A very good day to you all,

I have 2 questions regarding nagios:

I'm using nagios to monitor my localnetwork and 1 server on the remote network of a customer. Now I have a question regarding monitoring multiple remote hosts.

At this moment I have installed NSclient++ on the main server at the customer, punched a hole in the firewall port (12489) and setup a password to communicate with the nagios server at my office. This works but now I want to monitor multiple servers at the customers office. What is the best approache for this?

Second question, only using a password I find a bit ... yikes.. so how do I configure SSL or something more secure than only a password.
