PRTG Integration Video Tutorial
Welcome to the PRTG Installation Tutorial.

In this tutorial, we'll be going over how to configure the PRTG Network Monitor to send SMS alerts through PageGate.

The first step is to install PageGate. If you haven't already installed PageGate, please pause this video and click on the first link to install Pagegate in Windows XP, Server 2000 or Server 2003: https://www.notepage.net/videos/pagegate-xp-installation.htm

and click on the second link to install PageGate on Windows Vista, 7 or Server 2008: https://www.notepage.net/videos/pagegate-vista-installation.htm

The second step is to configure PageGate's GetAscii module. If you haven't already configured the GetAscii module, please pause this video and click on the link to go through the steps in the Basic GetAscii tutorial: https://www.notepage.net/videos/pagegate-basic-ascii-setup.htm

The third step is to configure Carriers, Recipients and Groups in the PageGate Admin. If you haven't already configured carriers, recipients or groups in the PageGate Admin, please pause this video and visit the Video Tutorials section of our website for more information on how to do that: https://www.notepage.net/video-tutorials.htm

The final step in preparing to integrate PRTG with PageGate is to switch PageGate's run style from an Application to a Windows service. To do this, please pause this video and go through the steps in the Switching Run Styles tutorial: https://www.notepage.net/videos/pagegate-run-styles.htm

Once you have PageGate configured, you'll need to install and configure PRTG.

After downloading the installation file for the PRTG Network Monitor, double click on it to begin the installation.

After selecting your language from the dropdown list, click on OK.

Click on Next on the first step.

After carefully reading the End user License Agreement, select "I accept the agreement" and click on Next.

After selecting your preferred installation folder, click on Next to begin the installation process.

Once the installation completes, click on the Choose button to select the Edition of PRTG you wish to use and follow the PRTG prompts.

Upon completion of the PRTG prompts, the PRTG Network Monitor basic information tutorial should begin. Click on next through each of the four prompts.

The first time the PRTG Network Monitor runs, it will bring up this web browser login page.

If this is the first time you've run the PRTG Network Monitor, click on Default Login.

The first step in telling PRTG how to communicate with PageGate is to configure PageGate to monitor PRTG's output folder.

To do so, run the PageGate Admin.

Then go in to the Interfaces - GetAscii - Settings. Click on the Elipses button next to the Polling Directory.

Browse to the c:\program files\PRTG Network Monitor\Notifications\EXE\ folder, then select it and click on OK.

Click on apply, then close the PageGate Admin. The next step is to configure a notification or series of notifications in PRTG.

To do this, run the PRTG Network Monitor and go under the Setup section.

Then click on Notifications. Once in the notifications section, click on Add New Notification.

Give the notification a name, then configure the various options for your new notification.

Once you've configured the basic information for your notification, put a check in Execute Program.

Click on the dropdown arrow next to Program File and select the Sendpage32.exe file.

Click in the Parameter section.

The first variable needs to be the name of a recipient or group as it appears in the PageGate Admin. In this example, I'll be using the test recipient.

The second variable needs to be the name of the Sender. Whatever you type here is what will show up as who sent the message. In this example, I'll be using NotePage as my sender variable.

Every other parameter here is specified by PRTG. For a full list of parameters and their explanations, please visit the PRTG support website: http://www.paessler.com/support

After reviewing the alert, click on Save.

Now that your new notification is in the list, let's run a test. Before we test the alert, run the PageGate Monitor.

Once the PageGate Monitor is running, go back in to the PRTG Network Monitor screen and click on the Test option next to your new notification.

Switch back to the PageGate Monitor and you should see PageGate accept the message from PRTG, then deliver it.

This concludes the tutorial on how to install and configure PRTG to integrate with PageGate. For more tutorials, including how to install the Pagegate Server and configure the GetAscii module, please visit our website, www.notepage.net
