After installing PRTG, did you go into the PRTG Server Administrator Tool and change the Web Server settings to allow connections to the IP of that computer?

We generally do not recommend using Server 2008 R1 since we have seen many issues with the WMI performance and the overall performance in general. WMI Monitoring.

We now recommend using Server 2008 R2 since this supports the most sensors and is the most stable and tested OS for PRTG Recommended OS.
