NSCA Help: Network server bind failure


#1

Hi guys,
I’m trying to get NSCA running on my Nagios box. I’m currently monitoring about 200 hosts and would like to start checking disk space and things like that. When I try to run nsca (/usr/sbin/nsca -c /etc/nsca.cfg) I get this error in /var/log/daemon:

Oct 11 11:21:42 monitor1 nsca[8104]: Network server bind failure (98: Address already in use)
Oct 11 11:24:58 monitor1 nsca[8615]: Network server bind failure (98: Address already in use)
Oct 11 12:17:34 monitor1 nsca[16865]: Network server bind failure (98: Address already in use)
Oct 11 12:18:00 monitor1 nsca[16930]: Network server bind failure (98: Address already in use)

I’ve looked over all the docs and message boards and I cant find anything wrong with my configs …can anyone give me and hand and try to figure out what I’m doing wrong?

Set it up to run under xinetd as shown in the README and maybe I will be able to help.
