NSCP Stops listening for no reason


Several times a day the nsclient++ service needs restarted on one of my windows 2008 R2 Servers

The service is still displayed as ‘running’

And I can see the process nscp.exe exists

But when I try to telnet to the host I get ‘connection refused’

Similarly when I run ‘netstat -a -b’ on the server it doesn’t show anything listening on that port

There are no event logs generated, and nothing in the nsclient log, there is no firewall running on this server

A simple restart of the service fixes the problem but it continues to happen every day, I’ve tried reinstalling from scratch
