PRTG Server Administrator

The "PRTG Server Administrator" can be started from the "PRTG Network Monitor" program group in the Start Menu. It is divided into eight tabs:

Web Server


Under the Web Server tab you can define the web server IP addresses. You can select to use local host only (which means that no external access will be possible. This is the most secure setting) or specify individual IPs from a list provided. You can further define the web server port to use. The options are:

  • Standard Web Server Port 80: This is the standard port used and recommended for most installations.
  • HTTPS/SSL on port 443: Website can only be used via secure SSL ("https://(your_IP)").
  • Specify Port: Enter a port number of your choice.

Core Server


Under the Core Server tab you can define the IPs for probe connections. The connection between core and probe is initiated by the probe 9see Multiple Probes and Remote Probes). You can select to use all IPs, localhost only or individual IPs from the list provided. You can further define the port for probe connections, as well as define a path for all core server data files (you can optionally turn on compression and revert to the default path by clicking on the respective element).

Memory Usage


Under the Memory Usage tab you can define timeframes for live graphs, as well as the other three standard graphs displayed under PRTG. You can reduce memory usage by decreasing the graph time frame and increasing the intervals.



Under the Administrator tab you can define the login name, the password and the email address of the administrator user.



Under the License tab you can enter your program license information (name and key, which will return a license edition value), as well as Netflow/xFlow add-on licenses. Once the licensing information has been entered click on the "Check Key(s)" button to check and activate the same.

Service Control


Under the Service Control tab you can install/uninstall, as well as start/stop the core service.



Under the Log tab you can view the current day's web server log, the core server system logs or directly open the core's log file directory.
