Monitoring UDP ports

Hi All,



I am trying to evaluate this software for my company, in doing so i have installed the Freeware version, (as it is likely to take me more than 15 days to correctly configure and test this site.



In doing so, i was unaware that it would disable my ability to run External program checks.



I was using a tool from M$ to scna UDP ports, portqry.exe, which worked well.



Since i can no long use this, does anyone have any ideas ho i might check if UDP ports are in a listening state without using externel programs? I need this feature to monitor Software Licensing services.



Cheers,

Leon

  • Perfect!!! Thank you so much for the quick and 100% effective solution Mr Administrator!!! ;)
  • Where should this appear?



    I thought it would be an option like TCP is. I am not seeing it though.
  • Not sure what you are actually asking AZChris,



    But we will start here:

    Create a new Monitoring rule and under "What do you wnat to monitor?" select:



    APM: Application performance & availability checks

    And then att he bottom of the list select:

    EXTERNAL: enables you to execute custom checks and be alerted on it.



    then you can monitor via whatever program you wish.
  • Hi Thanks for responding.



    The initial question was to monitor udp ports without using an external app. I thought maybe that was put into the the monitor options just like the TCP option. If i need to use an external app to monitor it, then I will go that route, as you have outlined.
  • Hey Chris,



    I think you will need to use the external tool...



    Good Luck ;)
