Temperature sensing using external sensor and HTTP push data sensor

Hi guys, we have been following the guide (link at bottom) provided on the PAESSLER blog about setting up a temperature sensor that would send its data using the HTTP push data sensor. However, were having an issue that the data doesn't seem to be being received by the push data sensor, and when we follow our HTTP get request that is being produced, we are met by a refused to connect error.

Is there something in our PRTG setup settings that is preventing the data from being sent?

Could an example HTTP get request be provided so that we may compare it to our own?

We have the temperature sensor connected into my laptop which has currently been setup as a remote probe, however the laptop is kept in the same building as the computer for our PRTG core server, would this present any issues?

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for the KB-Post. You can definitely run a test against HTTP Push Data Sensor with a simple browser (from the machine which would run the Python Script). If you'll share the settings of the sensor with us, we can give the exact URL to test with.

best regards.

Would you be able to clarify what information you need from the sensor settings for me please?

This is the HTTP GET request that our program is generating, are there any issue with it that you are able to see?

http://10.228.0.10:5050/3D692BD4-5770-4A7B-991A-294FB24021C4?content={"prtg": {"result": [{"channel": "temperature", "float": 1, "value": 25.17}, {"channel": "humidity", "float": 1, "value": 41.8}]}}

Thanks for the help.

The URL looks okay so far, but we can only validate it with the full settings of the sensor. Thank you.

The easiest way is really just send a screenshot showing the full settings page of the sensor. You can also send it via email of course.
