Video Tutorials Made by PRTG-Users
Some committed PRTG users have created video tutorials to help other users start with PRTG, explaining their custom-made PRTG add-ons, but also to describe and solve complex technical tasks.
Gerard has been accompanying us for a long time – on the Paessler Google Code platform he offers quite a few custom-made PRTG tools and extensions for download. His video tutorials address advanced users providing assistance for Gerard’s tools, as well as with creating own add-ons and tools for PRTG.
