Hi,

 

I know it's possible to monitor TCP/IP Telnet (23 port), however what about SSH (22 port)?

Is it possible? This protocol is very important to us for monitoring our devices.

I've tried to change the port from 23 to 22, it doesn't work.

 

Thanks,

Hello,

 

Yes, the TCP/IP monitor will work if you enter a custom value. Note, however, that for the remote tcp port 22 check to work, you need to have the remote device or an application listening on this port. Have you tried checking the port by any other means?

Hi and thanks for the response and help.

 

Indeed, I have checked and I can open a SSH communication with the device, for example from Putty or from another server.

 

Just the test from TNM is failed :(

 

Again, I'm modifying the Telnet probe's port from 23 to 22.

 

Thanks,

You need to check the SSH port using the TCP/IP sensor, not the Telnet sensor. Please clarify which one you're using.

I've succeeded now! :)

I thought there no option to give 22 port in TCP/IP sensor, since I was writing 'ssh (22)', same pattern as appears initially such as 'Telnet (23)'.

The right option is to write just the port number: '22'.

Now it's fine.

 

Thanks a lot for directing me to the solution!
