Default login



Hi, Could I configure PRTG with a default login in READ-ONLY mode, and other accounts with ADMIN / write access to the web interface ?

Thanks in advance, kind regards, Marc

Dear Marc

The default login is always an admin login and only active if no other admin login was set with the "PRTG Administrator" tool found in the PRTG program group.

Please create a read-only user with an easy-to-remember password for your staff.
