how to change the word "localhost" in the url using the server's ip address instead?



when I receive an alert in my email, I see localhost when I point to a url in the email (for example when I want to see the sensor in question or change the notification settings). So my question: how to change the word localhost in the url using the server's ip address instead?

example: https://localhost:843/sensor.htm?id=3274 ---->

Thank you for your post.

Open the PRTG web interface and navigate to Setup>System Administration>User Interface and check what option is selected in the section "IP Address for Web Server".

Kind regards,
