Everything IPNetRouterX does can be done in the command line… if you like spending hours doing something that should take minutes that is. With that said, here is my review:

I had IPNetRouter back in the OS 9 days and eventually was able to afford a real router that did everything IPNetRouterX does, but that router cost me about 3 times what this software did, not including the additional network interfaces I had to get.

Today I need a quick way to test a network setup, and IPNetRouterX came in quite handy. If you have a machine you leave on all the time anyway, IPNetRouterX would be a good solution.

I GUI is easier to use than 15 years ago, but it is still pretty complex. Luckily the in program help is extensive and actually useful (unlike most app’s in-app help).

IPNetRouterX gives the user full control over their network, and allows one to do complex setups with much less effort than traditional CLIs. It took me (literally) a minute to setup my mac as a gateway between two networks and test software to see if it would work before purchasing anything.

In conjunction with IPNetMonitorX, IPNetRouterX gives one a network overview with minimal fuss. I would recommend the package that includes both over individual purchases.

If you log into routers and configure them everyday, you do not need this app, but if you don’t (and only occasionally deal with routing, etc.) then give this a try. Given that both are a free trial, you have nothing to lose but time by trying the suite. And in my experience the apps actually save time.

We've been using IPNetRouterX for a couple of months and have found it great. The developer has been very responsive to any issues we've raised.

Ahh, folks am I missing something here. The app is $100 and the upgrade is $50. Let me in on the $40 secret please!

Don't be paranoid. Yes, this is a commercial application. Yes, it costs $40. But it's worth every penny for the kind of enterprise-worthy power that's provided in an approachable, easy-to-use interface.

Those of you that are moaning about the price -- DON'T BUY IT! It's obviously not meant for you.

This is a great product, and Sustainable Softworks does not collect personal information -- what's wrong with tracking an IP address to make sure the transaction is cool? Jeez.

$40 bucks is waaaay too much money. He has none of the associated overhead that comes with commerical software packaging and distribution, etc. which sells at COMP USA, etc, AND this app would NEVER see the shelf at $40.00! Not in a million years.

Besides that, I have always wondered why he just has to have our IP EVERYTIME WE DOWNLOAD HIS PROGRAMS!!??! I resent this, especially in light of learning he kinda "keeps tabs on certain of us"

To show you the "proof" I would have to "expose" myself - and I am not willing to do that at this time. You can believe it-or you can chose not to. Your call.

I know this is good software. But its too expensive for what it is. And I don't buy from someone I don't trust. And I do NOT trust old Peter Sichel here..not on yer life......

Ummm... So don't buy it?

I'll gladly pay the $40 to have the kind of routing power this app provides. Run it on a Blue G3 that you can get for less than $100 and for under $150 you have a truly enterprise-class firewall and router. With a first-class, easy-to-use GUI too!

Did you know they also watch you from behind your television set? That's why I always wear shades. And my lucky socks.

Sheesh! What a ding dong!

That's the spooky scary iNT@-rWWWEB, kid. He could just check his webserver logs to see who's been downloading what directly.

All of this is free on any GNU/Linux, BSD, etc PC why bother buying crud software when you can get it all for free

In response to the above two comments:

Why would anyone want this over an ACTUAL router? You obviously don't understand that not only is IPNetRouterX an ACTUAL router but it also is a Firewall, an IDS, an IPS, Bandwidth Accountant, Rate Limiter, and so much more! All with an elegant GUI interface to boot! Have you ever configured a Cisco router in an IOS terminal? Well I have, and let me tell you it ain't pretty. For a measly $100 and an old G3 Blue&White that was just gathering dust, I now have a dual redundant load balanced MONSTER that smokes the HARDWARE router I retired. I've had vendors pushing me $2000+ hardware solutions that can't touch this thing! P.S. It's driving a group of companies with 55 internet clients and multiple NAT'd servers so I ain't your typical home user!

Could not get a single response? I emailed the programmer with suggestions I had while playing with the demo and within 2 HOURS he had emailed me back with a newer version with the changes incorporated! I hadn't even bought the program yet! Good luck trying to find that kind of response from anyone else anywhere else!

Sustainable Softworks...you Rock!
