Argus Test Port

In order to remotely check that Argus is properly running, you can enable the test server on a TCP port. in your argus.conf, add:

        test_port:      3074

You should pick a port number that is not currently in use on the server argus is running on.

You can then check on it by telneting to the test port:

        telnet 3074

        Connected to
        Escape character is '^]'.
        Argus running
        Connection closed by foreign host.

Or, you can configure a ‘Service’ monitor on another Argus:

        Service TCP/Argus {
                port:           3074
