Re: Using column values in RegEx

I am not sure if I understood you correctly, but you if you are using a script similar to the one you posted in the other thread and your show mac address-table looks like this: then you could do something like this: 'Return port assignments objTelnet.Send("show mac address-table" & vbCrLf) 'Wait for shell prompt (when command finishes) data = objTelnet.Recv("#&q

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

3 days ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

Perhaps you could solely use Remote Scripting to run something like this? Set doc = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument" doc.async = false doc.load "http:// your-url-to-XML-here" If doc.parseError <> 0 Then Output.Write doc.parseError.reason Else Set nodes = doc.selectNodes("/root/some/expression" For Each node In nodes Output.Write "Selec

Re: Virtual columns and Remote scripting

3 days ago, by Andrew in Network Scanner Forum

I am afraid in the current implementation Virtual Columns can't be used in Remote Scripting. Since Virtual Columns depend on data in other columns, they are calculated after all other columns, including Remote Scripting. Otherwise it could create interdependencies that can't be resolved, i.e. a Virtual Column refers to a Remote Scripting column and vice versa.

Actually there isn't any problem with including virtual columns. Please try the latest builds which should allow you to select virtual columns.

Added in the latest preliminary build. Now you can choose almost any set of columns to associate friendly names with. Just a couple of things worth mentioning: It was a non-trivial change that affected a lot of code. Please report any bugs you find. Mapping column values to friendly names is done before applying regular expressions. In other words, regular expressions will have no effect on

We generally publish a new version once there are enough changes. In the meantime, you can download the latest preliminary build here. It should now correctly save data on shutdown. Kindly give it a go and let me know if it does.

Re: Data is not collected data if the user is logged off

14 days ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

That's basically how NetWorx was designed. It runs as a regular application when a user logs on. Otherwise it does not run, i.e. it is not a service. If you are looking for monitoring server bandwidth, a different product called Bandwidth Manager may be more suitable. It runs as a service, allows you to define a variety of monitoring rules, and if necessary configure bandwidth caps and quotas.

Re: VBScript for returning the last reboot time

This script obviously connects to the a computer's WMI subsystem and parses an output of the following expression: SELECT LastBootUpTime FROM Win32_OperatingSystem Normally that returns a string like this in the yyyymmddHHMMSS.mmmmmmsUUU format (see CIM_DATETIME description): 20190104140000.111597+600 So to figure out why the script fails at a specific machine, run the above WMI query again

Re: Regex replacement support

The latest release didn't support regex replacement, but you are making a good point here. We've just added replacement expression support in version 7.1.9 which can be downloaded from the Network Scanner home page. For your particular task, use this as the regular expression: ([0-9A-F]{2}).? and this as the replacement expression: \1 Sample output:

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

We investigated the issue, and there seems to have been a change in the development environment used to build NetWorx. Older development environment that produced version 5.5.5 was okay, but the newer environment that produced the current version changed the way things work. We have fixed the issue, and will include the fix in the next update of NetWorx.

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

20 days ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

To have the NetWorx app started with Windows you would need to tick Load on Windows startup in the main settings. Regarding not saving usage data on Windows shutdown, that's because Windows 10 kills the app on shutdown without notifying it. Normally NetWorx saves its usage records once a minute and on shutdown notification. However if killed without notification, the app may lose up to 1 minut

Re: Syncing data between multiple hard drives

I am not quite sure what you are trying to do there, but if you are using multiple independent hard drives and want NetWorx to keep its data out of those drives, there are basically two solutions: Use a portable version of NetWorx (simpler) Just create a folder on a thumb drive and unpack a portable copy of NetWorx in it. Regardless of how NetWorx is launched, the data will always be kept on

Re: Setting up a very fast disk for hundreds of thousands of files

I have done a few of tests and you are right: NTFS seems to be much faster at creating large quantities of small files. Reading and deleting speeds were similar on both the file systems. Having said that, it's a good idea to place files in different folders with ~1000 files in each folder, see this and this discussion. All in all, I recommend the following: Create a NTFS-formatted image of t

I'd recommend to have an image based RAM disk formatted as exFAT, but it's difficult to tell without knowing more about your requirements. Could you please tell me more about your usage scenario for better advice: Where those files come from (i.e. created by a certain program or copied from another drive)? Is the loss of those files acceptable, or you need to preserve them all between sessions

Usually there are two things that could cause problems with saving to an image file: Antivirus Products There may be another process (usually an antivirus) that attempts to open the file at the same time.

It is unfortunately unclear why the list was blank when using Npcap in WinPCap compatibility mode. Nonetheless we've just updated the Network Scanner so it can use Npcap directly, without the compatibility layer. Here is a screen shot of Npcap on Windows 7 x64 without WinPCap compatibility enabled: The preliminary build can be downloaded here.

Re: Display all LAN shares a network user can access

It is better to logon as the user whose access rights you want to check, like you did. Then on the Shares tab tick Scan for shared resources and Check for write access. Once the scan has finished, the share icons will represent what the user can do with them. Basically three options here: the user can only read files from the share, the user can read and write files to the share, the user

Re: Networx is not running after the last Win 10 update

2 months ago, by Andrew in NetWorx Forum

Technically WinPCap is not required for NetWorx to work, so if you don't have other programs that use it, it makes sense to completely remove WinPCap. This can be done by opening an administrator command prompt and typing the following: sc delete npf This will deregister the WinPCap driver and it's best to reboot after this. Then you can delete the remaining files by typing in the same a

Re: Networx is not running after the last Win 10 update

This suggests that there may be an issue that prevents NetWorx from completing its initialisation. My best bet would be that there may be a broken installation of WinPCap on your system. When WinPCap is installed, NetWorx attempts to use it, but things can go awry if the installed instance of WinPCap is not functional. If you have WinPCap listed as an installed application on your computer,

That message comes from the taskbar extension that displays usage information directly in the taskbar. The extension depends on the actual NetWorx app, which needs to be running for the extension to function. So is the NetWorx app running? That is: Is there networx.exe process running? Is there a notification area icon? Can you access application features?
