We intend to use PRTG monitor in an environment with no Internet access ==> installation and execution offline After installing PRTG monitor trial version for test purpose on a Windows server 2016 running in a VM environment, I have to active the trial Licence. I select "French" during installation wizard. The VM has only a loopback interface defined 127.0.0.1
From the URL "http://127.0.0.1/activation.htm", I select "Manual (offline activation)". Then the web page display my licence details in STEP 2
ÉTAPE 2 : Vérifier votre licence PRTG
I copy/paste these information to the "https://www.paessler.com/activation" web page from another computer connected to the Internet. I get an activation.dat file.
Coming back to STEP 4 of the action process, i copy/paste the content of activation.dat file to activation data text block then press "Activate the licence"
The activation page is refresh but still with message Status of license: Not activated (Failed to establish secure connection Socket Error # 11001 Host not found.)
I also tried the option "Load from file" activation.dat instead of copy/paste of the content but it's also failing.
What to do next ? Is there any log file to troubleshoot the activattion process ?
Best Regards Bruno
