SSL certificat and nsclient++ vs winnrpe

Postby cormansa » Wed Feb 09, 2022 6:00 am

Hi,

I have 2 questions :
:arrow: What is the best windows clients :?:
nsclient++ or winnrpe

IMHO : winnrpe is more easier than nsclient++ (for configuration part)

:arrow: In found this webpage: https://support.nagios.com/kb/article.php?id=519
But is this article can be used for a winnrpe client ?

Best regards
cormansa

NSClient++ hasn't received a release in ~3 years, but is by far the more popular solution:
https://nsclient.org/

You can configure the NSClient++ NRPEServer with a SSL certificate:
https://docs.nsclient.org/reference/cli ... ertificate

I'm not sure if it'll be NRPE v3 compatible, though. Likely at lest NRPE v2 compatible.

NCPA is the windows agent that is officially maintained by the same people maintaining Nagios Core/XI:

That's probably a better question for the folks who maintain winrpe:

Well, I'm back on this thread because I'm trying to use NCPA as recommended.
I have a problem, I have a windows server in french, so when I want to monitore a particular process, I gave a error :

An error occured:
'utf8' codec can't decode byte 0xe8 in position 463: invalid continuation byte

arrrg :oops:

There are some issue on github (reported in 2021) :
439 - 608 - 770

Normally, this will be fixed in version 3.0.0 but where is this version 3.0.0.
