NSClient++ Help (#1) - encrypt ini (#781) - Message List
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 passwordseberlin05/23/11 22:48:38 (2 years ago)
Uhmm? 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 . Michael Medinmickem05/24/11 10:01:17 (2 years ago)
i need the encryption because iam not the admin/root on the server. nobody should see the nsc.iniseberlin05/30/11 15:39:50 (2 years ago)
