Are we the only ones with the problem? I'm still getting an empty
transparent window.

Windows XP Pro SP3, IBM ThinkPad T21, Nvidia Quadro NVS280, Nvidia drivers version 175.

Can you still register this software if you install it after the download time expires? It's just that I was not near my pc when I downloaded it.

I liked this program when it was a giveaway in September and am glad the update is a giveaway today.

For a great freeware alternative, although it may be too complex for some, I also recommend "The Dude" by Mikrotik.

As others have stated, small footprint using few system resources... Installs quickly on Vista Home Premium...

Starting Everquest, it reveals all the ports and launch programs used in the entire initialization process, but once the game had opened access to a server for play, the information was no longer on the display even though a connection was active...

The TCP connection count always registers 20 connections, when I know there are more than that active. Using a-squared HiJackFree I can count 29 active TCP connections and the names between the two do not totally match up...

The UDP connection count seems to be zero all the time, but I also have UDP connections that show in a-squared HiJackFree...

In addition, I can check connections via my firewall and the accuracy of NetStat Agent isn't quite what it should be...

It is a nifty utility and displays some cool information, but don't expect it to reveal everything about your connections...

Of course, this could just be how it interfaces with Vista, but will have to install it on a XP system or a 2000 system to verify...

Regards -

#63 no need to remove previous versions as both use same registration data. Most critical issue with activation is Activate.exe must run as an administrator as it sets global registry key values rather than per user key values.

An excellent tool. Probably not for every user, but this program shows a lot of information, and in a nice clear way - a very nice GUI. The website is also nicely laid out. Its refreshing to see a developer put effort into a program and their website.

Overall, a handy program to have tucked away.

#63. I did not uninstall my previous version. Installing this package merely upgraded the original to the newest version. Same icon in the same place, new version.

I loved NetStat when I got it on a previous GOTD. This one looks even smoother in operation so far. XP/SP3.

On Vista 32 Home Premium: installed fine and activated fine, even over the top of the previous version. But every time I ran it it always said it was a 30 day trial. Uninstalled and re-installed with same results. BUT I found that if program is run As Administrator it runs as registered to Giveawayoftheday and if I don't run it as administrator then it is a 30 day trial. Hope this helps!

Great program for monitoring your network.

The version offered today is newer so I will download it to update.

Would like to have the RR (Record Route) option available as extra info for the trace command, and maybe some netbios name lookup support, but other than that, this is a nice little tool for casual monitoring of connections to and from your computer.

Don't worry if you get "This is a 30-day Trial." Just delete
that and go into the Folder that was installed --

-- in there, find the Owl and double click on it. The
entire program should open up for you.

Hi #36,
The FAt32 may well be the problem factor.
The code 1019 is IIRC usually associated with an ReadEventLog error - but errors of this nature can occur for quite a number of reasons - one of which is if active maleware is residing in your pc.

Before trying to install NetStat Agent again, it may be wise to run something like A-Squared dialler, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, AVG or any reliable spy searcher - just to ensure that nothing "dangerous" is indeed lurking down there. Then run your chosen registry cleaner.

Perhaps a bit deeper.....
Since it may be simply due to a damaged file or .dll, also check your hard drive for checksum errors - an often forgotten culprit. This happens when the header check sum does not match the actual computed checksum but TBH this is more often associated with Startup Problems - often in BIOS.
If yours problem is simply a broken file problem, then just re-install - after a registry cleanout and that should hopefully do the trick.
........

#48 you said: "Even after reading the first 47 comments, I’m still confused. Can anyone tell me if it help me manage the wireless network inside my house that 5 computers are on? Thanks in advance for the help".

#48 From just what you wrote above, I doubt if it will be of much real use to you. It supplies lots of info (much of which can be found in a good firewall & a comptent searcher) but TBH, NetStat Agent (and similar progs) are designed mainly for people who usually "require" those tools so that they can keep tabs on processes such as the traffic via TCP and UDP connections and issues connected with computer transmission in/out. Network Administrators like this type of app.
It could be argueed that a general pc user with pc viral/spyware protection in place does not actually NEED this program while others will happily utilise its fair range of tools as it can provide information that they may require. The more adverturous will want to try it out - regardless.
For some people, it will just add further extra (sometimes unused) information therebye serving little purpose.
Only in trying it, can you make up your mind if it is of real use to you. As I indicated earlier - read the HELP files as this will give a good clear indication of what this program is all about.
Hope this helps.
Good luck #36 & #48

I'm definitely on an admin account. I have 3 PCs, all running WinXP SP 2 with basically all the same programs, same AV, etc. No firewall (behind a NAT router), same permissions and settings for all programs, etc. The program installed perfect on 2 of them, but still not on this machine. The only real difference between them that I can think of is that this one is still FAT32, while the other 2 are NTFS. Still trying though on this one though, it seems like a handy little program.

#36, when you get a message that says (basically) a program can't write to the registry, it means you probably don't have admin privileges. Make sure you're running as a local administrator when you try to install/activate. Hope this helps.
I think this is a nifty little prog. Thanks, GOTD!

