Maybe you suspect nefarious goings-on with your network. Or maybe you're just curious about how many active connections you have going on. Either way, you're going to need an effective network monitor that's easy to use and highly configurable. In other words, you're going to need today's discount software promotion, X-NetStat!

X-NetStat lets you view detailed information on all current Internet and network connections in realtime. With X-NetStat, you'll be able to see the IP and hostname address, ports, applications, bandwidth usage, and status information of everything that's going into and out of your network. In this way, it's incredibly easy to find out if a specific application is hogging bandwidth, and identifying malware programs that are up to no good is a cinch.

Not only does X-NetStat serve as a network monitor, the program also lets you take action on what you're seeing. A nifty and powerful Rules System lets you establish certain responses that are triggered by network conditions. A collection of Lookup Tools, such as TraceRoute, WHOIS, Finger, DNS, and more, let you take all necessary steps to discover the origin of unfamiliar traffic. And with an integrated Web Server, you'll be able to peek in on X-NetStat from any remote location with a web connection!

Please note folks: the license purchased today ensures free upgrades up to version 5.99

Peter Gabriel Has development stopped on this program? I purchased a licence in January 2013 and I can't remember getting a single update ( maybe one, so long ago... ).

Andrew Niese Hey Peter. Development continues! I did take some time off from X-NetStat to work on a mobile app, and remake the Fresh website. There is a beta version of X-NetStat 5.62 available at right now. You can see the changelog at Beta 2 should be posted tomorrow or Tuesday. The final version should be out by Christmas.

Andrew Niese Hey everyone. I am super excited to be promoting X-NetStat with BitsDuJour again, and look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you have. X-NetStat first came out in 1998, so I've spent 17 years making sure it's useful, relevant, and the best it can be. It's an important project to me, and I love to hear from customers. We can make it better together. FYI, I just uploaded the latest version 5.62 Beta 2 to (, if you want to try it out before the final release (it's beta software, so no promises it will work on your system). Of course 5.61 is still available, and is proven stable. I'll be checking in throughout the day to answer your questions. Thanks for your consideration.

Gonzo "You must install/register the software within 30 days, and cannot do so afterwards."
Is that normal for the full-priced product as well?

CFGuy I am not able to get coupon code to work at checkout.
Dec 2 2015 at 6:01pm Copy Link
Andrew Niese @Gonzo -- that's not really accurate. There is a 30 day trial period, and if the software isn't purchased by then it stops working (everything greyed out, etc). If you purchase later, you can still go into program afterwards to enter your registration code, and then the software becomes functional again. Hope that makes sense. I'll see about updating the listing.

Andrew Niese @CFGuy are you entering everything in UPPERCASE?

Rick Fox Nice program. I remember looking at this years ago.

Is IPv6 fully supported? If not, will it be within the scope of this license?

Neo Alive Does this run on windows 10 without any problems?

Neil R User Coupon code not working, price stays at $49.95
Dec 3 2015 at 6:18am Copy Link
Andrew Niese @Rick Fox -- It does not support IPv6 at this time. This is something that would probably be in the next major version release -- version 6.0 -- so the deal offered today would probably not include a free upgrade for IPv6 support. A 5.x to 6.x upgrade would be discounted but, not free.

Andrew Niese @ Neil R User -- can you make sure the coupon code is in UPPERCASE without leading or trailing spaces?

Cary Adams I went to the web looking for reviews and instead found interesting pricing (non-promotional). For some time this product went for $12 (version 5.1), and at beta 5.6, $29.95. Now we're shown a regular price of $49.95. So from 5.1 to 5.6, the price has quadrupled? Is that right?

I 'm just wondering how good a deal this is at $19.98. I don't mean to be rude, but I don't understand your pricing. Can you elaborate please.
Dec 3 2015 at 8:00am Copy Link
Andrew Niese @Cary Adams -- The $12 cost of 5.1 was for a "lite" version that was discontinued a while ago. The $49.95 price point has been around since 2008, prior to that it was $39.95. The $29.95 price point is older than 2005, but it's possible some 3rd party websites still listed it at that. Over the years new features have been added, so you could say the value of X-NetStat has gone up over time. Of course value is in the eye of the beholder. It has been somewhat difficult to price XNS because of the diversity of users. Not everyone sees it the same, or uses it the same way. One customer may use it a few times a year to diagnose a problem, another may use it every day to monitor a mission-critical server.

Neo Alive hmmm.

@Neo Alive -- Running fine here on Windows 10 64-bit , build 10586.

Why not just say : YES ?

I was just looking at netlimiter..... What is the advantage of x-netstat in comparison to netlimiter. they both provide the same kind of info.
Dec 3 2015 at 8:58am Copy Link
Andrew Niese X-NetStat can do some things NetLimiter can't, and vice versa. I can't speak on this comprehensively. At a glance, NetLimiter seems to have an advantage in displaying long term traffic statistics, and throttling bandwidth. X-NetStat appears to have an advantage in it's rules system, process and address tracing, and integration with other tools like Wireshark. It seems the 2 products could be complementary.
Fresh Software LLC - Dec 3 2015 at 9:39am Copy Link
Cary Adams Thank you Andrew. Admittedly I'm in your first category... periodic troubleshooting/monitoring... and Wireshark/Fiddler are a bit unwieldy for me, given my sporadic use.
Dec 3 2015 at 10:06am Copy Link
Rick Fox @Andrew, thank you for the answer. Money is really tight (spent up for Christmas really, and then some!) but I'm still thinking about it. I'll certainly watch how the program develops because I did like it when I trialled it some time ago. I was just totally skint then too.

To chime in with some of the above:

I used to use netlimiter a lot, and as I said I trialled X-Netstat. They definitely have different uses although there is some overlap in functions as mentioned. Similarly, with the rules system X-Netstat could be compared to a personal firewall but again there are big differences too.

While a program could attampt to do it all, I would not want something that 'large' running all the time.

X-Netstat looks to be a great monitoring tool and is something that I'm pretty sure will end up in my toolbox at some point. It would make a lot of what I seem to end up doing much easier.

Andrew Niese @Cary Adams -- you're welcome. Maybe I can bring back the Lite version in 2016 after the holidays. That could be better suited for your needs. Thanks for your interest.

Andrew Niese @Rick Fox -- I hear ya. And thanks for the feedback. If you want to keep tabs on X-NetStat, one way is to like Fresh Software on Facebook: (not very spammy, usually just major announcements and such)
