I need to check http server where authentication is required. I don't want to log in, just check that there is web server response on that port and address, 401 is good enoug. Is there some way for me to ignore the 401, and return OK to the PRTG as long as I'm getting response from the web server.

Thanks Petr

401 http unauthorized

Seeing as 401 is an error message the sensor would always turn red. The only option would be to provide the necessary credentials to log in, otherwise the sensor will fail.

However, would monitoring the port in case suffice? If so, you could use a port sensor instead.
