When you say it is successful, do you mean that you see something like this:

[root at nagios-server /]# telnet nrpe-client 5666
Trying x.x.x.x...
Connected to nrpe-client.domain.com (x.x.x.x).
Escape character is '^]'.

If you do see something like this (i.e. 'Connected to ...'), then you 
are able to telnet to the host on that port.

What failure are you experiencing? What exactly is the problem? Are you 
using NRPE standalone or through inetd/xinetd? What operating system(s) 
are you using?
