Re: How to get IP addresses and host hames to display

6 days ago, by Ann in Switch Port Mapper Forum

Normally switches don't report any IP-level information. The Port Mapper only gets a list of switch ports from the switch, along with information about MAC addresses connected to each port. There is no IP address information in the list, and there is no direct way to convert a MAC address to an IP address. To resolve MACs to IPs and then to host names, the Port Mapper does one of the followin

Re: ReFS formatting of a RAM disk

13 days ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

Sorry, ReFS is not currently supported. It did not cause a blue screen in our tests, but the format command simply failed to format a RAM disk. We may implement ReFS support in the future, but in the meantime it's not available. From what we can tell there is little demand for it, since ReFS as a resilient file system designed for physical drives, whereas a RAM disk not resilient by definition

Re: How to mark known devices in bulk

Thank you for your feedback. We'll considering making it possible in the future, but in the meantime there is an easy workaround: simply go to All Devices, select all the devices you want to mark as known, and choose the Mark as Known item in the pop-up menu.

Re: Feature suggestion: disk image compression

13 days ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

It is a good idea in theory, but implementing disk image compression on save has two major issues: Compression takes time, which will make system shutdown very slow due to writing and compressing the image files. It will break differential writing. At the moment the RAM Disk only writes blocks that changed since the image was last read. This saves a lot of disk I/O and is very fast. With compr

Re: How to run NetScanner on a schedule

13 days ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

Like any other program, it can be run by the Windows scheduler with some command-line parameters. Supported command-line switches are listed at the end of the Network Scanner user manual. Note that if you schedule Network Scanner to run under a different user or SYSTEM user, you would need to specify the configuration file in the command line. Alternatively, use the portable version of Network

Re: Saving Network Scanner results to a database

The result can be exported to a number of formats: XML, JSON and CSV. After that, they can be imported to the database you are using. Most database tools should be able to import CSV files, as those are essentially simple tables.

Re: Remote open Windows Registry

13 days ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

For option 1 (to enable remote registry access on some computers) you would need to change the firewall configuration and start the Remote Registry service. In a domain environment this is usually done via Group Policy Object (GPO) in Group Policy Editor (GPE). This is not something our software is designed for, so it cannot be done with the Network Scanner.

Re: Remote open Windows Registry

Could you please clarify what you mean by "remote open" the registry: Enable access to the remote registry on a remote machine? Read some values from a remote machine's registry? Browse a remote registry in a user interface, similar to regedit.exe? To use the Remote Registry feature you would need to configure the Windows firewall and enable the Remote Registry service on both ma

You can simply ban the following IP addresses: 103.74.123.129 42.112.21.239 118.69.172.224 125.212.226.108 This will make UltraViewer unable to receive a connect ID:

Re: How to get MAC-addresses displayed

Unfortunately you didn't provide much details about what you are doing, so I can only give you a general advice. If you are scanning the current subnet, make sure the ARP query lookup method is enabled under MAC resolution in the Options, on the Additional tab: If you are scanning a different subnet, try ticking Allow ARP outside current subnet on the General tab: Also, you may

Re: Monitoring the performance of the RAM Disk

4 weeks ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

This depends on what you want to get: If you just need some once-off performance figures, you can simply run any regular disk speed test, like CrystalDiskMark or HDTune, and then compare the figures with your regular HDDs. If you want to monitor the real I/O throughput of your applications with Performance Monitor, you need to enable the Hard Disk Emulation in the RAM Disk's settings. This will

Re: Measuring bandwidth between IP address ranges

You may want to try our Bandwidth Manager product. It can monitor the throughput between any sets of IP addresses, ports, etc. It will not however report latency, as it cannot be measured without periodic active testing.

Re: What would happen if a device changes its IP address?

5 weeks ago, by Ann in WiFi Guard Forum

WiFi Guard identifies devices by MAC addresses. So if you mark a device as "known", it should retain its status even if it later uses a different IP address. WiFi Guard displays IP addresses to help users to distinguish devices, but, depending on your device and network settings, IPs may change quite frequently. Some devices can even have multiple IP address at the same time - WiFi G

Re: "Not a valid ISO datetime" error

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Bandwidth Manager Forum

It looks like there was a bug that only manifested on certain locales (like Javanese) where the time separator is a dot, or some other locally-specific symbol, instead of the commonly used colon. We have just fixed that in the latest build. Please download, install over your current installation, and the problem should be gone.

Re: The RPC Server is Unavailable

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

The RPC (Remote Procedure Call) server error appears when some of the RPC-related services are not functioning properly. This is not caused by network scanning per se. It is usually related to disabled file or printer sharing, network connection interruptions, RPC-requested traffic being blocked by the firewall, or corrupted registry files. Here a quick overview of what can be wrong and how it

Unfortunately versions 3.4.7 and the latest (4.0.9) are not compatible for installing one over another.

Re: Entry Point Not Found (api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll)

Our Network Scanner is not written in C++ and has no run-time dependencies. In fact, it doesn't depend on anything other than the standard system DLLs, and wpcap.dll for WinPCap packet capture used only in certain features. The issue you describe is a very infrequent one. I can recommend the following to resolve it: (Re)Install Visual C++ 2015 run-time. If that doesn't help, run Dependency

Re: List of proxies with port numbers

6 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

Yes, the asterisks are a limitation of the free demo version. You would need to purchase a licence to remove this restriction. As I said before, our product is not exactly a proxy discovery tool. The setting you mentioned will find open ports, but those are not guaranteed to be proxy ports, or that they will accept proxy connections. You could either use the Remote Script feature and use

Re: List of proxies with port numbers

6 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

Network Scanner is not exactly a proxy discovery tool. Yet if you are simply scanning public addresses for certain open ports, this can be done as follows: Run a scan of an address pool, to check whether TCP ports of interest are open. Once the scan is completed, filter out devices without open ports: open Setup Filter (Ctrl + I), and there set "TCP Ports" as "Not Empty".

Re: High spikes of CPU and RAM usage

7 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

It sounds like you are using the "Ignore local traffic within the LAN" setting. When it is enabled, NetWorx has to filter every network packet and keep a list of connections for tracking. This may result in higher processor and memory usage. In your case, when, as you said, a lot is going on your Windows 7 computer, the CPU and RAM demands are very high. When pushed to extreme, towa

Re: Application data usage reporting on macOS

7 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

If you had only computers running Windows, you could install NetWorx on them and activate the "Ignore local traffic within the LAN" option (only Windows version has this functionality). This would enable per-application reporting and give you a good idea what's using most of your data. If you have other devices, like macOS computers, phones, tablets, gaming consoles or smart TV, unf

Re: Large size of database/log file NetWorx.db

7 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Alex, I'm sorry to hear that the preliminary build fix did not fix the issue for you. Database in excess of 7GB is a very large file to process, and it is possible that either you or some process on your computer terminated the optimisation before it completed, causing the error you see. We will see what other approach we can take for the next release. Your situation is a bit unusual, as NetWo

Re: Windscribe VPN

2 months ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

This happens because Windscribe installs its own virtual adapter. So if you have set NetWorx to monitor All Connections, the traffic is recorded twice, resulting in double usage figures. To resolve this issue: Either choose your specific network adapter under Monitored interfaces (generally this option is preferable, as it works regardless VPN being connected or not); Or choose the Windscri

Re: Handling output for multiple error messages

It would not be easy to use a regular expression here since there are many possible error messages. What you could do instead as add the following line at the beginning of your script: On Error Resume Next This will silently absorb all execution errors. You may still need to handle some errors in the code, depending on what exactly the script is doing. Alternatively, you could set up a d
