Unread post Server Down Notification
Does anyone know of a good program / app that monitors the TWGS server and sends a text message when the server goes offline.
I use port forwarding in my router to point all telnet traffic to my server and typically this is where my failure occurs. All it take is for the power to flash off for few seconds and the router resets losing all port forwarding. Usually my first indication is when I start getting emails telling me they can't connect.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Z

Hook a UPS up to the router OR write a simple script that connects to the server and if it fails 2 times back to back send an email.

That same function of emailing you can specify the email to be addressed to your cell phone carrier and have it converted and sent to your phone via a txt.
