is my http monitor correct?




Ok, here it goes:



A user wants me to monitor a login page. If the login page is available then mark the pool member up. If the page is not found then mark the pool member down. The URL of the login page is:



I created a monitor with the following:


1. Send String: GET /Login/Login HTTP/1.1\r\n\Host:\r\nAccept-Encoding:\r\nConnection: close\r\n\r\n


2. Properties of monitor are: All Addresses, All Ports


3. The "type" of monitor is HTTPS


4. No username or password is required (no authentication required)



When I enable the monitor on the appropriate pool the monitor fails. So:



1. Is my code wrong?


2. Could the page be unavailable? (user says page is available)



Thank you for any help!!!
