OK the installation was a breeze. It is the Setup that is going to take you a bit of time. The Tutorial is fairly straight forward and only one page so take a look.

This is what is called a full featured product. It will monitor all the ports that you can come up with on multiple networks. It will, if there is a problem, send an email, plus it can trigger all sorts of other actions including 3rd party utilities to deal with an error. Internal actions that it is able to do include sending an alphanumeric page, perform a traceroute and whois to figure out which node is causing the problem.

There are bulit in graphs that are really nice. The company has really thought this program out. It definetly is not someones first attempt at a shareware program. This is a polished product that you will find is sold for too little money (don't tell).

Conclusion. Well you can tell from the above that I really like this program, it really is well thought out and it has great documentation. There is a 88 page .pdf Manual that comes with it and with the 30 day fully featured try out you really can't go wrong.

Try It! Buy It!
