Can a remote probe ping other devices?



I have 3 sites. 1 site has the server core. The other 2 sites have a remote probe in each one. Can a remote probe ping other devices or another remote probe? The is so I can tell the latency and packet loss between the 2 remote sites.

yes a Remote Probe can ping other devices (just add them as a new device under the probe). Between Probes you can also use the QoS-Sensor to monitor the quality of a connection.

best regards.
