The Telnet monitor checks for a Telnet server on port 23. If no telnet service responds on this port, then the service is considered Down.
Provide a unique name and description for the monitor, then configure the following:
- . 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.
- . 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.
