you'll need to specify one RemoteFPing instance for each
remote host you're ssh'ing to.

Something like this (untested):

*** Probes ***

binary = /usr/bin/ssh # mandatory
rbinary = /usr/sbin/fping # mandatory

rhost = # mandatory

rhost = # mandatory

*** Targets ***
probe = RemoteFPingFromHost1 # or whatever

menu = Top
title = Network Latency Grapher
remark = Welcome to the SmokePing Site of Internet Primus.

+ targetfromhost1
probe = RemoteFPingFromHost1
host = target1.example.com

+ targetfromhost2
probe = RemoteFPingFromHost2
host = target1.example.com

See also the smokeping_examples document, Example 3:
config.fping-instances for an example of several instances of the
same probe.
