firewall is disabled
Also, please note, i was stuck up while configuring nagios plugins on the client. On searching a workaround i came across following post
./configure appears to hang
If you find that the configure script appears to hang on this line:
checking for redhat spopen problem...
Then you probably have a badly configured DNS server. This part of configure is testing for a pthread problem in Bind that is a kernel problem on some Red Hat derived versions of Linux (around kernel 2.6.9-11). It runs 10 x 100 nslookup calls to see if your kernel has this problem. If it does, then at least 1 of those calls will fail. Failure rate could be anywhere between 1% and 50%.
To force the workaround and ignore the test, run ./configure with the --enable-redhat-pthread-workaround switch.
You can run ./configure with --disable-redhat-pthread to ignore this test.
Hence i configured nagios plugins with the option --enable-redhat-pthread-workaround
Do you think this is causing the problem
