Maybe we should give an error and quit rather than just warn.

Definitely, this is what I had in mind. I already have a patch for that.

Also, right now the Nping man page suggests using --no-crypto for
public echo servers.  We might suggest using the empty passphrase ("")
for this instead.  That way the client users don't have to always
remember to pass --no-crypto.  We don't really want to get them in
that habit anyway.

Sure, I'll have a look at the ref guide and update it.
