Hi there,

PRTG just stores numerical values. What you can do is to use the SNMP Custom String Sensor to display the IP address in the message field of PRTG.

But I need to add other OIDs, this sensor only allowed me to add just 1 OID.

Hello there,

The string sensor indeed just supports one OID and the sensor message also provides information of one OID. Anything else would need to be handled in a custom sensor. Maybe with a tool using the NETSNMP executable.
