Is it possible to make a chain for monitor remote network



Hello! I have just installed PRTG in my network. But I have question about chaining. Example below. I have server (called SERVER1) with PRTG server in my network. I have ipsec tunnel to another network and server in that network (called SERVER2). In this case, I can monitor SERVER2 from SERVER1. Its okay. But I have the third server (called SERVER3). And SERVER3 I can access only from SERVER2, but not from SERVER1. And the question is - can I monitor SERVER3 from SERVER1 through SERVER2? Because its impossible to grant direct access from SERVER1 to SERVER3. Thanks in advance!

Hi Sergey,

Installing a remote probe on server 2 is the way to go here, if you want to monitor it completely :)

Kind regards,
