Silent and preconfigured installation   17 August 2016, 00:10

Hi,

I'm looking for way to automatically (no user intervention) install Networx that is already preconfigured.
I understand the portable version does not support Application usage tracking which is the function I want the most.

1) What's the difference between portable and setup versions?
2) Is it possible to silent install Networx (and not run it automatically) and then overwrite the installation folder with the one that is already configured, then run it - using powershell or a batch file?
3) If I set the Report option to weekly, in the Application portion of the report will it show the applications with their weekly total of sent/receive/total? Or will it list all the days in the week?

Thanks

Apart from coming with the installer, the setup version comes with a driver to filter out LAN traffic and an extension called desk band:

Yes, it's possible. Run the installation package with /SILENT or /VERYSILENT for unattended installation. Then you can place pre-configured NetWorx.DB in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\SoftPerfect\NetWorx and finally start the app.

It's weekly totals, there is no breakdown by day of week.

That's exactly what I want. To the devs maybe consider adding sorting to the html log file output. Or is this already possible using some other setting in a different tab? (I've looked).

Thanks

Isn't the report already sorted? As far as I remember by application name. Or you are suggesting to change to sorting by usage, with applications that used most data on top?

Sorry yes, would make sense since it's a usage report.

Good idea, we've just updated NetWorx. Now it orders applications by usage in its e-mail reports, in line with that in the Usage Reports section. You can download the update here.
