Greetings...I have installed and configured the pcmonitor service and config file as per instructions and when I start the service all looks well but when I type in status command I get 

 
root@raspberrypi:~# /etc/init.d/pcmonitor status
[FAIL] pcmonitor is not running ... failed!
 
 
But when I type in restart command it look good
 
root@raspberrypi:~# /etc/init.d/pcmonitor restart
[ ok ] Restarting pcmonitor: pcmonitor.
 
I do not see the system listed obviously on my account.
 
Any help would be appreciated

If you got no response for cat /var/log/syslog | grep pcmonitor, it means you have no such errors. 

Can we get more details on your system : which os for raspberry , the output for uname -a , the config file you are using (remove sensitive data ) .

Also make sure pcmonitor is running by issuing ps aux | grep pcmonitord

There is no "second place to fill in username/password".

In config.xml this is the only place where you need to put credentials :

 
<Account Username="username" Password="password" UseCustomServer="false" CustomServerAddress="" />
