[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#505610: nagios-plugins-basic: check_cups does not work

Package: nagios-plugins-basic
Version: 1.4.12-4
Severity: normal

nagios-plugins-basic defines a check command check_cups, which does not
seem to work correctly. I tested it against two CUPS instances running
on Debian servers (both Etch).

I eventually found out how to fix it: command_line should read
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_http -I '$HOSTADDRESS$' -p 631

I also suggest adding -r 'About CUPS' or similar, to check if there's
actually a CUPS server running on that port.
