DzejPy: verified. However, if you just click "Ok got it" in that image, it goes away and doesn't come back. Think we can let the adware notice slide for the moment.

Use .xml config instead of .ini.

I was using v5.4.8 with netscan.ini config file. The v6.0.5 ignored the netscan.ini and created netscan.xml in C:\Users\\Documents folder. Switches /xml or /ini did not help. I had to copy netscan.xml from Documents to the folder where netscan.exe was, to make the settings portable (window title should have "[PORTABLE MODE]" appended to it).

WakeMeOnLan v1.71 Updated

Checker on 8 May 2015
  • 334KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 May 2015
  • Suggested by Checker

WakeMeOnLan allows you to easily turn on one or more computers remotely by sending Wake-on-LAN (WOL) packet over the network. This will return machines from a standby or turned-off state, useful for administrators or to save electricity until resources are needed. WakeMeOnLan also allows you to scan your network and collect the MAC addresses of all online computers. This information can be exported to a file.

Additionally, an available command-line interface can turn on a computer using a computer name, IP address, or the MAC address of the remote network card.

NetWorx v5.4.0 Updated

Checker on 12 May 2015
  • 12MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 May 2015
  • Suggested by wolssiloa

SoftPerfect NetWorx helps collect bandwidth usage data and measure the speed of your Internet or any other network connection. NetWorx can help you identify possible sources of network problems, ensure that you do not exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious network activity characteristic of malicious programs/hacks.

The program allows you to monitor all your network connections or a specific network connection (such as Ethernet or PPP) only. The incoming and outgoing traffic is represented on a line chart and logged to a file, so that you can always view statistics about your daily, weekly and monthly bandwidth usage and dialup duration. Reports can be exported to a variety of formats, such as HTML, MS Word and Excel, for further analysis.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8

  3. Launch networx.exe
Note: Some archive managers (notably PeaZip) don't show the 32-bit and 64-bit folders. In that case, the smaller versions of the files are the 32-bit versions.
What's new?
  • Added Y-axis labels rounding to good-looking values on the graph, e.g. 10K, 20K, 30K, 40K, 50K.
  • Added logarithmic scale on the graph to enable showing very small and very large values together.
  • Added a monthly total in daily auto reports and HTML reports are sent inline, not as attachment.
  • Added SNMPv3 support for monitoring the router (see the hidden settings).

There's a bug where the "tray info" appears in a loop and the only way to remedy is to close it and restart. I also had it freeze on me and I had to kill it via the task manager; I lost about a weeks worth of statistics...

ChipsNHotSauce on 2011-06-15 20:08

...and with that said; I've tried others listed on this site and their is no comparison, this one is tops low resource/well designed interface.

Keeps getting better and better. Better than most of the paid bandwidth monitors I've tried

Confirmed. Thanks.

Changed license to Freeware (ad supported).

Pretty decent PDF viewer, just the kind of lightweight app I was looking for. Unfortunately there is no 2-page face-to-face only layout view, as the 'face' layout it has scrolls down including any pages below. No idea why such an extra layout isn't included, as it's a better way to view books especially.

Doesn`t work half the time, keeps saying the epub file is corrupt. Yet, they open in Sumatra and just about any other epub viewer with no issues.
