[smokeping-users] TCPping Probe not alerting

I have been using smokeping fine for the last few years using the fping probe and had no issues at all.
Now I'm using the TCPping Probe I'm having trouble getting SmokePing to alert when hosts are un-reachable or high packet loss.
Below is some of my config and replaced sensitive information with x's.

Example from Alerts file.

*** Alerts ***
to = xxxxx at xxxxx.com,
from = xxxxx at xxxxx.com

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = >0%,>0%,>0%,>0%,>0%
comment = !!!!!!URGENT!!!!!!

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = >0%,*12*,>0%,*12*,>0%
comment = loss 3 times  in a row

type = loss
# in percent
pattern = ==S,>0%,>0%,>0%
comment = loss at startup

type = rtt
# in milli seconds
pattern = <10,<10,<10,<10,<10,<100,>100,>100,>100
comment = routing messed up again ?

Example from Target file.

+ xxx-xx
menu = xxx-xx
title = xxxxxx.xxxxx

++ xx- xx-1
menu = xxx-xx-x
probe = TCPPing
alerts = bigloss
title = TCP-Over-443-To-x.x.x.x
host = x.x.x.x
pings = 5
port = 443

Please can someone help or guide me in what I am doing wrong, the aim is to get the alert to trigger when un-reachable or very high loss is seen.

Kind Regards
