The getting started guide is split into two parts as there are different ways to approach the topic.
- The first part is the Theoretical part Which deals with the theory and tries to explain how to approach NSClient++. The idea is that this will explain how things work.
- The second part is more hands on part Where I will walk you through getting from a clean install to a fully configured working monitoring agent
In general though you need to understand what NSClient++ tries to be and what it tries to do. You also need to understand that the flexibility is optional if you don't want a complicated setup don't create one. Most things are designed to work "without little or no configuration". But naturally this has to be balanced against security so allowing things is generally disabled by default.
After you have understood how to use NSClient++ please review the guides section where you can find guide for anything ranging from configuring Nagios to checking various aspects of you computer.
