i am trying to get the package nagios_nrpe (nagios-plugins) up and running as the check_mk-agent has unfortunately been removed from core 142.
I have installed both packages and also xinetd and edited the file “etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg”.
Here are the most important lines:
But I cannot connect to the port although the rule is configured correctly. Even on the ipFire system using the telnet command I get the message:
[root@router /]# telnet 127.0.0.1 5666
telnet: connect to address 127.0.0.1: Connection refused
[root@router /]# /etc/init.d/nrpe restart
Stopping nrpe… Not running. [ WARN ]
Starting nrpe… [ OK ]
[root@router /]# /etc/init.d/nrpe status
/usr/bin/nrpe is not running.
