Ping sensor is down (want to show only warning)




I have PING sensors on some printers, but when ever someone turns them off they turn red and shows "Down" and i dont want to react to a printer that is turned off. So is there a way i can make it only turn yellow "warning" when destination host unreachable?

Please let me refer to this article here. Also there is a custom PING sensor from a third-party-supplier available (PingWarning.exe) that goes into a Warning status (instead of a Down status) if the device is down.
