Hi

I wanted to set up a File Content Sensor for a ".txt" file. For tests I wrote only "DisplayName" inside the ".txt" file. Now if i search for "DisplayName", prtg allways says "String 'DisplayName' not found".

The file is saved local on the Server.

What is wrong?

thx for the help

greetings

Hello,

Could you please check the path to the file? (settings -> file name)

Please also check the encoding of the file itself and adjust it accordingly in the sensor settings.
