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

• CurrPorts
• NetworkTrafficView
• LiveTcpUdpWatch

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...;-)

The screenshot is of the "IP Scanner" part of the program not of the main windows. The IP Scanner is only a "tool" in the app!

WinInfoView runs exclusively under Vista / Win7 / Win8, as noted in the System Requirements.
For the diehard WinXP users among us, Nirsoft maintains two equivalent wireless monitoring utilities :

WirelessNetworkWatcher: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2128
WirelessNetView: http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1632

Very happy: I just used this program to help track down the least-used channel in an area with a LOT of wireless connections and a lot of interference. This saved a lot of time, effort and energy (including electricity as multiple devices keep rebroadcasting their data).

I was also impressed by the amount of data it pulled from the various WIFI services in the area. Great program.

Very helpful program, was able to find issue causing problems :)
