Can I connect a 3rd party monitoring tool to an OmniBridge?

"Can I connect a 3rd party monitoring tool to an OmniBridge ?" (i.e. Netflow, SNMP, ssh, or similar?).

OmniBridges are NOT accessible to 3rd party systems at this time.  As a security-first approach, we currently prevent direct access to ensure that no additional attack vectors or security holes are opened up.

Other reasons include: avoiding instability due to 3rd party interfacing, system changes, or other potentially service disrupting access that could be made to the setup, functionality, or normal load they are tested for, which could in turn cause connectivity issues and instability to the services.

Many Partners decide to connect monitoring tools on the LAN side as an added layer of security, such as Security Onion, RMM, AV, etc.


A ping check can be enabled by utilizing a Port Forward with ICMP to the OmniBridge's LAN IP address on a Zone, or internal server.
