Could he not piggy back these checks somehow and use the hostname translation?

Hi Denis,

unfortunately you won't be able to use check_mk checks woithout a remote site. Multisite is the only solution for this.

Hi All,
I started using check_mk some months ago and I find it fantastic!!!

Now I have a question and I haven't found any solutions surfing internet....

- My check_mk host is host A, and it has complete access to host B;
- I have some SNMP legacy devices connected to a vpn on host B
- How can I instruct check_mk to run the snmp command in the remote host? Or is there something to "proxy" the request?

I prefer to not use a multisite solutions.
I've see mrpe but it seems usable only for hold nagios check and not for the check_mk checks.
I've see datasource_programs but it permit me to only check-mk-agent through ssh or something else, I would like to start an snmp check from ssh. Is this possible?
Thank you all
