Support for Amazon CloudWatch behind Proxy?



It's great that PRTG has developed the sensor for Amazon CloudWatch, but I did not see any option to use proxy server for the cloudwatch sensor.

Basically we have to use a proxy server for all network communication and so even for using PRTG for cloudwatch, we have to go through the proxy, but the current cloudwatch sensor does not provide an option to fill in the details of the proxy server details.

Proxy settings for the cloud watch sensor are not yet available, sorry.

We might add global proxy settings in the future.
