I thnk something is wrong with your nsclient setup. you should go to the nagios command line and test that the checkNT is actually working with a manual test

if you login to the console of your nagios server. Go to the nagios libexec directory. on mine its in: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/

In this directory is all the nagios commands. You can run them manually to test them before configuring hosts and services. You can test the plugin as follows.

./check_nt -H <ipaddress of remote system>


here are the rest of the arguments.
Usage:check_nt -H host -v variable [-p port] [-w warning] [-c critical][-l params] [-d SHOWALL] [-t timeout]

use from the root path

find . -name check_nt

It will show you your nagios path. on some distros nagios uses  different paths.

Ok cool. So if you go into that directory you can run the test command to get the results in the window. This will give you a good idea of where the error is occuring

Looks like the server is blocking the NRPE connectiong. I would test one more time with the server IP address instead of its hostname (unless you know DNS server is accurate).

If you still get the same problem. Then you will need to trouble shoot the windows server and make sure that check_nt traffic is allowed

On the windows side. In the nsc.ini, you can disable the section where password is required.

If you have to have a password, then you will need to modify your check_nt command defenition to include the password.
