PRTG Manual: Install the Enterprise Console
The Enterprise Console Is Deprecated!
The Enterprise Console is deprecated. We provide the documentation in this section for your information only. We recommend that you use PRTG Desktop instead.
The Enterprise Console is already included in a PRTG core server installation (PRTG on premises only) You can install additional Enterprise Consoles on other computers.
PRTG hosted by Paessler does not support connections from the Enterprise Console. If you want to use it, connect the Enterprise Console to a PRTG on premises instance.

The version of the Enterprise Console (EC) has to match the PRTG core server version that you want to connect to. It can connect to a PRTG server where the third entry in the version number is equal to the third entry of the EC version number. For example, EC version 188.8.131.523 can connect to any PRTG server with version 15.1.16.xxxx.
