I am having trouble installing NRPE on Nagios(Centos6.4).
FYI—I am installing/configuring a home network to perform the installation at work.
OS = Centos 6.4
I have installed/configured the Nagios Core and then the Nagios plugins. I am now installing/configuring NRPE plugin(latest stable release). Installing/configuring NRPE has been successful up this part:
Test NRPE Daemon Install
#netstat –at | grep nrpe----expected results
CHECK NRPE: Error – could not complete handshake.
I googled the error and got check the /etc/xinetd/nrpe and verify the only_from ip is the IP from for nagios monitoring server.
Check the /etc/xinetd/nrpe file only_from section and it is set to http://127.0.0.1/nagios/
Can the loopback be the Nagios Web Interface and/or monitoring server? Is right/wrong? I never created a web interface…help.
