DNS Blacklist Check

Check um zu Überprüfen ob ein Mailserver auf einer Blacklist ist. Der Check lässt sich auch in Check_MK einbinden, dazu das Script in ~/local/lib/nagios/plugins/ ablegen und eine Regel „Classical active and passive Monitoring checks“ für den Mailserver erstellen. Eine native Check_MK Implementierung folgt noch 😉

1 Gedanke zu „DNS Blacklist Check“

  1. This seems like a great tool for checking RBL. I am looking for a solution that is not related to a agent based check. Is your check able to be used in this method? I am using check_mk 1.4.0p23
    1. Have the host check performed by TCP via the Public IP. (already working).
    2. Have the host check if it is on a RBL via the same Public IP.
    All of this would need to be accomplished without Agent or SNMP.
    Thanks, Greg
