ipSentry Network Monitoring Software

  ipSentry Monitoring Features -  Scripted TCP IP Monitor  

Scripted TCP Connection The ipSentry Scripted TCP/IP Monitor Add-In enhances the basic TCP/IP Network monitoring functionality by providing a scripted approach to send and receive requirements over an established TCP/IP connection.

In using the basic TCP Network monitoring functionality provided in the base ipSentry application, you are provided with the ability to connect, send some data and/or expect a specific amount of data. In contrast, when you utilize the Scripted TCP/IP Monitor (and alert) add-in, you can extend this to complete an entire session and test various aspects of an RFC compliant or proprietary TCP/IP protocol dialogue.

For example, the basic monitor will connect to an SMTP server and test to see if the appropriate SMTP response is received. With this add-in however, you can actually script out the entire sequence of events that are required to send an email message through the server.

The add-in is also very useful for proprietary TCP/IP implementations which may require non-standards based inputs and outputs, proprietary TCP/IP devices, and any other area where a simple Send and Receive dialogue of TCP/IP is required.

This component can be used as both a monitoring entry as well as an alerting action which means that TCP/IP accessible devices which accept telnet or raw TCP/IP connections to perform certain actions can be access and scripted as an alerting action.

Once again, this is for the power-user adding a lot more power than the basic TCP/IP network monitoring functionality in the ipSentry base application. This add-in expands on the simple Send/Receive functionality required to monitor most TCP/IP connections by allowing a full session dialogue. With this add-in, you can script logins to POP3 servers, send test or heartbeat SMTP messages, login to FTP servers, or virtually any other clear-text top based dialogue over a raw TCP/IP connection. We have included sample scripts to get you started for such items as POP3 login, SMTP test just up to the point of sending, and an FTP login and directory change.
