Are you sure you are using the correct Connection Security with the correct port number?
Quite common to use SSL/TLS.

that's the only thing i can think of.

Check for missing ssl lib on that server. Is ZABBIX installed via package ? Please more details about machine

Hi, no I installed the Zabbix as an appliance, that is an VM running on Vsphere 4.1

hmm, if Username and Password are correct this shows that it should work. Please check /var/log/syslog for error messages around the time you tested this. Please post results (check for cleartext security relevant data first - like passwords - and replace them).
