Email forwarding - Total Access 908e (3rd Gen)


Is there a way to send a test message after you turn on the email forwarding utility?

I assume you're referring to the ability to send email as an event alert?

  • Create a loopback address (can be any private /32)
  • Probe it with a ping probe
  • Track the probe
  • Set up email if track or probe fails
  • Shut down the interface
  • Wait for mail

Probably, but not a more thorough way of making sure you'll get an actual email in the event of a failure and seeing what it reports.

Almost any changes to an interface will cause an alert thereby generating an email.

You can use a T1 loopback or plug the second Ethernet port into a switch,

If the ports are enabled both of these actions should generate an email.
