Remote probe in DMZ



We would like to have the core server in the company LAN but we would like at the same time to be able to monitor some servers actually located in DMZ. There is now way to open a flow from DMZ to LAN. Absolutely forbidden. Is there a way to configure the system in order to have the core server to pool the remote probe and not the remote probe to push to the remote server the data? Thanks Marcello

No, we do not support this capability. The remote probe and core server need bi-directional communication.

Your best bet might be to install a freeware version of PRTG in the DMZ, and use it to monitor your devices.
