Hi all.

I'm trying to install a nagios server in a jail.

I've a problem with check_ping. 

[root@]# /usr/local/libexec/nagios/check_ping -H some_host -w 3000.0,80% -c 5000.0,100% -p 5
CRITICAL - You need more args!!!
Could not open pipe: 

So I think it's become the «ping problem». So I put 

	sysctl -w security.jail.allow_raw_sockets=1

in the host-jail-server.

In the jail I can make a ping but the nagios check_ping don't work. 

Anyone have succefully install a nagios server in a jail ?
