Hi Tom,

All plugins included in nagios-plugins have to run on the remote host
e.g. executed by nrpe. As far as I remember there are 1 or 2 other
plugins with the same purpose as nrpe but I havent tried them because
nrpe works fine for me. This mailinglist is for answering any question
and this question was not stupid at all.
