We would like to enable PRTG for external access so we can use the IOS smartphone app to monitor our infra? Currently we access it internally only.

What is the way to setup?

Thanks

Hello there,

You need to publish the server so it is reachable for the corresponding devices. The most common possibilities are a VPN tunnel or using a proxy/firewall to forward the connection accordingly.


Kind regards,

You actually should add a reverse proxy in your DMZ, assuming VPN is an insufficient solution. Check the guide here: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/44613-using-windows-iis-as-ssl-proxy-for-prtg
