Is there a sensor type that can monitor a Netbeui only device



One of my clients has a machine-shop with CNC machines. Many are TCP/IP connected and therefore can be monitored easily with a ping etc. However some older machines using MSDOS / WFW 3.11 networking only use Netbeui in this environment.

I would like to monitor connectivity for these older systems...

If you can connect to these machines using NET SHARE, you can first issue the NET SHARE command and next check if the path exists in a batch-file-sensor.

Thanks for the idea Gerard, I'll give this a try when I get a minute.
