With version 7.0.8 (currently in beta) we have added a new user interface that is optimized for the Apple iPhone. This feature enables the user to quickly check the status of his servers and sensors on the road.

Simply point the Safari browser of your iPhone to the URL https://(your_prtg_server)/iphone and you will see the login dialog (see screnshots). Enter your credentials and a few seconds later you will see the sensor tree with groups, devices and sensors on the iPhone display. Tap on a sensor and you will receive a display with detailed information about the sensor, recent graphs logfile entries. Currently the iPhone interface is "read only" (you can only check monitoring status). More features and functions will be added soon. Some security aspects:
  • You could also use HTTP to connect to your server, but encrypted access with SSL/HTTPS is recommended in order to keep your password secure
  • As an added level of security you could create a user just for your iphone logins that only has read access for the "Root Group".
The beta can be downloaded from the PRTG download page. A detailed list of changes in V 7.0.8 is available in the PRTG history.
