LiveTcpUdpWatch's "readme.txt" includes a noteworthy discussion about the fine points
of three similar, yet subtly distinct tools :

• CurrPorts
• NetworkTrafficView
• LiveTcpUdpWatch

__philippe on 2019-01-10 10:37

LiveTcpUdpWatch v1.12
Handy network traffic analysis tool, finely honing with age, merely lacking :

• "Remote Hostname" column, to pair with existing "Remote (IP) Address"
•  ICMP protocol capture capability

Would Nir oblige? Stay tuned till next episode...;-)

@ bamanzi: Thanks ... and updated ;)

WinSCP 5.5.5 (5.5.5 Build 4605) has been just released.

webfork on 2017-10-12 21:03

I've been a huge FileZilla fan since it came out back in 2001, but got a chance to test it today and WinSCP is amazing. I was able to resolve an issue with WebDAV via that program that no other program seemed capable of.

@Cattleya: Make sure you download the zip package, because the installer does the following:
"The kernel mode driver used by CPU-Z is installed on the system, that avoids to install / remove it at every run."
The portable version leaves no driver behind, just tested it.

@kc: I used to do sysadmin for a small non-profit org. 7 pc's and 2 printers, no big deal. I carried all my tools on a pendrive. Off course I had admin-rights, but this is a typical scenario a lot of us are in, so it's not entirely useless, portable is the way to go for sysadmins ;)

CPUZ is old, tired and practically useless. It's heyday was about six years ago. Speccy is a must for today.

appsuser on 2019-09-03 23:47

The customized versions for different board manufacturers (on the home page) are also portable (download the zip package). The customized versions include the manufacturer's logo as a window background and theme.

Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.
