GlassWire on Windows 7

Background

The other Newtwork Monitoring tool that we found on the Net is GlassWire.

Unfortunately, it is not going to be much help for our Lab as the currently available versions does not support MS Windows 2003; and most of our Lab servers run that OS.

 

Download & Install

Downloaded GlassWire from here.

Though, can not install it on our Lab Servers, went ahead and installed it on my work laptop.

 

Usage

Eye Candy

The tool is a stunning eye candie.

It makes one forget the reason for installing it in the first place.
