The TCP/IP monitor determines the status of a TCP/IP service that either does not appear in the list of standard services or uses a non-standard port.
Provide a unique name and description for the monitor, then configure the following:
- . Select the network type for the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) service is TCP; the network type for the RADIUS (Remote Authentication and Dial-In User Service) service is UDP; the HTTPS monitor uses the SSL type.
- . Enter the TCP or UDP port that you want to monitor.
- . Enter the length of time WhatsUp Gold attempts to connect to the selected device. When the specified time is exceeded without connecting, a timeout occurs and WhatsUp Gold stops trying to connect to the server. This is considered a failed connection.
- . Enter your script using as many Send, Expect, SimpleExpect, and Flow Control keywords as you would like. For more information, see Script Syntax.
- . Enable this option to have the monitor appear in Device Properties. If enabled, clicking from the device management actions menu within the Device Properties interface adds the monitor to the selected device if the applicable protocol or service is active on that device.
Click to open the Rules Expression editor if desired. Any text placed in the Expression box appends to the end of the script as an Expect expression.
