Hell Paessler Support,
I would have need for a sensor that detects the state of a windows network connection. I would like to know when a connection goes from "enabled" to "network cable unplugged" and so on. I do not want to monitor traffic for these NIC though.
Is there a way to do this with existing sensors or could a "Network state sensor" be added in future PRTG releases?
As an alternative I'd program one myself with WMI. That is a different question now but anyways - can custom sensors have setup dialoges like the original sensor? The reason I'm asking is this. If I create an Exe Sensor that queries the state of a connection per WMI I usually would pass the connection name as an argument.
Now, to deploy this for many servers I would for each have to check the available connections and then create a sensor with the correct argument. A wizard / dialogue would be much easier, much like for example with the WMI network card traffic sensor where one can select which NIC to monitor.
Thank you very much!
