Title:CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout, client is Solaris
FAQ ID:F0362

Description:I have nagios master host as a FC3 Linux box and wanted to monitor a few linux servers and few solaris servers using NRPE. For Linux it was a cake walk but for Solaris it was not working with NRPE 1.3 or 1.9 package that I installed from the net. I tried a lot of things but it did not work. 

Solution:What worked was I got the src for NRPE 2.0 and compiled it with SSL support. Installed this and it worked with no changes. I really spent a lot of time trying to debug this and used -n or without but it was not giving any results. There was a vague error message in the client /var/adm/messages as: Could not read request from client, bailing out... I really hope this helps some Solaris users out there. Thanks Vijay
