User Story

As a PRTG User, I want the ability to add a probe to a probe

Details of User Story

Sometimes I have an isolated network by design and it is only reachable indirectly to the outside. If my PRTG server is on the outside, I need to connect two probes together to forward sensor data back to the PRTG server. This is especially important for industrial IOT applications. Splunk has this capability with forwarders, why not PRTG?

Acceptance criteria

Probe can forward attached sensor data back to the PRTG server through another probe

current probe -> prtg

desired probe -> probe -> prtg or probe -> n probes -> probe -> prtg
