Specified port in Port Range sensor



Hi, I've got a pretty simple question. When adding a Port Range sensor is there a way to see a specified port which is closed? Currently I only get the number of opened/closed ports when using the sensor and that's not quite satisfying.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm sorry but listing the open/closed ports is not possible. You may want to use a Custom Exe-Sensor to do this.

best regards.

Do you plan to implement it? Having the closed port list in the message would save time to identify which port is closed for faster recovery.

Hello Jakub,

Thank you for your message.

This feature is not planned to be implemented yet, therefore I invite you to open an official feature request for it by following our guideline here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/79245-how-can-i-propose-new-features-or-sensors-for-prtg.

However, please note that the sensor message field allows to display a certain number of characters only and that the number of ports to display can be important.
