Discussion Topic: Enhancement: Ability to port probe from SmartStruxure Server
I wish there was an ability to port probe from an Automation Server to see if a device was responding on a certain port at a certain IP address.
Old school tools used for this would be ping or telnet, but some devices don't respond to ping commands. Sometimes I want to know a device is listing on port 502, 587, 1628, 1629, 47808, 443,80 (or 8080), 7, 25. If you know these ports then you know the reasons why this would be helpful.Just because 3rd device can communication with first two, it does not mean the 2 can communicate between themselves. Sometimes I want to know a port is closed, like SSH disabled on an AS for cybersecurity from another AS or ES I could probe 443,4444 to prove connection and probe 22 to make sure I get no response.
