Dear  All
I run MRTG on an NT-Server. I'd like to run an external Perl script
after the Target command.
If I execute the  external Perl script for itslef it delivers the right
values on the screen.
Something seems to be wrong together with the Target subroutine inside
the MRTG script.
My command shows like the following:
Target[SIS_GW_bsk_active_channels]: `C:/perl/bin/perl
Target[SIS_GW_bsk_active_channels]: `C:\perl\bin\perl
On  the  page:
Is it true, that in:
*	Target[RIGHT]: `/path/to/interpreter /path/to/myscript`    (for
there are used / and not \ (back slashes) ?
Who can give me some advice?
Thanks for your help and kind regards
