If I understand your situation correctly: turn the server with connection
to the main xymon server into a proxy and point the NAS to that proxy. I
believe you would have to install the xymon server there (to provide the
xymonproxy utility) turn off everything you don't need in tasks.cfg and
turn on xymonproxy. The comments are good in the file about how to do this.
You may have to use the arg to xymonproxy to tell it to listen to a
different ip than the standard one if the server is dual homed and the NAS
is on, say, a private network.

I'm not sure if the proxy needs hosts.cfg. On my proxy it already does
because it was private network tester before it was a proxy.
