Seems to be working again from my view!
I'll let Scot confirm as well though, since he reported the bug.
Thanks J.C.!

Oy. Thanks. Confirmed that this is a bug in the EL6 packages (only). EL3, EL4, and EL5 are properly excluded, but for some reason I seemed to think that EL6 supported "-W" in netstat.

I've uploaded RPMs for 4.3.22-3 to http://terabithia.org/rpms/xymon/testing/el6/ for both x86_64 and i686, which should fix the issue.

Upon confirmation, I can move these to production.

I can confirm that this is a bug that I am seeing as well (didn't realize it until now).
Just checked the client log for a machine that I've put the new xymon-client RPM on and the [ports] section is blank.

Hi JC,

In the just released RPM for 4.3.22, the xymon client for Linux ports command was changed to netstat –antuW.  The “W” option is invalid for RHEL6 and causes the ports output to be missing.
