Re: How to resolve MAC to IP address and get host name from DNS

1 year ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

It is not really possible to resolve a MAC address to an IP address; only the reverse - an IP address can be resolved to a MAC address. This can be done by scanning the entire network range to build a map of "IP address = MAC address" and then perform a reverse lookup. That's something Switch Port Mapper is supposed to do, but a few conditions must be met: In Switch Port Mapper se

Re: Suggestion: Refreshing Virtual Columns

Update: the new builds automatically update dependent regular columns when rescanning virtual columns and vice versa.

Re: Authenticate with remote PC's local account

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

It really depends on the type of the scan. Some, such as WMI, should directly accept credentials like UserName or ComputerName\UserName with a password. Some don't allow authentication at all, and always assume the current user that is running the application. Is there a specific scan where you want to use local authentication?

Re: Suggestion: Refreshing Virtual Columns

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

That's a great idea, thank you. It should actually work both ways: When rescanning a virtual column, update all columns referenced from that virtual column. When rescanning a regular column, update all virtual columns that refer to it. I will post a link to the updated build tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Re: Microsoft Office and Chrome installed on RAMdisk

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

To be frank, there is no point in installing either software on a RAM Disk. It will generally not speed things up. Instead you can use a RAM disk for temporary data, including Chrome's cache. Please see this article for ideas: How to increase PC performance with a RAM disk.

Re: Extract usage information for specific IP address

1 year ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This is a rather specific report and instead of having it implemented in the software itself, it's possible to extract the data directly from the database. You can use an SQL statement like this: SELECT DAY, R.NAME, SRC_ADDR_VALUE, SUM(RECV_BYTES) AS BYTES_IN, SUM(SEND_BYTES) AS BYTES_OUT FROM DAY_USAGE DU JOIN STREAM S ON DU.STREAM_ID = S.ID JOIN RULE R ON S.RULE_ID = R.ID WHERE SRC_

Re: Unable to run NetWorx in Ubuntu

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

NetWorx requires the TopIcons GNOME extension to be installed as shown below. Unfortunately there is no sync setting in the Linux or macOS versions. These are work-in-progress and are different to the Windows version which has been in development for much longer than the versions for macOS and Linux.

Re: Setup on home network to manage Internet usage

In addition to the manual, we have this article ithat may help in your case: Can NetWorx monitor all my devices (iPad, laptops, smart TV)? Basically if your devices are not Windows-based computers, then you will be only monitoring combined usage without per-device breakdown, and only if the router supports the necessary SNMP or UPnP functions. Unfortunately there is no simple way to monitor

Yes, if you are using the installed edition (not portable). It can display your download and upload speeds in the taskbar, along with with a small chart: To turn this feature on, right-click the task bar and choose Toolbars - NetWorx Desk Band. You may also need to unlock the taskbar to resize the graph. To do so, untick the Lock the taskbar menu item, resize the graph and lock the task

Re: Extracting the Log to a text file

Absolutely, just run it like this to clear the log: sqlite3 "C:\ProgramData\SoftPerfect\Bandwidth Manager\Bandwidth Manager.DB" "DELETE FROM EVENT" Alternatively, if you only want to remove log records older than a week: sqlite3 "C:\ProgramData\SoftPerfect\Bandwidth Manager\Bandwidth Manager.DB" "DELETE FROM EVENT WHERE MESSAGE_TIME < datetime('now',

That's a good idea, thank you for suggesting it. We will add it tomorrow and post a link to the update.

Re: Extracting the Log to a text file

1 year ago, by Andrew in Bandwidth Manager Forum

There isn't really anything difficult in working with the database and you can extract data from it with simple SQL statements. For example, to convert the list of events to a text file, try the following: Download the SQLite command line shell and extract sqlite3.exe. In a command prompt execute something like this: sqlite3 -csv "C:\ProgramData\SoftPerfect\Bandwidth Manager\Bandwid

Re: Shared folder security information

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

It is not clear from this screenshot whether it's a blank row between devices or between shared folders. The former indicates the application was unable to retrieve share security information for a specific device. The latter indicates the same for a specific shared source. Generally if you are interested in the security settings of your shares, I recommend the free ShareEnum utility from Micr

Re: SNMP query L3 devices like Checkpoint firewalls

1 year ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

It turned out that Checkpoint devices didn't like when Max-Repetitions (batch size) was set to 100 in SNMPv3 requests. When reduced to 50 it started working. We have released version 2.0.11 that fixes this issue, and as a bonus correctly handles IPv6 addresses received from routers. Please download the updated Port Mapper from its home page and let me know how it works for you.

