Hello there,

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do (running ping and checking a port at the same time?) Please find here more about creating custom sensors of your own.

Kind regards,

Erhard

Hello Erhard, Thanks for your reply. The Scenario is on the firewall there are tow Ethernet ports act as a WAN each one connected to the internet with a different ISP. I am able to monitor those Ethernet ports if they are up or down but I need to be able to monitor those ports if the internet connection up or down not just the port.

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

Hm, the issue with this is that there is no sensor that can be set to use one particular interface of your WAN ports for like checking if it reaches google.com for example. I'm not sure if this can be done at all by a script in some way that sort of "routes" a query so that it is using a particular WAN port, I'm afraid. If someone else has an idea, we would be glad to hear about it :)

Alternatively, maybe the device has something in its SNMP implementation that reports back if the outward connection is indeed up and running, but this would be something to ask Sophos.

Kind regards,

Erhard
