Hi,

if I add a syslog receiver sensor, so it works without problems.

After the restart I get an error: Could not open port 514 (code: PE245)(Could not bind socket. Address and port are already in use.)

if I add a sensor again, it works without problems.

port prtg syslog

Any other syslog tools running on the PRTG server that is not PRTG? Like KiWi Syslog Server?

No other software, only PRTG core and probe.

Probably it's simply because the port is still bound by windows internally, hence PRTG can't occupy it.
netstat -anob should reveal what process it is - probably the PRTG Probe.exe. The sensor should work after a few minutes, can you verify that? Does a restart of the probe service also solve the issue?

I find only this.

C:\Windows\system32>netstat -anp udp | find ":514" UDP 0.0.0.0:514 *:*

C:\Windows\system32>netstat -anp tcp | find ":514"

C:\Windows\system32>

If I restart probe service, error still persist.

Hm, interesting. Could you try a different port for testing purposes?
