Telnet to Cisco devices



Is it possible to telnet out of PRTG to my Cisco devices? That would make perfect sense to me, simply right clicking on the Cisco device and telnet to the monitored device instead of leaving PRTG and starting a DOS telnet.

this is possible by defining 'Telnet' as a new Tool in the Enterprise Console.
