if you do not want to do a search through older mails :-> in this list, you
may append -n to the command line on both nagios host an monitored client.
In my case, I use "check_nrpe -n -H ...." on the nagios host and "nrpe -c
/etc/nrpe.cfg -n --inetd" on the monitored host.

When you search long enough you may find the info that -n disables SSL
communication. And when you search a bit more, you will find the way you
can create and share the certificates that are needed for SSL ;-)
