Hi Eli				

I've been faced with the exact same problem on gentoo that you've
 had. I've been banging my head against a brick wall for ages now...

It turns out that you can't use a space when listing the allowed
 ip's in nrpe.cfg

I had :

allowed_hosts=, XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

which didn't work at all...

When I changed it to :


it works perfectly!

Something tells me it's a little oversight in the code for nrpe...

Hope this works for you...I know that there are lots of people out
 there suffering from the same problem...
