Telnet sensor responses



Your Vote:



Good afternoon,

I trying to create a personalized sensor in PRTG for the telnet connection of a Linux device. The telnet sensor ( port sensor with the especific telnet port) works ok but I need the reply of several commands through this sensor. This device has commands like getlog, gethealth, getredundancy....

Who knows how can I create them?

Thank you.

The Port sensor can only proceed one command per sensor. If you would like to send several telnet commands to your Linux device, you can write an own script and iport it to PRTG with one of the following sensors:
