Launch Multiple Probe Services On One Machine



I would like to be able to launch multiple instances of PRTG Probe.exe on a single machine. The machine is more than capable of handling this. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. Thanks!

Hallo, to run more than one instance of prtg probe.exe on one machine is not possible.

You could run VMware server on the machine and run several VMs. In these, you could have a remote probe each.
