Re: WiFi Guard Pre-Release

yesterday, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

There were a couple of tiny improvements, which have subsequently been added to the official release files available for download from WiFi Guard product page. The changes were so small that they did not earn a changelog entry and a version number increase. If you have already got the latest version, you can keep using it without updating anything. But if you download the current application f

Re: What does "ms" stand for?

7 days ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

ms means milliseconds. In your example: "192.168.2.1" is the IP address of the device (network connection identifier of the device). "14-35-8B-01-67-50" is the MAC address of the device (physical identifier of the device). "1 ms" is Round-Trip Time (RTT). It shows how long it took to receive a response from that device. In this case it took 1 millisecond. &quo

Re: Suggestion: Add more custom "friendly" columns

Thank you for the suggestion. It looks like a good idea, so we have just implemented Associated Data, which is custom columns support under Friendly Host Names. Please download the new build to test this feature.

Re: How to incorporate the date into the report filenames

9 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

A set of special date-formatting characters is supported in reports saved to a file. You can use any of these tokens, each surrounded by % characters: y yy yyyy m mm mmm mmmm d dd ddd dddd h hh n nn s ss For example: %yyyy%-%mm%-%dd%.txt will become 2023-01-23.txt

Re: Remote Time

19 days ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

Network Scanner uses the NetRemoteTOD Windows API call to find out the remote time. If for some reason it returns inconsistent data, you can try getting the remote time via WMI with SELECT LocalDateTime FROM Win32_OperatingSystem Simply go to Settings - Remote WMI and add the above query. It will then query the current time from the WMI subsystem.

Re: What do 3 dashes (---) in the Ping Time column mean?

22 days ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

It means that the device was discovered via an ARP request but did not respond to ping. So the ping time couldn't be measured. The device is still connected to your WiFi.

Re: No graph is displayed in Connection Monitor

27 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

The table below the strip with the ping and uptime figures in Connection Monitor lists historical downtime and ping. In the older releases it was not updated in real time and instead it fetched the latest data when it was opened. If that's your case, you can simply close and re-open that window, and you will see what's been recorded. There is no need to keep it open for the monitoring to be ac

Re: No graph is displayed in Connection Monitor

28 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

If you see the usage graph and data in other places in NetWorx while only the Connection Monitor window is empty, simply close the Connection Monitor window and re-open it anew. If however you don't see the usage graph and data anywhere, please check your NetWorx settings under Mode on the Main tab. It needs to be set either to 'Monitoring of applications' or 'Monitoring of a network adapter'.

Re: How to relocate NinjaTrader files to RAM disk

4 weeks ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

The correct way to use mklink is: mklink /d "C:\Users\Owner\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\tmp" "V:\NT8" Most importantly, V:\NT8 must exist, while C:\Users\Owner\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\tmp must NOT exist. In your case you are getting an error probably because the path C:\Users\Owner\Documents\NinjaTrader 8\tmp already exists. So you will need to delete the tmp folder prior

Re: Host Name resolution across VLANs

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

Host name resolution should work across VLANs in the default configuration. You can also try different name lookup methods that can be chosen next to the host name resolution checkbox. If it still doesn't work on some devices, it may be that those devices don't have names assigned to them or there is a firewall that blocks such attempts.

Re: Application-specific limiting

6 weeks ago, by Ann in Bandwidth Manager Forum

For limiting the applications running of your computer we have a different product, NetGenius. It has a free fully-featured 30-day trial, so you are very welcome to download it and see if it does exactly what you want. Bandwidth Manager is more suitable for shaping network traffic on a server for multiple users, whereas NetGenius was designed specifically for controlling applications.

Re: Suddenly no network activity is reported

8 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

If you are monitoring a router, there can be two reasons for this sudden disappearance of all network activity: The router entered an error condition and stopped supplying usage data. First of all, please try rebooting your router. The router interface ID has changed. In this case, please go to NetWorx Settings - Main - Settings - Router Monitoring and try adding your router again.

Re: Best practices for updating to a new version

8 weeks ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

Before version 4.0.4 RAM Disk updates required uninstalling the older version. But since then, a new version can be simply installed over, although you do need to exit the GUI if it is opened. So, to upgrade from version 4.2.0 to 4.3.3, it is a two-step process: Enter your newly purchased licence key on the machine you are upgrading. This will replace the old licence. Exit the GUI (if it is

Re: RAM disk loses shares after reboot

2 months ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

Firstly, please make sure you are using a RAM disk that is mounted At Startup, not at logon. A boot-time disk is initialised much earlier and is available to system services. Secondly, try ticking Hard Disk Emulation in the RAM Disk properties. Windows treats those disks differently, and we received feedback from other customers reporting that this helped them with the same issue. And lastly

