While setting up nrpe monitoring on a new dev machine, I've run into a bit of a snag. I've followed all of the recommend steps I could find, and still to no avail.
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H localhost -n results in a socket timeout, regardless of the the time specified with -t.
netstat -latnp | grep 5666 results in: tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5666 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 26718/nrpe
I'm using 12.04 LTS. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
