Scripted TCP/IP Custom Network Alerting Action
This component can be used as both a monitoring entry as well as an alerting action which means that TCP accessible devices which accept telnet or raw TCP connections to perform certain actions can be access and scripted as an alerting action.
 
The IPSentry Scripted TCP/IP Network Monitoring enhances the basic TCP 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 Network Monitor (and alert) add-in, you can extend this to complete an entire session and test all aspects of an RFC compliant or proprietary TCP system.
 
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 implementations which may require non-standards based inputs and outputs, proprietary TCP devices, and any other area where a simple Send and Receive dialogue of TCP is required.
 
An example of this type of use might be communicating via telnet session to a local device such as a router to perform a soft reset via system command after login by simply defining the host to which you will connect, port number, and then the scripted dialogue of Send/Wait commands.
 
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 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 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. This add-in is not for the faint of heart but that's hardly worth mentioning because neither is running and maintaining an IT infrastructure...
