How to Setup the Web View
In addition to alerting
notifications, IsItUp provides a Web View so that you can check on the status
of the devices you are monitoring from anywhere you have a connection to the
Internet. Since the Web View is compatible with most modern browsers, you can view
your device statuses from desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. The web view includes up and down statuses for
each device as well as the up time, percent availability and other
statistics. There are convenient
dropdowns to filter the Web View by groups or statuses. For example, if you had a group called “Mail
Servers”, you could filter by “Mail Servers” and status “Down” or any other
combination of group names and device statuses.
In order to provide you with
current information, the Web View is automatically updated at an interval setup
during configuration with a default of 30 seconds.
To quickly get started, first:
install IsItUp for a free 30 day trial.
Just click on the following link:

2. Select the port you want to
access IsItUp on. You can choose any available
port but the most common is port 80.
However, it may be in use.
Another popular choice is 8080. In order to access the web view, you need to point
your browser at the IP address of the computer IsItUp is running on and the
port you specified. For example, if the
computer IsItUp is running on is 10.0.0.1 and the port you specified was 8080,
you would use http://10.0.0.1:8080 as the
address in your browser.
3. Select the browser reload
interval. This interval is how often the
status will be updated in the browser.
It is the same for all browser sessions. Of course, you can always just
refresh the page to update the status whenever you wish.
4. Finally, select how users can
access the Web View. If security is not a concern, you can enable “Anonymous Access
so that anyone can access the Web View without a user name or password. Alternatively, you can create accounts and specify
which devices or groups will be in the user’s Web View.
5. If you require security, enable
“Authentication required”. Then click
the “Add” button to add a new account.
The following screen will be displayed:
can either select the “Include all devices” or select individual groups and devices
to be included in the view for this user.
If you select “Include all devices”, as new devices are added, the Web
View will automatically reflect the changes.
However, if you select the “Select specific devices”, you must manually
add new items if you want them included in the Web View for each user.
