Is there a way to monitor SSH availability for a Router?



I want to be able to monitor the availability of SSH via my admin account on several Cisco routers. Previously I've monitored this as a router can be up, but I would have issues with accessing them via SSH. I see PRTG has options for SSH monitor through Linux systems and SANs, however I don't see anything for Cisco routers.

You could use the Port Sensor and point it to port 22? :)

Kind regards,
