Can an EXE/Script Advanced be executed as a remote server



Hi I have compiled a power shell script to check a website status. The website that I want to check is white listing the remote server but the PRTG server in not and it`s given me this error unable to connect to the remote server. There is a way how to run the script that is located on the PRTG server to be run on the remote server that is white listed?

The only way to accomplish this would be to install a Remote Probe on the white listed server.

Once you install the remote probe on this server, you can add this same sensor to the remote probe, and it will execute from the white listed remote probe.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
