How can I add more users?   05 February 2011, 02:57

I love this useful application. I would like to add other users in my household, like track my son's network usage. How can I add another user to the app?
Currently when I open the Users option, it only shows my name and All Users Combined option.

If you have a number of PCs attached to a router (wired or wireless) you can install Networx on each of the PCs, set the "Synchronise usage data..." on the Settings/Advanced tab, and "Ignore local traffic..." on the Settings/Main tab.

Each instance of Networx will talk to the others and will each show the individual traffic for each of the PCs as well as the aggregate.

As Networx has to be installed on each of the PCs on the network it cannot be used to monitor games devices, nor is there a Mac version as far as I know.

Hi there,

I did install the application on the server, aswell as on the other machines that I want to monitor, I did say Set Synchronize data and ignore local traffic.

I did that on the local machines, but still, I cant see the persons name on the server side to monitor their usage

You need to turn on Synchronisation on the server too.

Still nothing hey, I turned it on on the server and on the workstation, and ticked the block traffic on the server and workstation, if I go to users, it just says all users combined....

What am I doing wrong?

It could also be a firewall blocking NetWorx sync. If the server is multihomed, that is has got more than one NIC, you may need to set a correct broadcast address in the hidden settings.
