Ping to different host from Fortigate 80E



Hello all,

I need to verify connectivity from my fortigate 80E (Core switch in a branch office), to different hosts (being exchange servers, Internet gateway etc). I'm using a tunnel across internet to access to those hosts (via static route). I could monitor the tunnel, but it is not enough as I need to know the reachability of each of those hosts.

I've tried the ping sensors, but as you can not specify a destination host, it doesn't work for my scenario.

Could you please tell me how I could monitor those (static) routes ?

If you have any suggestion, don't hesitate!

Thank you in advance.
