Installing network traffic filtering driver - necessary or optional?

Started by Joe

Hello there,
Is it necessary for NetWorx to install a driver filter? What exactly does the network filter do?
I am looking for a program to just monitor upload / download speeds, without bandwidth control.
Thanks for the info,
Joe

The filtering driver enables monitoring usage by application (e.g. how much data particular applications use on your computer). In addition, you will be able to disregard local traffic if your computer is connected to a LAN.

Otherwise, the driver is not necessary. Simply install NetWorx without the driver and see if it provides all the functionality you require. Upload/download speed monitoring will work fine - no driver is needed for that.
