Netflow Cisco Router



We want to monitor our Cisco routers with NetFlow. The routers will send the data from different locations to our main prtg server over WAN. It is possible to display the sensor below the remote probe of the location or only below the main server? We get our routers preconfigured and it would be a lot easier with one ip adress for the netflow configuration.

If you send the flow data to the IP of the main server/local probe, then you can only place the netflow sensors somewhere under that probe.

If you need them under the remote probe, you need to configure the devices to send the flows to the remote probe IP.
