I have installed twice. The Windows GUI launches fine, but can't connect to any type of web interface locally or remotely... is IIS suppose to be installed or something ??? Nothing in the online requirements that I can find mentioned IIS being require so at a loss.

Both PRTG services are launched and running

any help would be fine...

Off to try another software and see if I can get something to work

Hello,

PRTG does not use or require IIS. Which error do you get? Can you access PRTG in your webbrowser?

best regards.

Can you connect to 127.0.0.1 on the PRTG host? Please also check if your browser supports SSLv3.

Maybe you have multiple IP addresses and the PRTG's webserver is not listening on the correct IP? You can check this in the PRTG Server Administration Tool under Select IP address for PRTG's Web Server.

OK

Must have been browser related, because when I installed Firefox, I can access stuff...

Now my next question... I am trying to locate who on the network is using all the freaking bandwidth on the internet... I have tried running some reports, but it doesn't show much other than some printers with high traffic (sure, everyone internally prints to them) so not sure how I can view real time bandwidth by computer or possibly a report with every computer's bandwidth usage over the last 15 min ??? help (and thanx so far)

In order to show your traffic in very detail, you will need to set up bandwidth monitoring sensors, such as Packet Sniffing or NetFlow/sFlow/jFlow sensors.

For more details, please see PRTG 8 Manual: Bandwidth Monitoring Comparison and the article How do I discern excessive bandwidth usage with PRTG?
