Hello there,
thank you for your KB-Post.

I encourage you to first of all log-on the PRTG Host/Server and attempt to reach the monitored address in a browser to see how that goes. This would also confirm the false positive and we'll have something to investigate.

Best Regards,
Luciano Lingnau [Paessler Support]
