is clearly written.
