User Story

As a PRTG User, I want to monitor the syslog of newer Ricoh multi function printers like Model "Ricoh IM C2000"

Details of User Story

This generation of Ricoh machines now finally support to send the syslog information to an other device in the network, linke PRTG. But they only support "Syslog over TLS" (RFC5425). So with normal syslog sensor in PRTG its not possible to get it running. I could test it successful with the beta command line service at [1]

Acceptance criteria

  • PRTG provides syslog support for "Syslog over TLS" (RFC5425) - either as extension of existing syslog sensor or as new sensor
  • PRTG supports the adminstrator to handle the quite tricy certificate configuration for TLS
