    "Great network tool if you have XP, crap otherwise."

    March 12, 2009   |   By TheMG

    Version: NetPeeker 2.83

    Pros

    -detailed traffic monitoring by port and ip
    -light firewall
    -data capture
    -bandwidth throttling
    -bandwidth monitoring
    -easy to use
    -light on resources

    Cons

    -lackluster support, last update July 2007

    Summary

    When I was running Windows XP, I was using this program and it's just wonderful the amount of detailed information you can easily obtain with NetPeeker. From what applications are using bandwidth and how much, right down to what ports, IP addresses, and processes are being used, and even packet captures. For those who like to be in the know about what goes in and out of their computer, this is the perfect tool.

    I haven't used the firewall and bandwidth throttling all that much, but they do work and just add to the extensive list of features this software has. For the price, it's a really good buy.

    The downfall of NetPeeker however is that firstly, support from the developer is difficult and slow, right now your only option is sending an email and hoping the developer responds, which he doesn't always. There are forums on the web site but they are spammed like heck and completely unmaintained. Purchases are not instant, as you have to wait the the developer to return an email with your product key. For me this took just over a week, and that was in 2006 when the software still had regular updates.

    Second downfall is since the software is apparently no longer updated, there is absolutely no support for Windows Vista or Windows 7. The software simply does not work on those OS, and there is no word about an update coming from the developer.

    At this time, I'd think twice about clicking that "purchase" button.

    Nice software with lots of potential and flexibility but with the seemingly non-existent support and lack of updates, I must rate it an average 3 out of 5 stars.

    "Wake up CNET!! This gem is up to v3.1"

    April 28, 2008   |   By GaryRW

    Version: NetPeeker 2.83

    Pros

    Much improved from reviewed version v2.83. It does a lot of things very well. You may not need other programs that may excel in one area. You got rule-based firewall, port throttling. logging, multi-network, capture, popup killer.

    Cons

    Seems to be more a labor of love than thriving business. I use it mostly for program monitoring and task killing. Used firewall during Eset Smart Security firewall maturation.

    "totally messed up my computer"

    November 18, 2007   |   By spunky

    Version: NetPeeker 2.83

    Pros

    this programme was great, really useful for limiting the speeds of applications on my computer and stuff, which is ideal if you're using torrents and browsing the internet....

    Cons

    ...then my computer crashed, wouldn't boot except in safe mode, otherwise i got a IRQ_IS_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL_TO etc stop message. so i uninstalled netpeeker and it booted up properly again, except still at a snail's pace.

    thanks netpeeker for completely messing up my computer. i'm really looking forward to reinstalling windows. not.

    "Little program that packs a lot of power."

    December 09, 2006   |   By mturgeon

    Version: NetPeeker 2.83

    Pros

    Has pretty much almost every feature you'd ever want out of a network monitoring tool and firewall. It's really light on system resources and it's fast. Lots of advanced configuration options to choose from. Ability to throttle speed on a per-session or per-application basis is a really nice and powerful plus.

    "flexible, usable and lots of information provided"

    May 27, 2005   |   By onlyme

    Version: NetPeeker 2.73

    Pros

    I love this program. It will log all the connections to your computer, showing the IP, which you can then easily trace (within the program!) You can sort the connections by program, by time, and by ip etc. (I noticed logs only worked when I selected a log folder within the program folder.) It also shows you the speeds you're connecting at.

    I also love the fact that you can set all sorts of rules to block certain connections easily. Or you can set it to allow, but notify you. (I disabled the firewall functions, and just get the program to block and or notify me of the things I am interested in, I use this with sygate firewall with no problems). Net peeker is an information gold mine, it as tonnes of features I couldn't find anywhere else, and I looked.. and tried many programmes that were badly designed, hard to use, and messed with my computer.

    Net peeker isn't perfect, the design is much better than most, but some minor changes would make it close to perfect. It is updated quite regularly, so please support this program, and before long we may have a close to perfect and indespensible program!

    Cons

    Needs some tweaking and more options, but the fundamentals are there.

    "is great and is working fine"

    April 03, 2005   |   By vm_ro

    Version: NetPeeker 2.73

    Pros

    Beside the interface that is "interesting", he does what it means to does. He really limits the traffic on the specified value, and it can be set it easily. You can use or not the other featuring as firewall or pop-up stop…

    The guys that they made it they did a good job.

    Cons

    I like the classical interface. Looks more professional.
