How can I send push notifications from PRTG to iPhones via Prowl through a proxy server?



I have to use a corporate proxy server for my internet connection. How can I send PRTG notifications to my iPhone via Prowl (see How can I send Push Notifications from PRTG to iPhones?) but use a proxy for the connection?

Important notice: As of PRTG core server version 14.3.13 and PRTG for iOS 14.3.6 resp. PRTG for Android 14.3.2, you can use push notifications with your iPhone resp. Android device without any workaround.

Please see this article for details:

Max, a passionate PRTG user has found a solution for sending Prowl messages to iPhones via a VBS script using the small command line tool cURL.

The script would be:

dim x,Params,increment,ArgObj,cmdline

Set ArgObj=Wscript.Arguments
Set WshShell=Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

For increment=0 to ArgObj.count – 1
Params = Params & ArgObj(increment) & "%20″

cmdline="-U domain\user:password -k -x myproxy.company.org:80 "&"https://prowl.weks.net/publicapi/add?apikey=MY0000API0000KEY&application=My%20Monitoring&event=Alarm&description=" & params

x = WshShell.Run("""C:\program files\PRTG Network Monitor\Notifications\EXE
\curl.exe""" & cmdline)

Don't forget to substitute domain\user:password, myproxy.company.org:80, MY0000API0000KEY, My%20Monitoring and Alarm by your own values!
