Hi Christian,

I had similar issue, make sure you have installed packed called tcptraceroute/traceroute(that’s solved my issue) on the box that you are running smokeping instance from. I am 100% sure that’s the issue.

Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install tcptraceroute

Also, have you tried running smokeping in debug mode? It could shed some light.

(Sorry if it's been asked, but google search didn't clearly explain how to resolve this =()

I'm trying to implement a probe using TCPPing
I have the script working along with tcptraceroute (i.e. works via CLI fine)

however, smokeping isn't generating any data against the target host,
and from debug allI see is the following:

TCPPing: forks 5, timeout for each target 301
TCPPing: Executing /usr/sbin/tcpping -C -x 20 host.somewhere.com<http://host.somewhere.com> 443
TCPPing: Received: GLOB(0x2e388e8)
TCPPing:  host.somewhere.com<http://host.somewhere.com>: got
(Nothing else afterwards related to TCPPing, just FPING targets and related results)

I tried to search on " TCPPing: Received: GLOB(0x2e388e8)"
which got me this: https://github.com/oetiker/SmokePing/issues/60
but I'm not sure if I'm missing something...

my Probe definition:

+ TCPPing

binary = /usr/sbin/tcpping
forks = 5
step = 300
offset = 50%
timeout = 15

my Target definition:

probe = TCPPing
menu = zoom
title =  host.somewhere.com<http://host.somewhere.com>
host =  host.somewhere.com<http://host.somewhere.com>
port = 443

Pls help,
