Remote Probe Outgoing IP Setup



I have a server that I am installing a remote probe on. It has 2 NIC's, 1 with a private, non-routed address that the devices I want to monitor are on, and 1 with a public, routed address that will talk to the Core Server and everything else. When setting up the Remote Probe, it asks for: "Outgoing IP for monitoring requests". Is it talking about the requests from the sensor's of the devices I will be monitoring, or requests from the Core Server?

Outgoing IP for monitoring requests

is the one used for sending the requests to the devices that are to be monitored.
