Deploy remote probe to remote network



I would like to monitor a remote network, which I have permission to do so. The PRTG Core would be in AWS ( example) and I would deploy the PRTG remote probe to a remote network ( There are no VPN connections. I can open up ports on the AWS side and I can manually deploy the remote probe the remote network.

Is this possible and how? All documentation I see state remote probe needs to deployed on LAN. If not on LAN cluster needs to be enabled. However I do not need a cluster. Also cluster is disabled . Not to sure how I enable? Anycase, I need help please.

Hello there,

PRTG server and remote probes establish a secure connection using port 23560 to transmit sensor readings and exchange configuration details, so that's all you need to take care of, meaning that the remote probe is able to reach the core server's ip on port 23560, whether or not by VPN is up to you in the end.
