PRTG Manual: Enterprise Console
The Enterprise Console (formerly called "Windows GUI") is one alternative interface you can use to connect to the PRTG core server to configure your setup, view monitoring results and keep an eye on your network. It is a native Windows application for fast access to data and monitoring management.
The Enterprise Console provides extended popup window functionalities as well as a seamless link to the Ajax web interface where you can change your monitoring configuration and access further functionalities such as reporting, Maps, system setup, etc. Some of these functionalities are shown with an embedded webkit browser, for others an external browser window is opened.
As an additional functionality, you can configure access to several PRTG core servers in the Enterprise Console. The console will then show data of your independent core server installations at a glance (for example, the device tree and alarms list), so you can manage your monitoring centrally, also when it is spread across different servers.
With an installation of PRTG Network Monitor, the Enterprise Console is included and installed automatically on the computer running the PRTG core server. If you want to use the Enterprise Console on another computer, please download and install it there, as described in the Install the Enterprise Console section.
Note: The Enterprise Console is mainly designed to review and manage an existing installation of PRTG which has already been set up. If you just started monitoring, we recommend you use the Configuration Guru and the web interface's auto-discovery function and add your network's devices there.
For detailed instructions, please see Quick Start Guide section. Once finished, you can seamlessly switch to the Enterprise Console.
