Change License



I was using my company's enterprise license and had own prtg server running. Since I am no longer with the company, I need to change to free edition. The only problem is. It seems like the company didn't renew their license as well. I am stuck at the Activate Your License screen. How can I change it to a free 100 version.

Hey Rob,

On the "Activate your License" screen, simply enter the license information of a trial/freeware license.

License name: prtgtrial
License key: can be found here

For details, please check the according manual page.
