Before I purchase this program, there is one deciding factor to my decision.

Can it monitor all LAN activity including wireless?

My ISP are being arsey and I need to monitor all traffic, but preferably without installing the app on all machines.

The program can handle wireless network cards as well.
But the program monitors the computers traffic, so you would need to have it on each computer.

Normally I like people to buy per machine, but times are tough so as long as you own the computer and its in the same house you can use the same key on all your computers. So feel free to install it on each computer.

Also I am always open to ideas (im currently working on a new version I will be releasing next week) So if you ever are in need of a feature all you have to do is ask :-)

I would love for the program to be able to install and run as an invisble background task and record on a main pc to monitor all traffic.

Maybe even showing how much data is being transferred by each IP address on the network.

Thankyou for your reply and no doubt after a bit more testing I will more than likley purchase your software, it would be definate buy if you could add the above :)

One thing I will be adding later one (not in this next update) is a remote viewer program that can view the stats from other computers.
Right now with the program is a screen saver (source code included) it shows how to talk with the program through UDP.

I will be building a remote viewer app based off of that so a user can check the current levels from the computer he or she wants. I also did the UDP communication for other programmers who want to write their own apps and pull the data. I have one programmer who is making a program to read the stats from my simple internet meter and display it on the mini screen on his logitic keyboard.

As you can see by having the program able to talk to other apps opens the door to lots of useful apps.
