How to change display of PRTG IP address to public IP address



My PRTG installation is on a host with a private IP address. How can I change the email to display my public (NAT'd) IP address in the URL, so I can click the link on an external host and have it resolve properly?

you can try adjusting the "Site Name Field" in the System & Website-Settings.

best regards.

Actually, I just used the DNS Name field in Setup > System Administration > System & Website.

Doing this on an Amazon EC2 box, so I just used a DynDNS.org hostname I created with the Elastic IP Amazon gave me.

Works perfectly.
