Re: How to monitor high speed connection only

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

It's quite strange that the wireless hotspot's MAC address changes between connections. I guess there may be a setting in it to turn this "randomisation" on and off. If not, unfortunately NetWorx simply has no way to differentiate between connections. Say, if your PC uses the same WiFi card to connect to either "slow unmetered" or "fast metered" access point, the

Re: Slow column resizing

7 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Turns out you are right and I failed to see the sluggish resize earlier because it only manifested itself in the release build with applied software protection. Basically the code that draws text was executed on a virtual CPU that is part of the app's protection mechanism, which would be fine if it wasn't called a hundred times per second during resize. I have removed the protection from that

As of version 2.0, WiFi Guard is a paid app. In the free demo version it shows a limited number of devices and the rest is displayed with asterisks.

Thank you for your purchase. There are two ways to enter a licence key in WiFi Guard. The first way is under the Help menu, like in most other apps: The second way is when WiFi Guard shows its notification dialog: Hope this helps. We are in Australia and July 4th isn't a holiday here, but as Australia is in a different time zone, some responses appear after a bit of a delay.

It's hard to say without seeing your settings, but per AOL's help pages: SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587 SMTP Username: YourUsername@aol.com (or @love.com, @games.com, etc.) SMTP Password: password you use to login to Mail So something like this should work.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have added Mark All/None buttons that work exactly the same as those under Remote PowerShell, Remote SNMP and so on. There is no inversion, but it's consistent throughout the user interface. You can download the latest build here.

Re: How to setup the router monitoring

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Provided you have selected the external (WAN) interface to be monitored under the SNMP settings, yes all your devices are monitored. You can test it by downloading a file from one of the devices and see if NetWorx reflects that on its graph. Please note that the computer that runs NetWorx should be on 24/7 to accurately capture usage information. If you decide to purchase the program, you w

Re: MAC address database update

7 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

At the moment this behaviour is hard-coded. Once the file becomes more than 3 months old, the app starts prompting whether you want to update it. The easiest solution in this case is to set the database file's date to the current date, which will suppress the prompts for another 3 months. This can be done by using a third-party file manager to assign the current date to oui.txt or run in a

Re: How to setup the router monitoring

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

The blank drop-down box under SNMP / WAN interface suggests that SNMP isn't available. It may be because it's not supported by the router, firewall settings, or not enabled in the router's configuration. This leaves you with the UPnP option only. In that case tick UPnP, then select your router's name and WANCommonIFC1. Selecting UPnP as recommended above should generally work, but what was

Re: How to setup the router monitoring

7 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Did you have a chance to review the router monitoring help page? Basically NetWorx supports two different technologies called SNMP and UPnP. Many routers support at least one of these, some routers support both and few support neither. If you choose the SNMP option and there is a list of available interface, it means SNMP is working. Then you may have to try choosing different interfaces unt

Re: Volume hangs but HD Emulation works

7 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

It sounds like a deadlock took place somewhere in the kernel. When that happens, a regular program that interacts with a driver hangs on I/O in progress and can't be killed until the driver returns control. Hopefully it's a Microsoft's issue and they'll resolve it before the release.

Re: Volume hangs but HD Emulation works

Thank you for reporting this issue. Unfortunately, it's pretty common that things don't work correctly in a preview build. A number of sources around the Internet also reported that build 16226 has numerous bugs. Let's wait until it becomes an official update, then if the issue is still present, we'll investigate what's going on there.

Re: How to delete the empty disk?

7 months ago, by Andrew in RAM Disk Forum

That's not really possible - if the software was completely removed, it wouldn't be able to leave an empty disk. You can check this article for how to find out whether all components of the software have been removed. Alternatively, it could be that another device (e.g. card reader or USB flash drive) has taken over the freed disk letter and is now displayed instead of the deleted RAM disk.

Re: Feature request: add script to Open Device menu

8 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

We thought about that, but then decided not to do it because: 1) For PowerShell, it simply launches powershell.exe and feeds in the script. There is really no integration and doing something like powershell.exe -File myscript.ps1 in the Applications tab is the exact equivalent. 2) For VBScript, although it's integrated into the app, a script would have to be different. There would be no Inp

Generally there is no test for that, as the RAM Disk app isn't some kind of system optimiser or performance enhancer.

Re: Where to find and how to enter the license key

8 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

This shouldn't be normally happening. If you simply install a newer version of NetWorx over an older one, it should pick up everything, including the licence. However, if you uninstall it first, or start using a portable version instead of the installed one or vice versa, it may create a new database and thus require a licence to be re-entered. Hope this helps.

Re: How to recover lost data after upgrade

8 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

It depends on how it happened. Normally, if you just install the latest version over an older version, all data is kept. There are two common mistakes during update that lead to a loss of data: If you uninstalled the older version before installing the update, a clean-up was performed and the database was deleted. For this case, if there is no backup, I am afraid there is no way to restore

Re: Convert Networx Data / Database to other file formats

I am not sure that is even possible. Wireshark expects a set of network packets captured from a network interface, while all NetWorx keeps is statistical data, i.e. date, time and number of bytes transferred. How do you expect this to work?

Re: Saving results to XML with filter applied loses hidden results

8 months ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

This isn't a bug, rather an implementation detail. If we change it in a way that filters are not considered when saving, it would be impossible to produce filtered XML datasets, say if someone wanted to save only database servers to one XML file. I'll check if we can add an option to include the filtered-out items when saving to XML. UPDATE: The latest build now offers a choice of what
