How to monitor SharePoint?



I'm using a HTTP sensor with Authentication to monitor a Sharepoint page. I configure it with a username/password that works when I go to the page manually. When I start the sensor, I receive a HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized message. Is there another way of doing this? Is this supported with PRTG?

Hi, I have also some sharepoint-site-sensors. It must be "Einfache Zugriffsauthentisierung (HTTP)" and not NTLM.
