nsclient++

0.3.7 Released

Posted by mickem at 2009-10-12

New version out mainly a fix for the problems of 0.3.6 version. Major changes:

  • Added argument support to NRPE Client * Some additions and fixes CheckWMI
  • Improved installer (works on w2k8 etc) * NSCA feature and stability improvments
  • New command line switchs to easily use NSClient++ from external scripts
  • Added "firewall exception" to installer * Fixed an issue with the socket data buffer
  • Fixed issue with CheckExternalScripts and script_dir
  • Fixed issue with CheckDisk and paths
  • Documentation!

I think the major thing is the documentation apart from some bug fixes and installer improvements such. Regardless it is a recommended update. '''NOTE''' It is late so I shall update sourceforge and what not tomorrow.