Re: Scanning different subnet

2 months ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

There are a couple of settings that may help with this: 1. In Options - General, ensure that Allow ARP outside current subnet is not checked: 2. In Options - Additional, move Router SNMP MIB query up in the list, so it would take priority over ARP requests:

Re: Automatic speed unit display/adjustment

2 months ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Yes, there is a setting for that. It can be accessed by opening the regular NetWorx Settings window and then pressing Ctrl+O (that's letter "O", not zero) while that window is open and active. This will open the Hidden Settings dialog where you can fine-tune NetWorx further. The setting you need to change is called Display format. It can have values 0, 1, 2, or 3. They set the speed u

Re: Discovering IPs on Ruckus ICX switches

2 months ago, by Ann in Switch Port Mapper Forum

As far as I know, the ARP protocol that is used to map MAC addresses to IP addresses only works within a single subnet and within a single VLAN. So yes, you would need to be connected to that VLAN to get MAC-to-IP address mappings. Unless you have a router that exposes its MAC-to-IP address mappings via SNMP. In this case VLANs don't matter, as the software simply pulls the mappings from the r

Re: Discovering IPs on Ruckus ICX switches

2 months ago, by Ann in Switch Port Mapper Forum

It really depends on where the IP addresses come from. Since the switch itself doesn't know anything about IP addresses, the software can either pull MAC-to-IP address mappings from your router (if configured) or scan your network to obtain the mappings. The latter will work only in the local subnet. What seems to be missing exactly: some MAC addresses, or some IP addresses, or both? It would b

Re: How to detect all Wi-Fi devices on all SSID

2 months ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

It really depends on whether your router isolates WiFi (and wired) networks from each other. If it does, then devices from one network cannot see devices in another network, and WiFi Guard will not be able to detect them. This isolation can usually be configured in the router settings. So if you want to be able to detect devices everywhere, the isolation needs to be turned off.

Re: Some active devices are not detected and some inactive devices persist

2 months ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

We will investigate what could be causing this lag in detection in WiFi Guard, but as no other users have reported this issue, and without access to your network, it may be quite specific to your setup and hard to reproduce.You may like to keep using Wireless Network Watcher, at least for now. We will post an update here.

Re: Some active devices are not detected and some inactive devices persist

2 months ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

This is not how WiFi Guard should behave. It should detect the devices connected to the WiFi network it guards. If by "unplugged a laptop from router" you mean a physical cable, then, if your laptop has WiFi (almost all of them do), it can still be connected to the network and that's what WiFi Guard detects. Regarding other devices, again, depends what you mean by "active"

Re: After moving TEMP to RAM disk, some files are still created in C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

1. To change the system-level TEMP and TMP, press Win + R (Run), type sysdm.cpl, press Enter. The System Properties window will open. There, go to Advanced tab, press Environment Variables..., and then under System Variables section press Edit... 2. If your system breaks, a safe mode boot may help. Or you can try booting into the recovery mode and changing HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentContr

Re: After moving TEMP to RAM disk, some files are still created in C:\WINDOWS\TEMP

2 months ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

RAM Disk is far from being "useless". What you see in your C:\Windows\TEMP depends on how you performed your migration. There are two kinds of TMP/TEMP environment variables in Windows: user-level (used by the regular applications that you launch) and system-level (used by the system and services). When you change the TMP/TEMP variables in RAM Disk settings, it only modifies the us

Re: Which interface is shown in the menu bar/taskbar speed display?

2 months ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

As NetWorx can monitor multiple interfaces, but there is only one menu bar item, it shows all interfaces combined. For example, if you are monitoring two interfaces, one downloading 10 Mbit and the other 5 MBit, the amount shown in the bar will be 15 MBit.

Re: Empty space between NetWorx taskbar display and the rest of taskbar icons

2 months ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

We have recently fixed a couple of issues with the taskbar display/graph. If you download the latest build and update your installation, it may well solve the issue with the extra space too. If not, and the extra space on the right of the graph remains, you may need to resize it. For that, simply move the mouse over the left side of the graph and a vertical bar will appear allowing you to expan

Flicker in the taskbar area - Fixed

2 months ago, by Ann in NetGenius Forum

Thank you for reporting this issue. We have fixed the flicker in the latest build. However transparency is no longer supported on Windows 7. Instead, to achieve the same appearance, you can set the taskbar extension background colour similar/identical to your taskbar colour.

SNMP monitoring on macOS - Fixed

Thank you for reporting this issue. There was actually a tiny bug that prevented SNMP monitoring from working on macOS. Please download the latest build and update your copy of the app. After that, in the list of interfaces right-click any created SNMP entries and delete them as shown below. Then re-add your NAS and the interface monitoring should begin working properly.
