How can I add an iframe to an image that looks like a popup?



Good morning, what happens is that in the company I work they want to improve the way the network looks (everything they want to show by means of the maps) and they are requesting that in an icon / image (example: camera image ) place an ip of a camera and click on the image to open a popup window that shows the camera in real time without opening new windows or typing users and passwords.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi there,

Unfortunately, that is not really possible as the logins to display camera feed are there for a purpose and cannot be deactivated within an iFrame.

The only way would be if the live feed can be retrieved by submitting a BASIC authentication rather than a login form.

Even though, then there is no way to dynamically open and close iframes within a map in PRTG as this would require further javascript/jquery libraries to be added to allow such dynamic content.

Best regards.
