Monitoring internal certificates in a skype edge environment



Hello and merry friday!

I am in need of a sensor to alert 30d before a certificate expires. What makes this a bit more complicated is that they are our own internal certs that create the trust between our skype FE and skype edge servers. Does anyone have any tips for monitoring this?

Hello there.
This is definitively something you should be able to implement with PRTG.

The SSL Certificate Sensor can be used for this. As long as the Local Probe or a Remote Probe is able to reach the relevant endpoint (the TCP Socket) you will be use the built-in sensor for this.

Simply create devices corresponding to the servers (For example: sip.contoso.com, sfbedge.contoso.com, etc..) and deploy the SSL Certificate sensor (IMPORTANT: Pointed at the correct TCP Port of the service) on these devices.

You can read more about the SSL Certificate Sensor (and some examples) here:
