Hi, Grant!

Assuming you have configured allowed_hosts directive then you're
probably don't running NRPE under xinetd (inetd). Please, confirm.

Also, check if you do (or don't) have any entries of nagios server in

Yours faithfully,

Subject: [Nagiosplug-help] Host is not allowed to talk to us!

Hi all,

I'm getting a message from the syslog of my nrpe client that says:

Host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is not allowed to talk to us!

In the nrpe.cfg file I have the IP address of the nagios server:


I can ping the server just fine.

This is nrpe v 2.10, and server is nagios 3.0.3.

Any and all help is appreciated!
