Is NAD 2.2 capable of monitoring 56k modem traffic? The old freeware version detects dial-up traffic on the "Total Bytes" parameter and also "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface". Thanks.

Thank you for writing us.
Yes, it does. It shows the modem connection as a separate adapter at the Filtering page of diagram properties dialog.

Hello. Back to try v2 again. Still using v1.1 since my last post.

The "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface" only shows up in standard mode.

Also, when NAD runs on windows startup, my 56k connection has not yet been established until I manually dial it. This places a red "X" in the tray graph which I thought was pretty cool. However, after connecting my 56k the red x never goes away. I have to restart NAD in order for it to detect the WAN interface. Is there any way to make NAD automatically detect that the modem interface has been connected? I can always just wait until after connecting to run NAD, but it would be nice to have it run on startup.

Thanks. This really is a great program.

With v2.3.293, "Remote Access NDIS WAN Driver" is now an option when using "Smart Filtering System" as the statistics engine.

In "Standard" mode, the "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface" still does not update the red "X" after connecting. I will be using "Smart Filtering System" now anyway.

When switching engines from Standard to Smart Filtering System I get the following error: "List index out of bounds (2)"

Then the mouse cursor changes to an hourglass and never goes away. The error occurs because in Standard mode I use "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface" which isn`t an option in "Smart Filtering System" mode. In order to switch to Smart mode I have to first change any diagrams using WAN to something else. Instead, it should automatically upgrade any diagrams using the WAN adapter to the Remote Access NDIS WAN Driver.

Thank you for your information.
We will fix this "Index out of bounds" problem.
