User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to configure the "SSL Certificate" sensor to make its check on a specific URL with file name (example https://www.mysitetomonitor.com/download/myfile.zip).

Details of User Story

On a web server environment with directory listing disabled for security reasons, the "SSL Certificate" sensor won't be able to do it's check on basic URL such as "https://www.mysitetomonitor.com" ; Error "Failed to establish secure connection [Step 0] Socket Error # 10060 Connection timed out." will happen logically. A complete URL needs to be used with all the complete path to the existing path on the web server such as "https://www.mysitetomonitor.com/download/myfile.zip".

Currently, a specific URL cannot be set on the "SSL Certificate" to do this check.

Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 : forcing a specific URL in sensor's advanced settings in order not to get the error "Failed to establish secure connection [Step 0] Socket Error # 10060 Connection timed out."
