Hi Task,

carefully asking: did you check the SiteScope documentation?
It's all in there.

This is from the SiteScope 11.32 manual "Monitor Reference", Chapter 25: Directory Monitor,
..
Directory path Directory that you want to monitor.

- To monitor directories on a remote Windows server through NetBIOS, the path should
contain the name of the shared folder for remote NetBIOS servers. You can also
specify an absolute path of the directory on the remote machine without specifying the
server name. For example, if you type c:\test, the remote directory is accessed as
\\Server\C$\test.

- To monitor a directory on a remote Windows SSH machine, the path must be relative
to the home directory of the user account used to log on to the remote machine.

- To monitor a directory on remote UNIX machines, the path must be relative to the
home directory of the UNIX user account used to log on to the remote machine. You
must also select the corresponding remote UNIX server in the Servers box described
above. For details on which UNIX user account to use for the applicable remote
server, see Configuring SiteScope to Monitor Remote Windows Servers in the Using
SiteScope Guide.

To monitor a directory that is created automatically by some application and the directory
path includes date or time information, you can use SiteScope's special data and time
substitution variables in the path of the directory. For details, see SiteScope Date
Variables in the Using SiteScope Guide.
..

So all you need to find out is what server your directory, if it is not the SiteScope server itself,
and the path to the FTP directory, which for example on one of my Windows boxes is
C:\inetpub\ftproot

So in my case the monitor setup would look like the screenshot below:

sov02bac19 is the Windows server running SiteScope 11.32

sov02bac16 is the server with the FTP directory

C:\inetpub\ftproot is the FTP directory on sov02bac16

As you can see, the monitor checks whether or not the directory exists, access is permitted, the number of files and its size,
and fair enough, this matches the reality 😉
