Hi,

PRTG comes with its own webserver. You can log on the PRTG Server and open the PRTG Administrator Tool. Here you can configure the IP address on which the server will listen. This IP address needs to also be entered in the https://// field within the Android Probe. Please note that the server needs to be accessible from the Android device, so you might need to configure NAT or use VPN to connect to the Core Server if you want to use the Probe outside of your network.

The choice of the key is up to you, but it needs to be entered in the Android Probe as well as in the web GUI "Setup > System Administration > Core & Probes > Access Key" field below the other entries.

Please follow this step by step guide to setup the Android Probe.

Best regards, Felix
