I need to post xml to a webpage to get a result. But I'm not allowed to enter the XML POST data, because it contains < and >.

Is there a way around this?

http post xml

Hi,
this is not possible in the actual stable version of PRTG. But in the preview release channel (which should become stable sometime this month) the restriction on POST data is removed.
Best regards

Hi again, sorry for spreading confusion. The fix did not make it into the preview version yet. It is only implemented in the canary version of PRTG.
Best regards
