Mike & Pete one question more, sorry dudes...

I have the Nagios server on Linux, Have installed nrpe
v2.0 on FreeBSD, when using check_nrpe from linux box,
I get CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds
error, theres no firewall, but when using chekc_nrpe
from FreeBSD to FreeBSD it works fine. ie chekcing
load, disk etc...

I run nrpe2 as daemon mode not using inetd or xinetd
allowed the hosts in my network ie 2.0

Any clue regarding the error, version issue is not
there, bcos both linux and freebsd use the same nrpe.

Thanx for any input.

Deepak Naidu.
