NetStat Agent 3.3 - IPv6 Connection Monitoring Tool

Today we are pleased to announce the latest version of NetStat Agent 3.3 with support for IPv6.

To date, IPv6 is supported only in the netstat utility to monitor IPv6 connections, but not far off the day and other tools (Ping, Traceroute, HTTP, etc.) will support IPv6.

NetStat Agent 3.3 will search the country to address (IPv6-to-Country). Also, the errors have been solved from the monitoring UDP connections and updated database of addresses for IPv4.

We hope the new version will have you in mind!

Real NetStat - The Visual NetStat

We are happy to announce our new software - Real NetStat. It is a lightweight version of NetStat Agent and includes only two tools: netstat and statistics. The user interface is changed little, but still is friendly and easy-in-use. All powerful features of NetStat Agent to monitor Internet connections are implemented in the Real NetStat program. So if you need only the visual netstat tool, Real NetStat is a great choice for you!

NetStat Agent Portable 3.1.1

We are pleased to announce the portable version of NetStat Agent 3.1.1. It has the same features as described in “NetStat Agent 3.1.1” topic, but also we added missed parameters for netstat monitor (see Run batch scripts with NetStat Agent):

%COUNTRY% -  shows a country (only for TCP non-local connections)
%CCODE% - a country ISO code like RU, EU, etc.

Enjoy the new portable version!

Run batch scripts with NetStat Agent

In NetStat Agent 3.1 we added an ability to run batch scripts (in previous versions only executable files could be run). And because a launched third party program can show a window, we added new properties to user interface: program parameters (such as process name, remote ip, etc.) and an option to show\hide a program window.

On current moment the program supports the following parameters:

Connection monitoring with NetStat Agent

I was asked by email how to monitor only one local port, so decided to answer in blog.

Let assume that we have a HTTP server (Apache) on local port 80 and we want to monitor all HTTP connections. With installed NetStat Agent it is very easy to do.

After running NetStat you will see a lot of connections (click to see the large picture):


So we need to create a filter in “Monitor” tab to hide unwanted connections:

  1. In the context menu (right click) select “Clear” to clear all fields.
  2. Set the name of filter: “hide all”.
  3. Set action as “Hide”.
  4. Check on the box “Enabled”.
  5. Press “Add” button to add a new filter.

The result you may see on the screenshot:

After adding this filter all connections are invisible. So we need another one to show only wanted connections:

  1. In the context menu (right click) select “Clear” to clear all fields.
  2. Set the name of filter: “show http”.
  3. Set the local port: 80.
  4. Check on “Select” action only.
  5. Press “Add”.

See screenshot:

Now if you select “Connections” tab again, you will see only HTTP connections:

HTTP connections only

With NetStat Agent you may monitor HTTP visitors in real-time mode!
