Hi,
you might use the HTTP Advanced Sensor and point the same directly to the file which should be downloaded.
IMPORTANT: Doing this will cause PRTG to download the file at every sensor scan which might lead to excessive bandwidth usage!!!
Therefore I want to recommend choosing at least 30 min as scanning interval.
Best regards

Hi,
no, this is not possible because the sensor is not really built for monitoring downloads. Sorry.
You might also use a EXE\Script sensor and wget to achieve the same.
There you will have to write a script which calls wget and then use the output values and deliver them back to PRTG.
Best regards
