Usage: nrpe [-n] -c <config_file> [-4|-6] <mode>

Options:

-n = Do not use SSL

<config_file> = Name of config file to use

-4 = use ipv4 only

-6 = use ipv6 only

<mode> = One of the following operating modes:

-i = Run as a service under inetd or xinetd

-d = Run as a standalone daemon

-d -s = Run as a subsystem under AIX

Notes:

This program is designed to process requests from the check_nrpe

plugin on the host(s) running Nagios. It can run as a service

under inetd or xinetd (read the docs for info on this), or as a

standalone daemon. Once a request is received from an authorized

host, NRPE will execute the command/plugin (as defined in the

config file) and return the plugin output and return code to the

check_nrpe plugin.
