NSCA (Nagios Service Check Acceptor) is a means by which host and check results can be passed into Opsview Monitor from a remote source.

## Installation

The `opsview-nsca` package is available for download from:

Ubuntu14 (Trusty)https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/opsview-customers/NSCA/opsview-nsca_6.0.0.201902071733-1trusty1_amd64.deb
Ubuntu16 (Xenial)https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/opsview-customers/NSCA/opsview-nsca_6.0.0.201902071733-1xenial1_amd64.deb

After installing the package on either the Orchestrator and/or Collectors you may need to amend your firewall to allow port 5667 through.

If `/opt/opsview/nsca/etc/nsca.cfg` did not previously exist, a password is randomly generated and put into the file. If you need to specify the password, edit this file and set `password` (and any other settings) as appropriate for your needs.

The NSCA daemon will not be started automatically; you need enable the configuration and reload opsview_watchdog:

The NSCA daemon will then be started and available for connections.
