Cannot find a download source for Nagios NRPE for RHEL6

emmma1223 asked:

I need to install Nagios NRPE on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6.0, but every guide I’ve found so far describes compiling it from source. This system does not have gcc installed and it is firewalled such that it cannot access the package repositories needed to install gcc via yum. Is there some place I can download the NRPE package manually?

My answer:


You can find NRPE and many other Nagios-related packages in the EPEL repository, which is practically a must-have for most RHEL/CentOS systems.

If you can’t install standard software on the system, you need to have a long chat with whoever is running the network/firewall about why not.
