TCP port scan to a remote server




I have a sever with a PRTG probe installed but want to check if a TCP port is open on another server in the same LAN. To clarify, I want to confirm network connectivity between the server running the probe and another server. The Port Sensor only allows me to check the TCP ports on the server with the probe installed.

Any feedback would be great.

Dear degeezz,

the port sensor is run by the probe, but checks the port of the parent device.
