Is it possible to create URL aliases?



Is it possible to create URL aliases/shortcuts like in WordPress/Drupal/etc?

For a example I want to create a URL like: http://mymonitor.com/shortlinks/twodayoverview to point to http://mymonitor.com/device.htm?id=2039&tabid=2

I guess this is possible using IIS as a proxy for your PRTG server. Please see Konstantin's KB post Using Windows IIS as SSL Proxy for PRTG.

It will require further digging into the subject of friendly url's and url rewrite rules.

Dear ScanlineVFX

PRTG has no build-in fuction for URL aliases. However you could manually change the webinterface HTM files and implement some shortcut links. Please notify that with any software-update though, you would need to re-implement these changes.

The alternative to this is to create a PRTG map and include the links there and use that map as home page.
