DHCP requests won't get passed outside the subnet that they're
broadcasted in unless you specifically tell your routers to do so.  I
wouldn't recommend that, though; you're probably better off using NRPE
or something similar to do the check on the remote serer and pass the
result back to your Nagios box.

1.4.11). It works fine on the local subnet. I can't get it to work 
across subnets to remote dhcp servers. Am I missing or not
