custom senor



Hi All,

I have a custom sensor on hand which is a *.exe file. I have ran it from the exe file and it shows [0:05 - connection available]

How do I go about inputting this custom sensor inside PRTG. All help and advice would be greatly appreciated!

cheers, Alex

you would have to place the EXE file in the folder <PRTG Install Directory>\Custom Sensors\EXE. Now go to the web interface and add a new EXE/Script Sensor. From the dropdown EXE/Script you are able to select your EXE file.
Best regards
