remote probe source ip



Want this feature implemented, too? Please upvote by clicking Thumbs up!

User story

As a PRTG user, I want to be able to add source ip for the ping sensor/device... on the remote probe. For example I need ping to but i want to be able to specify the source IP if I have two IPs on the server: example: x.x.x.x source ip -> destination y.y.y.y source ip -> destination

Details of user story

We have two Internet service providers in our network and I want to be able to monitor the same destination simultaneously through both ISPs using ping. In order to be able to do that I need the remote probe to send pings to the same destination using different source IPs.
