PRTG Manual: First Start
This section helps you to start the Enterprise Console for the first time.
Double click the PRTG Enterprise Console icon in the Windows start menu to open it. As soon as it opens, the Enterprise Console tries connecting to your PRTG installation, according to the defined PRTG server connection settings. In a fresh install of PRTG, the settings for the Enterprise Console installed on the computer running the PRTG core server are already predefined, so you can use the Enterprise Console right away. If you get an error message when opening the Enterprise Console, please check the connection settings. For example, adjusting the settings is necessary if you changed the IP address of the server.
For detailed information, see section PRTG Servers (PRTG Server Connection).
By default, the Enterprise Console runs in background and shows a message box whenever there are new alerts, new messages, or new tickets for your monitoring. This window is one of the first things you see after opening the Enterprise Console.
This window is always shown on top. Click the OK button to close it. You can change the tray behavior in the Enterprise Console settings.
For detailed information, see section Options (System—Alerting).
