nsclient is not working error: could not fetch information from server

While setting up several new servers and installing NSCLIENT, I ran into the following error message:

could not fetch information from server

Memory Usage

WARNING 07-11-2012 15:53:21 1d 11h 20m 21s 3/3 could not fetch information from server

NSClient++ Version

WARNING 07-11-2012 15:44:28 1d 23h 23m 14s 3/3 could not fetch information from server

Well, that could definitely be a problem. My fault this time was in editing the NSC.ini after installation. The allowed_hosts line of:


ns client++ log window says
Error: ./NSclientlistener unothorized access from

how can i solve this problem?

Did you stop and restart the service on Windows after modifying nsc.ini?
