either use this


or simply reinstall your PC, install remote probe and connect to server, move sensors from the old probe to the new one. Then you can delete the old probe from the configuration.

PS: if you are using the same IP for the reinstalled PC, make sure to delete the IP from the denied probe IP list, after you deleted the old probe from the configuration.
