[Nagiosplug-help] basic check_httpd configuration

I've worked with Nagios before (back when it was Netsaint) as an admin, but 
I've never had to configure and set it up before.  I've got the system 
compiled and running, which is, you know good.


For the life of me, I haven't been able to configure service checks outside 
of the default ones.  For example, check_http.  I can't get it to check for 
servers running on ports outside of port 80.  Now I read -h and I can do it 
from a command line (./check_http -h server -p 8080) but I can't set it up 
in services.cfg and get it to run.  I know I'm probably missing something 
simple, but I can't for the life of me find it in the documentation. I 
tried check_http!-h host-p8080 and so forth, but I'm just missing it.  Can 
anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
