With X-NetStat you can keep an eye on your computer's open ports while your surfing and see if someone's surfing you back!

The software downloaded and installed uneventfully. Since I've never used a program like this before, I had plenty of questions. I e-mailed Fresh Software five times over the course of my review and always received a prompt, courteous, helpful response.

The graphic interface is clean and sleek; it's easy to understand and configure. On my old dog Pentium 75 with the Windows 95 first issue installed, I had some problems running X-NetStat, but these are issues that Fresh Software was already aware of and is working on. The software does what it was intended to do and appears to do it well, even with my "archaic" computer.

You can download the software free and use it for 30 days before any nag screens. At 30 days, a nag screen appears, but the software is still useable. It's well worth the meager cost. X-NetStat is a good product by an up and coming company.
