PRTG - Bounce a switchport via SNMP if an IP address is unreachable



Hello, I am looking to implement a port bounce (shutdown + no shutdown) if a particular IP is not reachable. So it's going to be Ping sensor and a script to bounce a port. How do I achieve that? Do you have such script examples?

script snmp switchport

Hi there,

Most scripts we have are listed here. Apart from that, maybe another user might have an idea and contribute something here.

Kind regards,

I couldn't find anything useful in the script database. Hopefully, someone already implemented something similar and can share the knowledge.
