Hello, I would like to test an authentication on a Website: I have an url : http://diog.aem.com In this page , I can Log with a username and password and continue the navigation and the url http://www.diog.aem.com/index.php?task=search is used My problem is : When I check the http sensor http://diog.aem.com with authentication required or not, it's work even with a wrong password I tried the same with http://www.diog.aem.com/index.php?task=search and it's works with wrong password I think prtg only check the time for download the web site and not the authentication process Have you got an ideo to help me ? Thank you

------------- For Information this URL is unreachable on Internet Even with bad password , everything is green Have you got an idea ? Thank you verymuch for your help Best Regards Maxime
Can you please try it with the internal IP then instead of the hostname in the URL? Does this work?
Hi, Thanks for this answer. This URL is an internal tool I have to check. It can't work with IP, dns resolution if necessary. I thought that with PRTG it was possible to check an url plugged in a second plugged in a third etc ... it's the reason why I bought this software (my licence number is ....) Can you help me ? Thank you
It can work of course, but it could also be that PRTG is accessing the URL from the internet. And so not exactly "seeing" what you are seeing. Do you need a HTTP-Transaction sensor? Is this about several URLs to be checked in a sequence?
