Will switching from "Local Probe only" to "All IPs available on this computer" under probe settings



I am trying to setup a Remote probe for one server as we are facing issues in trying to monitor it with the current setup. While doing so, PRTG asks me to switch the probe connection to "All IPs available on this computer". I would like to know if there will be any impact to the existing server and sensor configurations.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Satnar,

This is just for the probe to core connection. This will not only allow the local probe to connect, but also remote probes from different IPs. It does not affect the existing configuration of the sensors located on the local probe.

Kind regards,
