PRTG Network Monitor - Dashboards with actions (TELNET-SSH)

Actions (TELNET-SSH) can also be added in RTG Network Monitor dashboards, customizing map objects for each protocol.

The function (Telnet, SSH) in PRTG can facilitate the work of network administrators, custom network topology made in PRTG dashboards, for allowing direct access to Linux servers, Cisco switches and routers, through CLI command line interface using the Kitty application.

When the user clicks the Putty icon will open a new window with the link to access the action (TELNET-SSH) establishing remote connection to the device via the CLI command line interface.
