Integrate NotePage Pro with IPmonitor

I have searched these forums for this answer.  I have IPMonitor installed, and have installed Notepage Pro as well.  I have a paging subscription with AT&T and have successfully sent a test message to my cell phone from within NotePage Pro.

I cannot figure out how to integrate NotePage Pro with IPMonitor.  I originally set up an external process as an alert with the following:

Executable Name: NPP.exe

Directory:  C:\Program Files\NotePager Pro

Startup Directory:  C:\Program Files\NotePager Pro

No credentials used.

When I try to perform a "Force Test" from within IPMonitor, I get the following error:

The remote device timed out before sending a response.

This has been resolved by adding /minimized to the command line parameters. 

As Notepager was running in trial mode, npp.exe was triggering a registration splash screen which prevented npp.exe from exiting.

Have you tried using an ipMonitor credential that has "May be used with Windows Impersonation to start an external process" enabled?

Also verify you have the correct failure command line configured.  The shortname represents the recipient you have configured within NotePager Pro. Sender is a word of your choosing.

<short name> <sender> <message>

For example I have used the following in the past:

Matt ipMonitor %monitorname% %monitorstatus%

Hope this helps!

I have entered a valid credential and I did enter the failure command line as you mentioned.  I did a force test and it said it was successful, however I never got the test SMS on my mobile phone.  Any ideas?

Have you tried running npp.exe from the command line with the same parameters? If that works then I would suggest opening a support case on this so we can help you troubleshoot this offline.

I don't know how to do that. I know how to use the command line but not with those parameters.

If I change npp.exe to nppdial.exe, it will start the dialer, so it's sending the command. For some reason it's not communicating with nppdial.exe or somthing in between is happening.

npp.exe is the correct exe.


You could try something like:

Npp.exe <recipient short name> ipMonitor this is a test message

The most important thing is the recipient and the sender being one word without spaces.  Everything after that should be considered to be the message.

I ran the test message in the command line and received it via text on my what?  Thanks for your help so far!
