Remote probe service restarting frequently?



I have a remote probe running on an Amazon EC2 Windows 2008 R2 Std x32 instance. There is nothing else on the server. The remote probe starts and then shuts down 15 seconds later, over and over endlessly. On PRTG, the remote probe connects and uploads data but the device turns red and is shown as disconnected causing alarms.

Any ideas?

Best Regards.
