[Nagiosplug-devel] check_ldaps plugin help needed

Found the fix. For whatever reason, the check_ldaps would not bind using 
the IP address whilst with the hostname it worked beautifully( using 
$HOSTALIAS$ instead of $HOSTADDRESS$) <--this being the diff from nagios 
binary to command line...i was running cmd line with hostname

Also note that using double quotes around the ldap query parms proved a 
problem when the DN had a space in the name; using single ticks around 
that fixed that issue as well:

command_line $USER1$/check_ldaps -H $HOSTALIAS$ -b o=company.com -p #### 
-D 'cn=mytest,ou=IT Tester, o=company.com' -P $USER5$ -w 150 -c 300 -t 300
