Custom EXE/script sensor




I have a Custom EXE/script sensor which should check zen.spamhaus.org if my ip has been blocked but I get alert emails where the IP is always which is not the same IP which I put in the parameters.

Is my Sensor not configurated rightly does it not work ?

Hello Richard,

Thank you for your message.

Regarding the response you get, it seems to be one of the return codes from Spamhaus. Therefore, I invite you to have a look to their FAQ: https://www.spamhaus.org/faq/section/DNSBL%20Usage#200

You will find more information about how to check an IP address in the section Can the Spamhaus DNSBL be used on a web server or other applications? of the FAQ.
