    sorry for my bad english.
    Here my question:

    is it possible to encrypt the nsc.ini?
    ok i can encrypt the file with an external tool but after this, the nsclient doesn`t work.
    iam not the only admin on the server and therefor i want to encrypt the ini.

    thanks a lot

    You can encrypt (read obfuscate) the password not the entire file.

    ok too bad.

    it will be a nice feature for the next nsclient generation.
    i can encrypt the hole folder but the nsclient service doesn`t know the password

    Not to be negative here but…

    If nsclient doesn’t know the password it will be a tad hard for it to read it :P

    I am not really sure what the purpose would be?

    Since nsclient++ needs to read the information the information will be visible in some fashion why would you need encryption?

    The idea with the obufuscation for password was to protect against a casual glance

    i need the encryption because iam not the admin/root on the server.
    nobody should see the nsc.ini

    Doesn’t really seem like a core feature… If someday scripted configuration will be supported I guess that would be a way…
