I've re-compiled using --disable-ssl to avoid any further problem with ssl, but now I'm getting the:
CHECK_NRPE: Received 0 bytes from daemon.
when I run : ./nrpe -n -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/nrpe.cfg -d
when I ps -ef | grep nrpe all I'm getting is:
nagios 5175 5129 0 09:40:30 pts/6 0:00 grep nrpe
which indicates me daemon isn't even running.
I've compiled exactly as the guide in url above said, but I'm still getting errors, even if the service says it's only under smf.
