That's a great idea, but I wanted to make sure that the port was actually accepting connections, not just that the process was running.

Plus, I don't want to have to install Nagios on the target machine as it is OS X, and not always nice to me when I ask it to compile or assemble packages.  I just don't have the time to fuss with it.

I don't use check_udp but check_procs, which checks the number of "openvpn"
processes running. I am running it via NRPE.
