Hi All!
I have not found how to clean a list of old typed addresses in Tools - Ping and Trace. Who knows - tell me please.

  1. Quit NetWorx.
  2. Download SQLite Spy.
  3. Launch it and load the NetWorx database file located in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\SoftPerfect\NetWorx.
  4. Execute the following query:
      DELETE FROM config WHERE Param = 'HostName'  
  5. Start NetWorx again.

We don't see any real need for an average user to delete those entries.
I don't understand how it is that you don't see the real need for an average user to delete or edit addresses in the Ping or Trace lists. It seems like a common need. For example, I've mistyped an address in the Ping list and it kept it in the list. Sure would have been nice to have an easier way to delete it than downloading new software to edit the NetWorx database! Not to mention the fact that the Ping list just grows and grows when I ping various websites. I really don't need to keep a list of EVERY website that I ping.

Both of these lists (ping and trace route) only keep 10 most recent addresses used. If there is an incorrect entry, it would be pushed out over time as you ping or trace new addresses.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
