Http\poort sensor




Iam having a little isue

I wanna monitor routers to check if the webpage to loggon to them is still available for now iam using http sensor but it does not work on all my routers 50% give error: HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized

so i was wondering if i could create the same effect by using a poort sensor on the router with poort 80 on it to check if its still available

if any1 has a other idea for monitoring webpages of routers would love to hear.

Thanks in advance,


http poort sensor

in your case you migth want to try the HTTP Advanced Sensor which also supports authentication. This should prevent you from running into the "Unauthorized Errors". Best regards
