NRPE - Nagios Remote Plugin Executor
why is it I'm getting this using NRPE 2.15?
# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H localhost
CHECK_NRPE: Error - Could not complete SSL handshake.

but, when I try
#/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H
NRPE v2.15

Solution - you need to add your server IP to the allowed_hosts parameter under nrpe.cfg file on the host being monitored.

Will not work for me. I get the following error:

egrep: /var/log/messages: Permission denied
OK - No major errors found in messages file.

I tried changing the file messages file owner, group, and permissions but no luck.

Great plugin! FYI - if you are using Digest Authentication and have the latest version of Wget this plugin will work. This is the only plugin that works with Digest authentication.
Enhancement Request - if you could add a way to check for a string on a web page then it would be the best Nagios plugin for web site monitoring.

I tried the plugin with basic auth and digest and received the following errors. Any suggestions on how to resolve these would be appreciated.

for basic auth - Use of uninitialized value in printf at /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_allnet4500.pl line 286.
Sensors OK - 0 sensors checked:

For Digest - Unable to recognise encoding of this document at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/XML/SAX/PurePerl/EncodingDetect.pm line 96.
No semi-colon found after entity name [Ln: 33, Col: 81]
