Convert a trial copy to a remote probe.



Hello. I wanted to test monitoring some servers from one of our other offices. I understand that is what the remote probe is for, correct? I installed the trial version in order to test that I can actually monitor a few servers at our main office from one of our other offices. I would like to know if it is possible to convert this PC to a remote probe so I don't have to redo all the alerts and notifications again. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank You, Marc Lambert Network Engineer Anthony and Sylvan Pools

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm sorry, it's not possible to convert a full installation of PRTG (regardless of the license type) to a Remote Probe (and basically merge the configurations).

best regarss.
