  • Dial up connection for email notification

    Hello Centreon Community,

    I landed here goggling for nagios forum, i couldn't find any oficial nagios forum.

    But I'm glad I've cliqued this link, Centron looks really good and I look forward to testing it, just one detail that is makes me consider implementing nagios or not that is:

    Problem: Nagios server will be in the same room of the machines I want to monitor, so if my internet connection gets lazy or if somebody cuts the cable I can't receive mail notifications.

    Theorical solution: After thinking in this problem I realize i could use the fax modem I'm using in the nix server that I'm using as faxserver (btw hylafax + avantfax = really good sh*t) to estabilish internet connection needed to send notifications.

    Technical solution: Monitor all machine with nagios + centron if there was a problem that needed notification, a dialup connection using a 56k modem thought a analog line will be established and then the e-mail is sent.

    So what you think is this scenario possible to accomplish with nagios?

    Thanks in advance, cheers!
