Monitoring ran into error

hello
I have installed nrpe client on another linux
the following displayed when I clicked on the Service Detail


Host Service Status Status Information

mylinux check_disk CRITICAL CHECK_NRPE:
Error - Could not
complete SSL handshake


why?
by the way,why cannot I open this forum for the time being?
thank you!

The nrpe docs say the client is installed on the central nagios server and the daemon is installed on the remote machine. That’s why you can’t complete a handshake, since there is no daemon running on the remote machine. Read the README again, it will explain exactly how to setup nrpe.

ok,thank you,I’ll try it againg!

oops,

My detail configuration for nrpe on remote host are as follows:
[root@localhost nrpe-2.0]# ./configure
[root@localhost nrpe-2.0]# make all
[root@localhost nrpe-2.0]# cp src/nrpe /usr/local/nagios/
[root@localhost nrpe-2.0]# cp nrpe.cfg /usr/local/nagios/
[root@localhost nrpe-2.0]# mkdir /usr/local/nagios/libexec
Copy these plugins( check_disk check_load check_procs check_users)from /usr/local/nagios/libexec directory on nagios server to /usr/local/nagios/libexec/ directory on the remote host
Add nrpe 5666/tcp # NRPE to /etc/services
vi /etc/xinetd.d/nrpe

default: on

    # description: NRPE
    service nrpe
    {
            flags           = REUSE
            socket_type     = stream
            wait            = no
            user            = nagios
            server          = /usr/local/nagios/nrpe
            server_args     = -c /usr/local/nagios/nrpe.cfg --inetd
            log_on_failure  += USERID
            disable         = no
            only_from       = 192.168.250.238 #my nagios server IP address
    }

The following are configurations on nagios server
The following lines are added to /usr/local/nagios/etc/checkcommands.cfg on nagios server
define command{
command_name check_nrpe
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c $ARG1$
}
The following lines are added to /usr/local/naigos/etc/hosts.cfg on nagios server
define host{

notification_period 24x7
notification_options d,u,r
}
The following lines are add ed to /usr/local/nagios/etc/services.cfg on nagios server
