I would like to know if I can use the new SSH sensors included in PRTG with my Linux or Mac OS distribution. On which systems have the sensors been tested? And what about the SNMP sensors for Linux?

Do I see this right, that WBEM over SSH for all systems is postponed to the next version (8.1)?

Hello, that might be a confusion here. PRTG 8 was release as initial version 8.1, so this is supported NOW.

ok, i feel a bit silly here, but i just don't know how to access an ubuntu server with WBEM. Does ubuntu 10.4 lts has WBEM built in? is there a package which needs to be installed? Could you please update the compatibility table, so that i can stop searching? ;)
