Using PRObject



I am trying to use the PRObject executable to pause/un-pause sensors for the command line. I keep receiving the error "The operation has timed out".

An example of the command

PRObject.exe -u=https://prtgserver -un=myusername -pw=mypassword -id=40273 -a=p

I have tried the -u parameter with the following "formats"

prtg (base server name) prtg.mydomain.com https://prtg https://prtg.mydomain.com

command-line probject timeout

I'm afraid this tool is not directly from us. May I ask you to please contact the developer: https://code.google.com/p/prtg-addons/wiki/PTF_Tools_VersionHistory

best regards.

For the -u= parameter please use the exact same url that you would enter in your webbrowser when connecting to your PRTG server.
