map custom HTML




We have a device that we cannot monitor via SNMP, but it does create a webpage on the same PC as the PRTG server. How can we include this htm page into the custom HTML insert?

I have tried placing the files in the /webroot folder, and also /mapobjects

Where is the correct folder to place this htm file so it can be displayed in the map using and iframe?

thank you very much for using PRTG. Did you try the suggestions from the following KB-Article already: How can I show up-to-date weather information, webcam and radar images in PRTG's maps?. Please be aware though that browsers will block here, if you are trying to embed HTTP-Elements into an HTTPS-Site.
Depending on the device's webserver, would it be an alternative to monitor the page with HTTP Content or HTTP XML / Rest Sensor(s) and display their results on the map?

best regards.

best regards.

Yes I have tried that using the HTTP before section, however It would not display the page when the file is on local storage. I have copied the htm page to all the directories and tried to reference it in the 'HTTP before' using:

<iframe src='mapobjects/weather.htm'></iframe>

this does not work.

<iframe src='webroot/weather.htm'></iframe>

This works.

I would like the htm page to be saved in its own folder as it is created and saved with all the pictures in the same folder. otherwise ill have to have the files saved to the 'webroot' folder

I'm afraid this may not be possible as you intend it. It certainly is not officially supported, I'm afraid. Please see if you can change the page, so that the links to images can be into a different folder.
