It is possible having two PRTG 100 free sensor servers inside a network?




In my scenario, I already have a PRTG 100 free sensors installed on one server. We purchased a surveillance system with 35 IP cameras and we want to monitor that too. It is possible installing another PRTG on different server and benefit of 100 free sensors?

Thank you in advance!

Hey micula,

thanks for your posting.

Feel free to activate a second free license on the second server. However, it is not possible to use the same license on two servers and each uses 50 free sensors only.

Regarding your surveillance system, I recommend to refer to the links below which address this topic:

So I can have as many free license as I want?

If i install the free PRTG on five servers I can use 500 devices for free?

Thank you!

Hi micula,

It's not really what we want you to do, but we can not prevent you from doing so.
