PRTG Desktop bug report.

Hi,

I have discovered another issue id like to share with you regarding the PRTG Desktop software.

Windows 10 Enterprise 1803

When the desktop app is open and minimized to the system tray - when my machine locks itself and/or wakes up from sleep - the desktop app will not reconnect to the server automatically. Even clicking the refresh button doesnt wake it back up. Just sits there saying "Could not connect"

Have to close the app down and reopen it to establish a connection again.

Becasue the system tray icon is there though its hard to know if its working or not, a few instances i was expecting warnings and down notifications from it - but it never because it hadnt reconnected itself.

Thanks

This issue still remains, the original post was created October 2018, almost a year and no fix? any expected date of resolution?

Hi there,

From the development ticket it seems to got released around new year. So from our side the issue is fixed.

The main issue is that we have little to no requests to this, at least not anymore. We were also never able to replicate the issue.

Best regards.

The issue is most definitely not fixed. Any time I start my laptop up when it's not connected to the network, or when it loses network connectivity, PRTG Desktop disconnects from the server and never reconnects, even when the network connection is restored. Even worse, I can't find a way to tell PRTG Desktop to disconnect and reconnect.

For the most part, I find PRTG Desktop to be an improvement over PRTG Enterprise, but it's always had niggling issues some of which have never been addressed or resolved.

Hello Robert,

This issue appears to be re-occurring, I'm afraid. Allow me to make our developers aware of it to have another look into this issue. Please excuse the inconvenience caused and bear with us.

Best,
Sebastian

Hi,

OP here with an update...

It was fixed for a good while - but i concur its not reconnecting again now.

Think i started to notice it again not from the last desktop update but from the update before that

Hi ftl,

I also tend to say that it is a new bug. I talked to our developers yesterday and they will have a look into it.

Best,
Sebastian
