ICMP instead of SNMP

Is there any way to provision a device in Nagios and tell it to only ping the device. We are performing NAT to get to this device and SNMP and NAT do not play well together… Thanks

You can perform any check you want on a device. There is nothing that says you have to run a snmp check on one. So yea, just define check_ping for the service check on a host.
