NRPE Issues



  • Hi all,  I am trying to get he nrpe package working on my 2.1 boxes and both experiense the same issues.  running check_nrpe locally it works

    /usr/local/libexec/nagios/check_nrpe2 -H <ip>NRPE v2.13

    However running it from my remote monitoring system I get this

    CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds.

    I have a firewall rule to allow the traffic, I also have Bind IP Address set to my external WAN address  and  Nagios Server(s) set to localhost, the devices ip and my remote server. but can not make it work. netstat shows the connection

    Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address          Foreign Address        (state)
    tcp4      0      0 <localip>.5666        <monserver>.48395    ESTABLISHED

    Any ideas??</monserver></localip></ip>



  • So noone has any ideas?



  • Check logs. It might happen due to ssl issues
