Karen's LAN Monitor starts by displaying important information about every network adapter on your computer. These details include the adapter's speed, IP address(es), DHCP Lease information, and more.
Next, the program shows all current connections between your computer and others on the local network, and on the Internet. You'll see the name and IP address of the remote computer, and the type of connection (HTTP, POP3, FTP, etc) that's being made!
The LAN Monitor also displays real-time traffic statistics, including bytes sent and received, transmission errors, and network connection load factors.
Note: The LAN Monitor requires features that are not included in Windows 95. As a result, Windows 98, or later, is required.
Editor's Note: Karen Kenworthy sadly passed away in her sleep on April 2nd, 2011. Here is the newsletter sent out at that time:
"Karen's Power Tools Newsletter April 25, 2011
I suspect that many of you have noticed that the last issue of Karen's Power Tools Newsletter was dated March 17, 2010, and you may have been anxiously awaiting another. It is with great sadness that I write to tell you of Karen's death on April 12, 2011, after a long struggle with several debilitations, including diabetes.
I know that Karen touched many of you with her kindness, wit, creativity and encouragement. She was a loving daughter, sister, aunt and friend. And she was a pretty darned good programmer, too. We are deeply grieving her loss.
For now, Karen's server is still running, the programs she has written can still be downloaded, and donations can still be made through the website. We are also working to fill all CD orders that have been submitted or mailed. It is difficult to make business decisions while grieving. So, at this point, I cannot say what will be the future of KarenWare.com, except to say that we will certainly continue Karen's commitment to safeguard your privacy as shown at the Privacy link of KarenWare.com.
