prtg running on port 443, but port 80 still used?



Is there any way to stop paessler from listening on port 80 when I use prtg in ssl mode? I'd like to run a special website on the same server

Thanks! The regedit in that article works. I couldn't find a way to make prtg depend on the w3wsc service.

Can't upvote your answer however.

I just went through this and thought I'd add my own solution since this topic is several years old.

In my case, I was trying to run an IIS website alongside PRTG. What I did was stopped PRTG services, turned on my IIS website, and then set the PRTG services to Automatic (Delayed Start). This will delay the start of PRTG by at least two minutes after the last Automatic service has started. That should be plenty of time for IIS to occupy port 80.
