Hi All,

I'm looking at using Nagios for network monitoring of sites that are not connected to the internet for security reasons. I have heard that it is posible to send alerts via a mobile phone connected to a server using serial. Has anybody achieved using an Australian carrier.

Servers are running windows 2008 std 64bit.

I'm looking for a step by step guide if possible.

Regards,

We did this with a linux server and a nokia phone years ago - and I believe the instructions were in the Nagios documentation.

Then phones stopped supporting serial cables... and we started using a data card in the server instead, and it was more stable since we were no longer dependent on a phone battery - since those die after being on the charger for a year or so.

Nowadays I suspect you best option is to go for a "USB data modem" and to dig up some script that sends an SMS.