Re: SNMP query L3 devices like Checkpoint firewalls

1 year ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

We have managed to reproduce the problem by installing RHEL 5.2, same kernel v2.6.18 that most Checkpoint devices are running and the issue is now clear. It actually works with SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c, but not SNMPv3. Please allow a couple of days for us to investigate.

Re: SNMP query L3 devices like Checkpoint firewalls

1 year ago, by Andrew in Switch Port Mapper Forum

Generally reading ARP entries should work on any compatible device, including Checkpoint firewalls. We try to extract ARP data from three SNMP views: ipNetToPhysicalTable ipNetToMediaTable atTable It's pretty strange that you can walk ipNetToPhysicalTable, while the Port Mapper fails to do so, granted the connection credentials are correct. Let me see what we can do about that.

Re: Issues with freezing and saving to images after upgrading from Windows 7 to 10

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

From what you have described it looks like a kernel deadlock, i.e. there are two processes mutually waiting for each other. It does not necessarily take place in the RAM Disk's code - it could as well be any other product that installs a kernel driver, e.g. an antivirus or firewall. While Microsoft offers tools to detect deadlocks as described in this article, those are not easy for a regular use

Re: Tracking data usage of a specific application

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Once this setting has been enabled, you should see a list of applications and their usage on the Applications tab in Usage Report, as shown below. In the default configuration only top 10 applications by usage are shown in that list. To see more, simply change the quantity in the hidden settings. There is a parameter named Top applications and web-sites, which you can set to a desired number,

Re: Scripting the Network Scanner for multiple subnets and locations

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

There is a couple of ways, depending on whether you want to run the network scanner interactively or not. If you want to use the GUI, you can simply create multiple configuration files, say one file for each location. Each configuration file can define subnets specific to that location as well as any other settings, e.g. user credentials. So when you are on site A, you can load configuration A

There is no export function for that, but depending on your needs you can extract this info directly from the database file. WiFi Guard uses a standard SQLite3 database located in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\WiFi Guard, which can be loaded into any SQLite management tool and you can see the data you need in the ACTIVITY table:

Re: How to access details of remote computers with WMI

1 year ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

If you are using WMI to access these details, domainname\username is the correct credential syntax to use. However there can be a number of reasons why WMI connectivity is not operational. There is a built-in tool called wbemtest that you can use to establish a WMI connection to one of your computers. Please see this article for details. Most likely wbemtest will fail as well, in which case

Re: Connection Emulator and ICA Protocol

1 year ago, by Andrew in Connection Emulator Forum

As far as I understand the ICA protocol runs natively over TCP port 1494. So you could simply create a filter to apply to TCP connections only and to port 1494 and simulate connectivity issues like latency and dropouts. The tools you mentioned are usually browser extensions or proxy servers. Our Connection Emulator is different as it uses a network driver to intercept all network connections.

Re: Speed Meter exported data units. Scheduled speed tests stopping

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

1. The figures exported from the Speed Meter to a file are either bytes/sec or bits/sec, depending on what you set in Settings - Graph - Transfer Rate Unit. In other words, the values are plain values, not converted to KB or MB. If you divide by 1024 twice, you will get the same number as displayed. The reason the values are not converted is to enable charting, say if you wanted to build a MS Exc

Re: SCCM Restart error

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

Some applications do not work correctly with standalone volumes, which can be seen as I/O errors or simply the inability to access a RAM disk, which seems to be the case here. Try enabling the Hard Disk Emulation option in the RAM disk settings. This option emulates a complete HDD with partitions indistinguishable from a real device. The downside is that there is an extra layer of emulation t

Re: What driver to install: WFP, TDI or none?

Both TDI and WFP drivers can exclude local traffic, but WFP support on systems below Windows 10 was rather poor. We recommend to use WFP on Windows 10 and TDI on earlier versions of Windows.

Re: How to mount boot-disk automatically after the computer restarts

1 year ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It is supposed to mount automatically and remember its last mount state. In other words, if you restarted with the disk M:\ mounted, it should be automatically remounted at next boot; and if you restarted with the disk unmounted, it will not be mounted automatically. Unfortunately I can't tell what is the exact reason of not mounting in your case, but please try the following: Try a differen

Re: Issue with Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite

1 year ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Most likely it's a bug in the router's UPnP implementation. The monitoring is implemented by polling GetTotalBytesReceived and GetTotalBytesSent available in WANCommonInterfaceConfig. We are aware of two common bugs in routers: Some routers use signed 32-bit integers rather than 32-bit unsigned integers that the standard prescribes. This results in negative numbers being reported after first
