PRTG Manual: PRTG Administration Tool

The PRTG Administration Tool is part of every PRTG installation. You can use it to edit the administrative settings of local probe and remote probe installations.

You can start the PRTG Administration Tool from the Windows Start menu on the PRTG core server system or on the remote probe system. If you start the PRTG Administration Tool on the PRTG core server system, you can change settings that affect the entire installation and the local probe. If you run the PRTG Administration Tool on a remote probe system, you can only change settings that are related to the remote probe.

Any settings that you change require a restart of the affected PRTG core server service and PRTG probe service to apply any changes to the configuration.
