Cannot monitor additional host



I’ve installed Nagios on an E450 server, and am currently monitoring the E450 server only.
I did add host (linu:evil: in the hosts.cfg file but its performing monitoring on the E450 itself instead of the linux test server.



you have to down load and install the NRPE daemon and plugins. Install nrpe daemon and nrpe.cfg on remotehost. check online nrpe docs at


If in the future, you could suggest using nsca instead of nrpe, it might help people later on, greatly. In other words, passive checking will always be better than active checks, if you can manage to do passive checks. Since his remote box is linux, it should be very simple to setup a passive check.
