HTTPS and HTTP Advance sensor



Tried to setup a HTTP sensor on a remote probe to monitor the loading time of a web page using HTTPS without using a proxy server, but it always fail. In the log, the message said "No Response (-1) (code: PE105). However, if I try to load the same web page in Internet Explorer on the probe PC, the page is loaded correctly. So it is not a connectivity or access issue. Is there any issue using HTTPS with the HTTP Advance sensor?

yes, we test it under the same scenario.

The only possible reason then would be that the target webserver does not accept PRTGs HTTP-Requests due to the user-agent of PRTGs HTTP Sensors (or that the requests are blocked due to the user-agent by a firewall or similar).
