Hi,

I have a question regarding the VPN's. Is it possible to send probes or ping from PRTG through a VPN tunnel so the tunnel stays open? The problem we face is that the VPN's will terminate the connection when in idle making it difficult to monitor. Is there a possibility in PRTG to make sure that to that peer we send a continious ping or probe to keep the tunnel open? Thank you in advance

Regards,

Justin

Hello Justin,

You could add a device to PRTG that is located on "the other side" of the tunnel and use a ping sensor.

Kind regards,

Erhard
