PRTG - Can't find other PCs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I can't seem to get PRTG to see other systems on the network.

An auto-scan comes back with:
  • The Router
  • The Printer
  • The Time Capsule
  • My PC
However, it can't seem to find neither my Brother's laptop nor the Family PC.

When I tried to add a WMI earlier I got a lovely user friendly message saying:

Quote:
Error Message:"Port Error : RPC Server not accessible. - Host: 192.168.0.55, User: Sam, Password: ******, Domain: ntlmdomain:srsvaio"
I'm not entirely sure what that means but I get the same one on my Family PC too.

The two computers can connect to me (http://192.168.0.11) opens PRTG in their browser.

Do I need to install PRTG on each PC?

I've enabled the SNMP and WMI services on all the PCs but to no avail.

Any networking nuts around here?

I assume that you would not need to install PRTG on every machine, although they probably neeed to be in the same workgroup/domain also, do they have active firewalls?

P.S. I'm from geordieland too!

My Brother's firewall is turned off, yes.

Nice to see a fellow northerner.
