Hi glynner,
First I would like to apologize for my bad english. Let’s go back to your question, which all new users face when they start using Nagios: you would like to perform remote checks using external commands, right?
You can perform remote checks only by using one of the addons implemented by Nagios: check_by_ssh or NRPE.
Yet I advise you to used NRPE that is really easy to use. So include check_nrpe in the definition of your command.
Hopefully these few lines would help you.
PS: if you need to learn more about Nagios please browse this website: www.m-secureit.com/nagios/. You can also post a message and I will try to help you as far as I can
