Hi,

i would like to monitor the network type of our servers. All servers should have a "domain network" connection, but sometimes they start in "public" or "private" networks which leads to a couple of problems.

Is there any way to monitor this? Im currently monitoring the NLA service, but i havent found out any way to alert me, if a server boots into the wrong network type.

i would be very happy to find a solution to monitor the network connection type of our servers!

connection domain network nla private public type windows

Hi there,

None of the default sensors does cover this, but maybe someone has an idea for a custom sensor that might be able to do this.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Have you considered removing the "public" and "private" network profiles from these servers?

  • Go to Run –> regedit
  • Go to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE –> SOFTWARE –> Microsoft –> Windows NT –> CurrentVersion –> NetworkList –> Profiles
  • Under the Profiles key, you will find some sub-keys with different GUIDs. This corresponds to the no. of network profiles you’re using with your computer.
  • Select each sub-key of the Profiles and look for the ProfileName key in the right hand pane. This will give you the name and network type of the network.
  • The Category DWORD value in the right hand pane holds the network type of that particular network profile. Value data can be 0 for Public network, 1 for Private network and 2 for Domain network.

Please always use regedit with caution and make sure to backup your registry section before editing !!
