Using FTP in Nagios to deploy NSClient++

Many customers showed interest in deploying NSClient++ to multiple machines across a windows domain, without the need to log in remotely or be physically present on these machines.

Additional information on deploying NSClient++ via FTP in Nagios will be available soon.
