Installation: This software does not require installation. Simply download the .ZIP file, unzip to a local drive and you are good to go. Configuration: Host configuration: Edit the config.xml file. Add your hosts in tags. You can add as many tags as you like. If you are monitoring a web site, you must specify http or https. For example, http://www.google.co.uk. If you are adding a local server, do not add http, just the pingable host name. For example, file.domain.local or just file if your DNS can resolve it to an IP.
