Monitoring server ports

You can monitor server ports to view data sent and received over the ports of the server. Using the Properties page of a server, you can select from a list of the available types of server ports to monitor. Examples of types of server ports you can monitor are Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), the administrative port of the server, proxy and many other vendor-specific ports.

  • Start the server you want to monitor.
To define the ports you want to monitor, complete the following steps:
  1. In the Servers view, right-click a server and select Properties > Monitoring .
  2. To add a port for monitoring the server, complete the following steps:
    1. Click the Add button.
    2. The Monitoring Ports dialog box opens that displays a list of available server ports that you can monitor. In this list, select the server port that you want to monitor.
    3. In the Monitor port, specify a unique port number on your local machine for monitoring purpose. By default this field is completed with a number where its value is the assigned port number with an increment of one.
    4. In the Type drop-down list, select the content type you want to monitor. If you select All, you are going to monitor all data sent and received on the server port you have selected. If there are other options available in this drop-down list, you can filter the type of data you want to monitor.
    5. Click OK.
  3. Use the Start and Stop buttons to manage the server ports. The Monitor Port table lists the available port monitoring servers. You can add, edit, remove, start or stop the available port monitoring servers from the Monitor Port table. The Status column shows if the port monitoring server is started or stopped. The Type column shows the protocol of the server port you are monitoring. The Server Port column shows the port number the port is running on the server. The Monitor Port column shows the port number you are using monitoring purpose. The Content type shows the type of data being sent and received over the server port.
  4. Click Apply and then OK to save your changes.
When you run the application on the server, the data is going to display in the TCP/IP Monitor view.
