Not able to start nrpe daemon


I have problem with nrpe starting as deamon
I have installed nrpe and nagios plugins
and when i start nrpe as deamon and see the output of ps -aux | grep nrpe
i get nothing but

root 5216 0.0 0.0 1704 612 pts/1 S 00:09 0:00 grep nrpe

also i am starting nrpe as deamon by following cmmnd

/usr/local/bin/nrpe -c /etc/nrpe.cfg -d



Can any one help me out with this problem


from shell my nrpe wrks fine shows correct results for check_load
but in nagios webinterface i get sockettimeout err
