SNMP Trap of a device

  • Is there a way to setup pfsense or install a specific package to monitor an IP address and send a notification isf the device becomes unpingable?

    While you might be able to fake that using it as a gateway with a monitor + SMTP notifications, realistically that's not feasible. The firewall isn't a monitoring system, you'd be better served by setting up a small monitoring system separate from the firewall (even something light like smokeping) to keep an eye on things like that for you.
