The Echo Reply service is used on each of the installed WinSyslog. A central agent running the MonitorWare Agent is using the echo request and instructs to poll each of the other WinSyslog services. When the request is not carried out successfully, an alert is generated. The MonitorWare echo protocol ensures that always a fresh probe of the remote WinSyslog service is done.
MonitorWare Echo Reply Properties
Select the desired protocol type. IPv4 and IPv6 are available. The IPv6 protocol needs to be properly installed in order to be used. Note that one Service can only handle IPv4 or IPv6, so if you want to use both protocols, you will need to create two separate services.
Specify the listener port here.
The MonitorWare Echo Reply service can be bound to a specific IP Address. You can either use an IPv4, an IPv6 Address or a Hostname that resolves to an IPv4 or IPv6 Address. This feature is useful for multihome environments where you want to run different Syslog Servers on different IP Addresses. Please note that the default IP Address 0.0.0.0 means ANY IP Address.
