about NetWorx Jun 2011

With NetWorx we perfectly can monitor our separated and summed up Traffic to the Internet-Provider with 2 computers in a home network:
Each off them is connected with the own ethernet network card (in a star structure) to a HSPDA internet modem Huawei B970 .
On each computer we monitor the traffic of the own ethernet card and exclude the traffic to the IP-Address of the ethernet network card of the other computer.
E.g. the own computer has IP-Address 192.168.1.27, the other computer has IP-address 192.168.1.133 and must be excluded and vice versa (to ignore traffic in internal LAN).
Networx sums up the internet traffic to the provider of both computers, and shows the traffic to the internet provider of each single computer and of both computers together, if Networks is installed on both computers.
Both Networx installations communicate perfectly automatically.
