How can I setup PRTG with dual NICs? I'd like one nic on network that most PC's are on to access via the web and another nic setup on a totally different network with seperate IP structure that the network infractructure I'd like to monitor are on.

For example

NIC 1 is on 192.168.1.x network with servers,PCs, etc

NIC 2 is on 10.100.0.x network where all the switches, APs, radios

dual-nic installation setup

Isn't this just working when you set it up? It shouldn't be something that depends on PRTG, Windows takes care of that.

Hello There,

Yes that's right @michel. If I understand this correctly, by default both network card will appear in PRTG Administration tools so there is no specific settings required in PRTG.

I just realized that this probably requires you to set the 'Outgoing IP for Monitoring Requests' to be set to 'Auto' in the 'PRTG Administration Tool' under the 'Probe Settings for Monitoring' tab. It's set to Auto by default so unless you changed it, it should just work.
