Remote probe autoupdate



Hello, When the PRTG server is updated, the remote probes are automatically updated. Is the update pushed from our server, or does the remote probe download the update directly from PRTG servers? Thank you

Thanks, We means that is the PRTG server is behing a slow upload internet line, it may be more efficient to update manually by connecting to the remote server.
