DHCP Sensor?



Hey I see that PRTG does not have a built in DHCP Sensor. I tried using the Port sensor to monitor my DHCP Server. I put in the port paramter as 547. However, It turns into a red down and says "Connection refused Socket Error # 10061 Connection refused. (socket error # 10061)"

I've also tried using the PTF CheckDhcp but for some reason I can't get that to work either.

Wondering if someone can help..Thanks

we are already working on a DHCP sensor. It should be available soon.
