Hi Philip,

That's it.  Hit the nail on the head.  Thanks so much!

Hi Grant,

This is probably a configuration issue with your nagios services.cfg file. 
Where you define your service check for SMTP, make sure the 4 hosts you want to monitor are specified in the "host_name" directive, and that the fifth host is not there. This is independent of your NRPE configs.

Hi All,

I have five servers that I want to monitor basic stuff for.  I have check for file system usage on /, /usr/, etc.  I also check swap space.  I want to check SMTP on four of the five servers.  But for some reason I can't seem to stop monitoring on the fifth host.  It keeps on showing up as connection refused (which it should as I don't have mail enabled on the machine).

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

Any and all help is appreciated!
