Monitor IKEv1 VPN - Cisco IOS Router



Hi there,

Is it possible for me to monitor an IKEv1 VPN link on a Cisco iOS router? I want to monitor link status if it is up (like UP-ACTIVE) or if it goes down.

Device:: Cisco 2901 running iOS 15.0(1r)M16

The SNMP Cisco Asa VPN Connections Sensor might be what you're looking for:

Or did you already try that?

I'm getting a "No such object (SNMP error # 222)". Is there something I need to configure in PRTG? (like add MIBs) or something i missed configuring in the router side?

If SNMP is configured properly (i.e. when the SNMP Uptime Sensor is working), the VPN Sensor should work as well. You could give this alternative. Let me know if it worked!
