Re: How to close the graph via right click and remove its buttons

12 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Thank you for your feedback. We have added two new menu items as shown below. One closes the graph, the other shows/hides the toolbar. Note that the 'Close' item will only be shown when the graph does not have a title bar. We have also updated the app to show the Y-axis as follows: On the right for a right-to-left graph. On the left for a left-to-right graph. Please download the fresh b

Re: Graph fading on mouseover

12 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

The fade feature is not available in version 7 due to cross-platform limitations. If you absolutely need the graph to fade away when mouse is over it, you will need to downgrade to version 6. However, if you don't require the fading per se, but rather wish to be able to quickly show and hide the graph, there is a simple solution in v7: set up a global hotkey to show/hide the graph any time you

Re: NetGenius shows different download and upload speed compared to NetWorx

12 days ago, by Ann in NetGenius Forum

It depends on how you have configured NetWorx. If it is set to ignore LAN traffic and monitor apps, it may interfere with NetGenius monitoring. If you want to use both NetWorx and NetGenius at the same time, then NetWorx should be monitoring your network adapter rather than apps. Specifically, this means: In NetWorx v6 and below, the "Ignore local traffic within the LAN" option must

Re: Suggestion: Black & white menubar icon for macOS

16 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

That's a good point. Thank you for the suggestion. We have just updated the app so that its menu bar icon is now greyscale and a little smaller, to match the rest of macOS icons. Please download the new build and enjoy the fully monochrome menu bar.

Re: Excluding certain times from being counted

24 days ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

That can be easily done. You can mark the 3am to 6am hours either as 'unmetered' or 'off-peak', depending on your personal preferences. The 'unmetered' times are not shown in reports (but are still recorded), while the 'off-peak' periods are recorded and shown separately from peak times. You can change this setting at any time, and it will update your reports accordingly.

Error when choosing to monitor an adapter - Fixed

4 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Thank you for reporting this issue. The multiplying Hyper-V adapters probably stem from the fact that the system assigns them new IDs upon each boot, so they keep adding up. This is not an issue as such, but we will look into it later. The crash however is related to a recent code change and we have just fixed it. Please download the latest build, install over your current installation, and

Re: Adding usage numbers in the Reset window

4 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Thanks for reporting this issue. We have just re-tested it, and it worked fine when a network adapter was monitored, but not when NetWorx was monitoring apps. That's likely to be your case and it was a bug indeed. It happened because we needed to create a "dummy" app record in the database. Now a reset operation will create a dummy record as if the reset numbers were downloaded/uploaded

Re: Local PowerShell

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

This can be easily done with a custom VB Script that launches the command and captures its output into a column. Simply do the following: Open Remote Scripting via Options - Remote Scripting. Create a new item and load the below script. This gives you a lot of flexibility with launching any console command and with post-processing its output as required. In the Network Scanner application you

Re: Second graph opens on icon click

5 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

As you may be aware, version 7 is a total rewrite of the product that has been in existence for 20 years. The option to make the graph transparent by hovering the mouse pointer has not been implemented (yet). If there is more demand for it from our users, we will implement it, but otherwise we'd like to keep the product as simple as possible. From your description, it sounds like you wish to ke

Re: Local PowerShell

Could you please clarify how you'd like this to work? At the moment, you can add this command to the list of applications (Options - Applications), and it can then be executed against any host name (via Open Device context menu), as shown below. Did you want something different?

Re: Find out which accounts have local administrative rights on each PC

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

It is hard to tell what's causing this in your case. This particular feature merely calls a Windows API function NetLocalGroupEnum, and for some reason it fails on many of your machines. We could add some code to display what error it returns, but it will likely return something like 'access is denied' without an explanation why. If you have WMI enabled and working on your computers, you could

Re: How to resize taskbar icon

5 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Yes, to make the extension resizeable you simply need to right-click an empty space on the Windows taskbar and unlock it by unchecking "Lock the taskbar" setting, as shown below. After you have done the resizing, you can lock the taskbar again, if you like. If you find that the extension doesn't get smaller than a certain size, please download the latest build where some improvements

Re: Missing "all connections" option

The new version monitors specific interfaces and there is no 'all interfaces' option. You can select the ones you want to monitor in the list of adapters if you go the Settings, then Main tab, then press the Settings... button.

Re: Unable to connect to HP switch

Does the HP switch actually have SNMP running and configured? You can try a third-party console utility, SNMP Walk, to see if you can get any output from that switch. If not, there may be a switch configuration issue.

Re: Update-checking link for proxy configuration

5 weeks ago, by Ann in Network Scanner Forum

It depends how your proxy is configured. If you are using a transparent proxy where any outgoing connection to port 80 is routed via the proxy, then it should work. The Network Scanner uses a standard HTTP GET to obtain the latest version number: GET /products/networkscanner/version.txt?ver=8.1.4&random=8125781 HTTP/1.1 Host: www.softperfect.com Connection: close HTTP/1.1 200 OK Da

Re: Clarity/contrast of tray icon histogram

6 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Thank you for your feedback. The poor contrast may be due to the choice of colours. If you choose a different colour scheme as shown below, it should be clearer. You can also set your own colours, to make the combination look as you feel best. The reason the app was reporting 0.0 megabits while the notification area icon was showing activity was due to Windows always sending some data in the b

Re: Suggestion: Network adapter selection and renaming

6 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

Thank you for your feedback, those are good points! We have just updated the app so that it displays the graph menu out of the submenu. By the way, you can also set a global hotkey in Settings - Main for quicker access to show/hide the graph. We have also added a new Rename right-click menu option that can be used to rename any adapter in the list, which is accessible by going to Setting

Re: Font setting for taskbar extension

You certainly don't need to go back to version 6 for that. Simply click the Star button on the graph toolbar. This will make the graph to show up automatically next time your computer starts.

Re: Refresh button for Usage window

6 weeks ago, by Ann in NetGenius Forum

Thank you for the feedback. There is no "Refresh" button as we strive to keep application interfaces uncluttered whenever possible. Because one day is the smallest interval, for which precise usage numbers are displayed, any frequent pressing of a "Refresh" button most likely wouldn't reveal any significant change in those numbers. And for an occasional refresh, if the user

Re: NetWorx version 7

6 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

That's a good point! We have just removed the outline, and the graph should look a lot better on Windows 10/11. Please download a fresh copy from NetWorx page and install it over. Then reboot and the annoying border should be gone. After that, you can select the graph background colour that matches your taskbar, and the graph area will appear seamlessly integrated.

Re: NetWorx version 7

The graph transparency is unfortunately incompatible with the anti-aliased drawing that is used in v7. As the graph lines and text are now drawn with antialiasing and blended with white background by default, it all looks good when the window behind is white, but otherwise it does not:

Re: Network connection indicator in the taskbar

7 weeks ago, by Ann in NetWorx Forum

NetWorx does not have custom colour-changing icons for connection status changes. However, there already is a similar built-in feature in Windows. When the connection goes offline, Windows displays a special icon in the notification area. It does not have the exact colours you want, but you still can quickly tell if your connection is online/offline by simply glancing at that icon:

Re: Cannot create a RAM disk due to "insufficient system resources"

8 weeks ago, by Ann in RAM Disk Forum

Looking at your Task Manager figures, the issue is most likely due the Commit Charge getting too close to the Commit Limit. In your case, the commit charge (the total memory already requested by all applications) is 96 GB, and the commit limit (the total memory that can possibly be requested) is 102 GB. As RAM disks are fully allocated within the physical RAM and never paged out, adding a 7 GB
