Can we please get a remote probe installer version for Mac OS X



We are installing many mac mini computers at remote locations and would be delighted to be able to monitor those networks without having to install an additional PC.

PRTG's core server and the probes run on Windows only. So we can't offer you a mac installer.

We have seen customers running the probe on Linux using the Wine Windows emulator system, but this is not officially supported.

We may be able to offer a linux/OSX based probe later, though, but I can not make a statement about the timing.

I would also love to see Mac OS X and Linux versions available for the core and remote probes. Thanks.

Any chance that we'll see an OSX remote probe version?

Hi Brian,

Currently there are no plans for a dedicated Mac OSX Probe. However you could check our Python Mini Probe to see if it feasible for you:

Best regards.
