Modbus TCP Sensor Register Max Number



I would like to add sensors with Modbus registers greater than 9999, I have several applications where this would be necessary. Is this possible?

Also, if you could squeak in one more channel, six total, into a Modbus sensor, that would be highly useful. Is this also possible?

With PRTG v20.4.64.1402, we increased the range for register addresses among other stuff. Could you please update and see if you can add the other ones? In regards to the amount of channels, we're planning to increase those to 10 per Sensor with an update scheduled for next year :)
