Hi Sorin,

Thinking about your requirement to monitor without opening the firewall, did
you know about the PHP proxy script called monit.php in the "contrib"
directory to the monit distribution? 

The script will give you a secure way to see that monit is running if you
already have a web-server running on the server. It works through
the standard web-server (i.e. port 80), and doesn't require a separate port
open on the firewall. You can protect it using Apache authentication.

Another alternative is the "wap.php" script in the contrib directory. This
works in a similar way, but lets you see what monit is doing from your mobile

Neither gives the heartbeat message, but you can check them any time you like.
