What’s New in NSClient++ 0.4.4

Author:Michael Medin

Introduction

The main goals of the 0.4.4 was to get the new installer out.

  • New installer

PLEASE NOTE NRPE has been changed (from 0.4.3), for details read below.

Improved installer

A reworked installer with support for monitoring tools have been added. Currently only op5 is supported but the plan is t support other tools as well. The installer also has a much improved command line interface as well as a lot of bug fixes. We also sign the installer to make it easier to install.

NRPE enhancements (0.4.3)

If you are using NRPE you are in for a chock!

In 0.4.3 we will no longer support the rather insecure regular NRPE!
You can still enable support but you have to do so (in the installer or using the command line mode).
So keep a heads up when you run the installer so you wont miss it.

The idea is that when NSClient++ ships a new check_nrpe will be provided which wont have the limitations of the old one.
