PRTG hosted by Paessler automatically creates a hosted probe that runs on the hosted instance. It shows several health values of the instance and you can instantly monitor all servers, services, and devices that are publicly available via the internet with the hosted probe. See also section Architecture and User Interfaces—Probes.
A Paessler employee guides you through the Smart Setup. In particular, you have to install a remote probe, which is required for monitoring your LAN. We strongly recommend that you follow the instructions.
