Wanted to ask if the mini probes can be used on RHEL based distributions?

I know the requirements say that it requires Debian base distributions , I'm just wondering if it can be configured in such a way to work on Centos for example?

centos miniprobe prtg

Hi,
the miniprobe will run on CentOS or any RHEL. You only would have to make sure installing the according packages for python-dev (should be python-devel) and build-essential (I'm not aware of any package here). Additionally, you would have to take care of the init script yourself to make the probe start during startup.
Best regards

yum install gcc gcc-c++ make openssl-devel

Will get you the equivalent of apt-get install build-essential
