Multiple http sensors for same server



Your Vote:



I have a Windows web server. I ran the auto setup and it has 2 http sensors, and FTP sensor and and RDP sensor.

My question is why does it have 2 http sensors? The server has 20 websites on it, so its not for each website. It also has multiple FTP sites and it only created one FTP sensor.

I have not been able to find a way looking at the sensor to see what website its for.

Hey jwashburn,

I think this is easy to describe.
You got two HTTP Sensors, because of two diffrent protocols (HTTP / HTTPS) or because of diffrent Webserver Ports used (:80 / :8080).

You can look to your settings of the sensor, there should be more information about it.