Tiny, easy to use & light on the system. Contains some useful info & I think it's good as a teaching tool for those unfamiliar with networking. It picked up everything in my little home network including my attached external hard drives, my router & my all-in-one. It's a keeper for me.
I installed it on both my systems. XP Pro SP-2 & Vista Ultimate SP-1 (both x86 systems) with no hassles at all. It seems strange that no matter what or how to, theres always folks with activation issues. I just ran activate exe after the install exe. As administrator on Vista. Both took on the first try.
Fubar: Thanks for answering "who said thats" question regarding IE 8. I've been considering the upgrade but as an old dog (hard head), I'll just stick to my Firefox 2.20 for now. Firefox v3 doesn't show anything in the search bar for me (unless I click in it) & my favorite add-ons & theme still don't work with it. I'm sure Microsoft will be shoving IE 8 down our throats sooner or later anyway so I'll wait on it.

#6 the left and bottom panel aren't resizable on every screen, but it doesn't seem to be something you would need to do. The main panel is resizable simply by resizing the window. The bottom panel on the first page 'NetStat' is resizable, I only tried one other, the last one. I'm not spending a lot of time on it right now, because my other machine isn't up and running.

It doesn't seem to have any problem with my Linksys router. I have DSL linked into a router which is direct to my PC and wireless to my notebook. It even picked up my McAfee networking program. I'm not sure I really need this, because I do have McAfee and that gives me the basics. Since I'm not an IT, the basics are probably all I need plus the protection of McAfee. But it does look like a nifty little program. Thumbs up from me even if I don't end up using it.

My OS on the PC is Vista Home Premium X64, my notebook is the same only 32 bit.

p.s. if you have trouble registering it and you followed the instructions, close and restart the program, then click Help/about and you will see it is registered.

Installs great on 32bit Vista home premium. my anti virus software hips detection initially blocks the activate.exe update of the registry, authorizing the event, and re-running does the trick.

I am familiar with network based tools, and have been looking for a simple one to use at home. I have not spent a lot of time researching this issue I found, so if anyone knows this, it would be helpful.

When selecting different lines (either by arrow key, or manually selecting) I recieve a system level beep. (Not out of the speakers)

The sound alert option (in options) is separate and not related to this particular beep.

THank you

It does not register for me also. Running WinXP SP2. Running Activate says "Successfully activated", but when program installs it pops up this message:

"Error creating registry key:


RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 1019
System could not allocate the required space in a registry log.

Click Retry to try again, Ignore to proceed anyway, or Abort to cancel installation."

Clicking Retry or Ignore just pops up the same message, Abort is the only choice at that point. I ran setup first as the instructions said and then activate.exe, also reversed the order as other offers have said to do in the past and someone here posted, same result, can't register it.

#31, who said that, I've been running IE8 RC for some time on Vista, and am now running the released IE8. I didn't have problems with IE7 crashing, that's usually due to add-ons (Flash, etc.) I haven't been running the released version of IE8 long enough to check for improvements over the release candidate. I'm not at all happy that Google continues to remove functionality from the Google Toolbar. Except for the interesting Google Taskbar button ("QSB") that comes with Google Toolbar 6 beta (IE only), much of Google Toolbar is now useless to me, except for the special features (spell-checking, auto-fill, auto-link, up-level). Its original functionality is now scattered across IE8's address and search boxes (including Find on page, which isn't as good as the Google Toolbar's was), and their results are not as conveniently ordered. It still has some strange zoom issues in IE8; I haven't been using it long enough to know whether it actually works in IE8 (Toolbar 5 didn't, I kept having to disable it). IE8 is supposed to have very good security (and for those using Firefox, Firefox had four times the number of security vulnerabilities as every other major browser in 2008). As I've noted previously, IE8 handles Protected Mode per-tab, and generally crashes and auto-restarts per-tab (independent processes). Web Slices are pretty useless, but the Accelerators are convenient. Most people like Firefox for the add-ons. I don't live in my browser, so I don't care about most of them, but new versions of Firefox keep breaking the ones which I use. I've read that the new Firefox beta is adding features from IE8, but only about half the add-ons work, so I'll probably stick with IE8 as my main browser for now.

Probably not for the average home user with one PC directly connected. Vista considers my little setup a network, IE: Local & Internet so I installed it out of curiosity more then need. It seems improved from the last time it was offered. I had no issues activating it on Vista Ultimate (32 bit). It picked up my router, IP configuration, Network adapters & attached external drives with no apparent problems.
Fubar, Question: Have you installed IE 8 on your Vista system? If so, was it worth it? I hate IE 7 because of frequent crashing on my Vista Ultimate system. There, I installed Slim browser as an IE based browser alternative & have no problems with it. Funny thing tho, I have no problems with IE on my Vista Home Premium system. My solution is to stick with Firefox.

The HELP section of this program will (IMHO) provide learners with an easy-to-understand introduction to the network topics such as Tracers, Routes etc this handy program offers. If you are not interested in such matters, then it is unlikely to be of much use to you.
