Ping

Hello,

Is it not possible to ping an IP of my own choosing (not using the WMI sensors)?

We have a few WAN adresses that we need to ping, but we do NOT want to add them as devices in our PRTG.

Hi Annfinn,

You can use the StatisticalPingXML Sensor from the PRTG Tools Family to ping a comma separated list.

Copy the file into the default directory

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\Custom Sensors\EXEXML

and create an EXE/Script Advanced Sensor in PRTG and pass the parameter

-h=website1,website2

Best regards
