We have added more ways to customise how your sensor tests networks, services and applications. All the changes are found in the advanced edit or add network screens.
These improvements offer solutions to complexity and provide better context for your network testing. These are some of the changes we are introducing;
DNS lookup domain
You can now specify your own domain to test DNS resolution against your network configuration on the dashboard.

Older firewalls (or old firewall rules) will drop DNS packets with EDNS extensions

Force ICMP ping & TCP ping
If you have enabled a proxy on your network, the sensor will by default not attempt to run ICMP ping or TCP ping tests. You can now override this behaviour.
