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 5.6!

X-NetStat 5.6 lets you view detailed information on all current Internet and network connections in realtime. With X-NetStat 5.6, 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 5.6 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 5.6 from any remote location with a web connection!

Andrew Niese Hi, the final non-beta version of 5.61 was just uploaded. Here are the checksums of the setup file for anyone interested:

CRC-32: 6e75e484
MD4: 279393961533c4692fad207100d1e73e
MD5: ad032d1372bd7ec1eaca993528a69e8a
SHA-1: ee2447c61001512509865476a8cf183ff43d0584

Unfortunately, Windows 8 SmartScreen is warning on this file because it is brand new, so Windows 8 users may see a caution prompt even though the file is digitally signed. This should go away after a little while...

If you have questions or comments about X-NetStat or this promotion, please post them here! I will be checking in throughout the day to answer your questions. My goal is to make you a satisfied and happy customer. Thanks for your interest.

Gonzo I feel somehow confused. The title mentions X-NetStat 5.6. The regular price is USD 49.95, which based on the official website corresponds to the Pro version. However there's an "Frequently Bought Together" showing: X-NetStat Professional, which would seem to indicate this is the Standard/Lite edition.
To make things worse, in the official website, there's wording about Standard/Lite version being a trial that can be registered/bought, but no mention as to how to buy it or the price.

Can anyone shed some light as to whether this is the Standard/Lite version or the Pro version?

Also, the official website reads "Get licensed for life with unlimited support & upgrades."; however the fine print here indicates free updates until next major version. Which is correct?
I realized there hasn't been a major version release in several years, but I'd still like clarification on updates/upgrades.

Constantin Florea @Gonzo - The promotion we're running today is for the Professional version. Regarding the promotion you noticed in the Frequently Bought Together section, that was indeed an EveryDay deal for the Professional version but that had a much lower discount and should have been hidden while this promotion (with the higher discount) is active.

Constantin Florea @Gonzo - Regarding the last part of your comment regarding the upgrades, we have just contacted the vendor to help clear this part out.

Daniel Gaudet If I have a PC with multiple virtual machines, does it count as one license if I install it on all the VMs?

Also, have you considered a "home license" where every PC in a home would be licensed?

Dave V Be aware that according to the developer in previous comments; this program reports activity back to the vendor every 30 days, and also requires online activation. The user activity tracking 'feature' cannot be disabled by the user. Interesting that software designed to help you sniff out what other software may be secretly doing does so itself. No thanks.

Andrew Niese Hi Gonzo,

Constantin is right, it's for the Professional version. The 5.x license is good for life, and upgrades are free through 5.99. If and when a version 6.0 comes out, there would be a discounted upgrade path from your 5.x license. I use a somewhat conservative versioning system, so I would say there have been many "major version" releases since 5.0. There several new features just from 5.6 to 5.61. Hope that helps answer your questions.

Andrew Niese Hi Daniel, you would need 1 license per virtual machine. Thanks for letting me know about the unit pricing. I just updated the coupon so the unit price floats down from $19.95 -- the 60% off is now applied after the volume discount.

There used to be a site license option, usually for companies, but I hadn't considered a site-license for home. That may be worth looking into. For now I think the per-PC model is working well. If you have additional thoughts please let me know.

Daniel Gaudet Thanks Andrew for the change. I was looking at getting 10 licenses, but 11 licenses is actually a few dollars cheaper.

As for the home site license, we have quite a bit of PCs home and I have a home lab with a number of VMs on it so it would be handy to have a home license. While we are only 4 in the house, we have over 15 PCs and quite a bit of VMs. It would be nice to have this as part of the standard image on the systems, especially when I am trying to troubleshoot a networking issue.

There are a few other vendors that offer home site licenses. The one that's top of mind is DisplayFusion. It offers a very competitively price home license. While it's a totally different product, I would classify it as a required install on my systems and I would like to consider X-NetStat as one such product too.

On more question. If I get 11 licenses, I am allowed to install it on up to 22 systems, correct? As part of those 22, half of them (11) need to be installed on 11 laptops, or can the 22 installed be on any type of systems?

Ricky Rick @Dave V - and the Software Vendor: with what you said quoted below I agree with you 100%:

" Be aware that according to the developer in previous comments; this program reports activity back to the vendor every 30 days, and also requires online activation. The user activity tracking 'feature' cannot be disabled by the user. Interesting that software designed to help you sniff out what other software may be secretly doing does so itself. No thanks. "

I also say No Thanks!

To the Vendor: I would have been interested in this software IF it didn't do what it does by phoning home every 30 days. I also noticed in an old comment you made to another person that if he didn't like that feature not to buy it -- or -- to email you for a custom version.

With ALL the PRIVACY issues happening these days - I would think you would automatically have a version ALREADY programmmed that doesn't phone home every 30 days and offer it as an ALTERNATIVE and INCREASE your sales. A LOT of people are EXTRA PARANOID these days about their PRIVACY - including me.

Andrew Niese Sorry for the confusion Daniel. Normally it is 1 license for 1 installation. So for 22 concurrent installations, you need 22 licenses. If you have it installed on 22 systems (VM or non-VM) and want to install it on a 23rd system, you need to first uninstall one of the earlier installations.

However I see under "The Fine Print" that it says "Each license allows installation on a single computer and a laptop." That's a mistake on my part, it should not read "and a laptop". I will honor that that for this promotion only. So your interpretation would be correct (this time only) -- for every desktop/VM license you buy, you can install on one additional laptop (non-VM). Hopefully that makes sense!

Andrew Niese Ricky Rick (and Dave V) thanks for weighing in. I do appreciate your concerns about privacy. Personally I think folks should be more concerned about NSA programs like PRISM than DRM systems that phone home.

Daniel Gaudet @Andrew Niese: I think it makes sense. Thanks for honoring the fine print.

I've gone ahead and ordered 11 licenses of X-NetStat 5.6 where I could install it on up to a max of 22 systems. I don't think I will need that many, but it's nice to have just in case. I do have 9 laptops and 4 desktops that I will be installing the software so that leaves me with plenty of licenses for my other systems and VMs.

When I want to migrate the licenses from one system/vm to another, do I just reach out to the e-mail in the contact information page or is uninstalling all that's required?
