currently we are running a Linux system, with nrpe 2.51, and attempting to get a solaris client running 1.9.
I have gotten it installed, and running in daemon mode. When I run a check locally (check_load -w 15,10,5 -c 30,25,20) I get a positive response. Happy system.
When I switch to the linux server, and run ./check_nrpe -H x.x.x.x -n -p 5666 -c check_load I get a time out, a referance to check server logs, and the server shows: "Jun 13 12:04:50 spstest01 nrpe: [ID 421412 daemon.error] Could not read request from client, bailing out..."
The pluasible causes that rather leap out at me are...
Version issues (is the versioning the same between Solaris and Linux?)
Evil space monkeys.
Ok, I doubt it is the monkeys, but I am rather stuffed on what it could be. I generally take the tactic of figure out what is broke and then fix it, but the only issue I can see is "I can't understand the request".
Any pointers? Any info on where to get a current version?
