Shots in the dark, really...

Check that your config file is in UNIX format. I've had issues with CR
LF being wrong in the past producing some odd results. The error at
line 3 hints to this.

Any trailing spaces after the + FPing line? Not sure if that matters
but worth a check.

Is your fping application really at that path? Mine is in a different location.

In my config, I don't re-specify the path to fping for each ++ item
under the original since they inherit parent settings. Shouldn't
