I have successfully install smokeping on my Ubuntu Karmic machine and am monitoring servers. I need to be able to monitor an IP address and a port, can someone tell me how I do that?

I looked into Smokeping::probes::TCPPing but I cannot find how to install TCPPing

Any help would be much appreciated

You can get tcpping from An alternative monitoring solution is etherape. It's in your ubuntu repository & is easy to use & gives the information you want.

Another alternative is nmap. Tere is a nice GUI for it: zenmap, which can create a network topology map. Both are in your repository.
