Re: BitComet traffic is not recorded when "Ignore LAN traffic" is checked

2 days ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Generally it should not matter what router is used or what you are connected to. The TDI/WFP drivers work at a higher level in the system. Try uninstalling NetWorx and then reinstall it with the TDI driver instead. Microsoft started deprecating TDI only in Windows 8, so chances are it will work fine on Windows 7. If it still does not, I am afraid we can't help you with this specific issue give

Sorry it seems to work fine here, even on Windows 7 32-bit, as you can see below. I am not sure what could be causing the issue for you, but given the vanishingly small market share of 32-bit instances of Windows 7, we probably will not be able to justify chasing it.

Sorry this is not reproducible. See the screen shot below: it shows that the correct data usage and speed were recorded. Please make sure you are using the latest NetWorx version and the WFP driver (not TDI).

Re: How to get RAM disk in Windows "Resource Monitor"

7 days ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Yes, that's pretty much it: With the HDD emulation option off, a RAM disk is a standalone volume (like a USB flash drive) and it's not available under Performance Monitor or Disk Management. With the HDD emulation option on, a complete disk with partitions is emulated and thus can be accessed in many Windows tools.

Re: Additional cache folders

11 days ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

You are right, the Cache Relocator utility only moves the page cache that contains HTML, CSS, images and scripts from web-pages. Like you pointed out, there are other cache folders, e.g. GPUCache and Code Cache, but the amount of data in those seems small, and it is unclear whether anything could break if they are relocated. It's of course OK to try moving other folders, if you are an expe

We can convert the rules for you from the old .XML to the new .DB format. However, due to the differences between the versions some objects will not be carried over, namely bridges and usage records will not be converted. If you would like us to that, please submit a ticket and attach your XML file. Alternatively you can recreate your ruleset from scratch as it's now possible to have a more co

Re: Free NetWorx 5.5.5 slows my Internet after the latest Windows update

14 days ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

It is probably because you have the Ignore local traffic within the LAN option on. In this mode all data is processed by a special driver that filters out LAN traffic. You can either turn this option off, or try the latest NetWorx version (which is free trial for 30 days) as the driver received a number of updates during the years since version 5.5.5. If you do decide to try the latest versio

Thank you for confirming the issue, we will investigate this further. Unfortunately, it is hard to estimate the time frame and the outcome, as Apple can be quite slow and unhelpful in resolving such matters. So, if you need WiFi Guard urgently, please let us know and we'll issue a temporary licence key for the DMG version for you.

Re: VLAN info Alactel 6400

29 days ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

I guess the switch either doesn't provide VLAN information in its SNMP tables, or it does so in a way the Port Mapper doesn't understand (we support two locations: vmMembershipEntry and dot1qVlanCurrentEntry). If you could run the snmpwalk tool against your switch, open a support ticket and attach the snmpwalk's output, we may be able to see what happens there and advise further. We have al

Re: Enhancing multi-clause filters

4 weeks ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

That's a known issue with the filters. Basically when filters were first introduced, they were single-clause and so was the mechanism that manages them. Later on, the filters were expanded to multi-clause, but the managing mechanism essentially only works with single-clause filters. Thanks for drawing our attention to this, we will probably redesign the filtering system to allow editing the fi

Great idea, we have added a search box under Options - Applications, Virtual Columns, Nmap Integration and all of the Remote [...] tools. It's more tricky with the visible columns due to its implementation though, so that's left for later. You can download the latest preliminary builds here.

Re: Corrupt image

5 weeks ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

When creating an image file, the default cluster size is calculated and used per Microsoft's recommendations. It's not related to corruption in any way. If a different cluster size is required, you could simply format the disk with the Windows built-in function or the format command and specify the desired size. There are two ways of doing that: If the image file is not being used in a RAM d

Re: How to release locked memory

5 weeks ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Unmounting a RAM Disk is supposed to release all allocated memory. If it does not, something went wrong in that process. My advice would be to let unmount go as long as it needs (even if it takes up to a minute). If you terminate the application during the operation, memory leaks are possible, in which case the only solution would be a reboot. If you have a reproducible case, i.e. this happ

Re: Corrupt image

Occasionally image files can get damaged. We have been unable to determine the exact cause as it seems to be random, though the usual suspects are antivirus/security products and system cleaners (like CCleaner - it's a known combination that potentially causes the corruption). To recover data you can try a third-party disk mount utility that supports entering an offset, like OSFMount, in which

Re: Options for unforeseen RAM disk capacity overflow

6 weeks ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Well, if you are specifically after backing some of a RAM Disk's space with a hard drive, we don't implement it for two reasons: It's quite difficult to implement from a technical perspective; and It's already part of the OS and it's called paging, or "page-filing". There is simply no point in duplicating that mechanism. Let's take a look at the example with your PC: You have 3

Re: Options for unforeseen RAM disk capacity overflow

6 weeks ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Unfortunately there isn't a way to dynamically manage RAM space with our product. Some other products feature dynamic memory allocation, for example, ImDisk. When the corresponding option is used, memory is allocated in blocks as files are written to the disk. The downside to that approach is it's slower and may result in disk write errors if no free space is available.

That would be because Microsoft has changed how one of Windows kernel functions operate; it happened earlier, in update 1809. This issue is described in this article and the solution is to update to the latest RAM Disk version.

Re: Slow boot and shutdown times

6 weeks ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

That is way too long for a regular RAM disk. However, if you are using an image file of such a large size, that sounds about right. Let's say your SSD supports a sustained read rate of 300 MB/s. Then 192 x 1024 MB / 300 = 655 seconds, or nearly 11 minutes just to read the image file. After that some more time is spent during the memory allocation and initialisation. It is possible to create

Re: How to scan public IPs, VPNs, proxy and rogue gateways in the LAN

6 weeks ago, by Andrew in WiFi Guard Forum

From your questions, it is not very clear what you mean. A LAN range is usually one of these: 10.x.x.x, 172.16.x.x or 192.168.x.x. These IP addresses are private and not routable, so there are no public IP addresses in a LAN range. Scanning for open VPN services would require you to probe some TCP/UDP ports, which are specific to every VPN type. This can be done with a different application of
