monitoring more than one ip



Hello everyone, my network monitoring with PRTG every day earns more hits. but still there are something that I have to fit. so go ahead...

it's possible do monitoring a router cisco by two ip address it ? for exemplo, these router cisco has two Interfaces Wan each one with a ISP MPLS. from my PRTG machine I can reach it for two wan IPs but when I go to add a device in PRTG there is only a field for that device ip address. so when that wan go to down the PRTG show all interfaces are down too. but is a false information because the PRTG is doing gets snmp only in an wan Interface that is down. I wish the PRTG does gets snmp in more than one ip adress.

how can I reach this ?

add the device a second time and use the other IP address.

I think this issue can to be treated in the next version. should be good if there should be more than one field for IP address when add a device.
