I have installed nagios and configured nagios on one server to monitor 
several servers with the check_ping plugin. Everything works great now I 
have installed NRPE on one of the remote servers running Fedora 4. I have 
edited /etc/services and added the following 
 nrpe 5666/tcp # NRPE
 and created a file in /etc/xinetd.d/ called nrpe the contents in it are
  # default: on
# description: NRPE
service nrpe
flags = REUSE
socket_type = stream 
wait = no
user = nagios
server = /home/nagios/nrpe
server_args = -c /home/nagios/nrpe --inetd
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
only_from = <> <-- ip to nagios server
 When I run /etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart I get these errors in 
Sep 17 02:56:19 db1 xinetd: xinetd startup succeeded
Sep 17 02:56:19 db1 xinetd[18797]: bind failed (Address already in use 
(errno = 98)). service = nrpe
Sep 17 02:56:19 db1 xinetd[18797]: Service nrpe failed to start and is 
Sep 17 02:56:19 db1 xinetd[18797]: xinetd Version 2.3.13 started with 
libwrap loadavg options compiled in.
Sep 17 02:56:19 db1 xinetd[18797]: Started working: 0 available services
 Any help would be greatly appreciated.
