This error [FORMS.PP] ExceptionOccurred indicates there was a problem with the component library called LCL that NetWorx relies upon. I recommend to try the latest builds made with newer LCL.

Regarding 32-bit ELFs, I am afraid we currently provide 64-bit builds only, as most systems nowadays are 64-bit.
Hi. I'm running Safari [a Mac Sierra]. I once had a Windows 10 system and under NetWorx the small icon in the tray (bottom, right) had the upload, download, and total usage of my connection. However now that I have Apple, the tray icon is at the top of the screen. The NetWorx version for the Mac does not display those stats which I find annoying. Am I using the wrong settings that are causing this problem?? Please advise. Thanks.

Hi Ron, your question is already answered here smile

Tried the linux version of Networx out on a Debian virtual machine. I was not able to get to the program in Gnome 3. As far as I could tell it was running correctly, however, the icon for it would not show up, even with the TaskBar extension.

I was able to get it to work inside both a Mate and LXDE environment. HOWEVER. One of the key features of the program is missing -- that is, the hidden options (why are these even hidden?). As such, it is currently unusable for me. I need to be able to change the SNMP community for monitoring. For security reasons, I'd really rather not leave my community as the default 'public'. I'm not much of a Linux guru, so digging around a system trying to find a config file needle in a haystack to see if I can do that isn't exactly what I call a good time. I'd rather just be able to do it from within the program itself.

If that could happen, it would be fantastic, and I know the other features will come with time.

The hidden settings have been made available in version 1.0.1. The reason those are hidden is that most users don't need to change them and this way we can keep the UI simple.

I've been thinking a bit (scary) and I've come up with an idea... a Linux version compiled for ARM architecture. That probably sounds insane. It kind of is. Except not. Think of the application for Networx: by providing a ARM compatible version, you now can put Networx on a Raspberry Pi. Pi might be the perfect candidate for a dedicated Networx monitoring swolution. Extremely tiny, extremely cheap, extremely low power-consumption devices that have ethernet, wifi, and bluetooth connection capability.

Technically it can be compiled for Linux ARM, it's just that we'd have to setup a build environment and maintain it for presumably few enthusiasts. Perhaps at a later stage and if more people request it.
