Can you use the sensor through one server to monitor another?



One of out thrid party suppliers has a server that we can get to through our own server. I need to be able to ping the third party server via our own server. Only this server has access to the third party server, due to firewall restrictions.

So I was wondering if PRTG can route a sensor through a server onto the Third party server, to show it it working.

Is this possible and if so, how do you do it?

Many thanks Mark

you could use a remote probe on your second server that can see the third party server.
