making awk available

I require awk to be available but this package is not part of the default Copssh/cygwin build. How can the awk package be installed?

You need to install Cygwin

You need to install Cygwin somewhere to get access to awk. As a workaround, you can download Nagwin free edition from this website, install it on a temporary machine, and extract awk binary and related DLLs.

Thanks tk, very helpful and

Thanks tk, very helpful and pushed me in the right direction. awk is actually not in the Nagios pack but is in Gitwin and the problem is now fixed. Thanks again.
