The FTP Server monitor can watch an FTP server on a monitored computer to ensure it is up and running. This is accomplished by connecting to the server, optionally using credentials that you supply.
Above you can see the configuration dialog that for configuring the Mail Server monitor. The mail server name is taken from the server that the monitor is attached to. The mail server type and optional username and password need to be entered. When the server type is selected, the standard port is entered for you, but you can also change it for non-standard configurations.
SSL connections (POPS, IMAPS and SMTPS) are supported. If you don't know which setting to use, select "Don't Know" and press the Test button. Each option will be tried and the one that works will be selected for you automatically.
The FTP Server can create reports based on the time to connect to the FTP server. This data can be charted as well as output in .CSV or HTML tabular form. In addition, you can define what 'up' means and create an uptime report showing a percentage of uptime over a given time period.
