HTTP Push Sensor ports



Is there a way to use the new HTTP Push Sensor over port 80 or 443? Our firewall blocks other ports. Would like to avoid needing to open up ports if we don't need to.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. Both ports, 80 and 443, should work. Did you encounter any errors with this?

best regards.

If we setup a HTTP Push Data sensor using a port such as 5050, then this works:


But if we use ports 80/443


Then we receive a File or Directory not found message.

The GUI lets is put in the port 80 or 443.

It seems the ports are then blocked / used by another webserver on this machine. Please check. If this is the Local Probe, it might very well be the PRTG Webserver of course.
