RDP connection quality from remote client.




I have task for PRTG with following parameters:
1) Core Server located in "Network 1"
2) Remote Probe located in "Network 1"
3) RDP Server located in "Network 1"
4) Remote client located in "Network 2"

How i can from Remote Probe get information about RDP connection quality (RDP Sensor) from Remote Client to RDP Server? Only with some PowerShell script or EXE?

prtg rdp rdp-sensor

Hi there,

I am not sure how you would technically measure the quality of the RDP Connection as this is only calculated by the remote desktop service once you are fully connected to the remote server.

But still the only way with your setup would be a custom script that runs on the "Remote Client" and which checks whether Port "3389" is reachable and how long it needs to answer. The results can then be send via the "HTTP Push Data" Sensors:

Best Regards.
