Hello Henrik,

Thank you for your message.

With PRTG, you can send SMS by executing HTTP request to an online provider (ex: BulkSMS) or locally to an SMS gateway (ex: SMSEagle) installed within your infrastructure. Please, note that the SMS can only be sent from the Core server. It is not possible to trigger them from a remote probe.

Here are some documentation (article and video) which provide examples and explanation about how it works: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/393-how-can-i-send-sms-text-message-notifications-via-a-modem-or-a-mobile-phone-with-prtg https://blog.paessler.com/sending-prtg-sms-notifications https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK2qY7CgV08

If you have questions, do not hesitate.

Regards, Florian
