Congratulations, your PRTG hosted by Paessler instance is up and running! To open the device tree, click View Results or Devices in the main menu bar.

PRTG hosted by Paessler has automatically created a Hosted Probe that runs on the hosted PRTG instance. It shows several health values of the instance and you can instantly monitor all servers, services, and devices that are publicly available via the internet with this probe. See also section Architecture and User Interfaces—Probes.

A Paessler employee guides you through the Smart Setup. In particular, you have to install a remote probe, which is required for monitoring your LAN. We strongly recommend that you follow the instructions to have the best monitoring experience!
