SiteScope, port monitor send string

Hi all!

Help me please

I received a request to monitor HELO reponses from 25 port various Exchange servers.
My thought was to use a SiteScope port monitor, point it to the SMTP port, and use the "Send String" field to issue a "HELO" request.


However, I found that the answer is a string, only a connection to the server, and the answer of my command is not.
How can I configure "Send String" and "Match string" to receive a response from the port

Re: SiteScope, port monitor send string

Hello Roman

Unfortunately, the monitor will always try to look for a string in response.

Maybe you can try with a script monitor and the telnet command instead. (As a workaround)
