As a Mac user since 1984, I have used products written by Peter Sichel for probably over ten years back well before the end of the Classic Environment. Any time I had a question, Peter responded personally and helped me resolve any problem I ever encountered. It was usually helping me through the Voodoo that is networking protocols and its intricacies. I have used a variation of this program since System 9 and maybe before and would not be without it. Although regularly using other tools, I always keep a window (or several) open with the Monitor for 24x7 view of numerous ports I/O on every Mac I operate. Peter's support is among the best I have ever received in over 25 years and his innovative Phone Amego allows integrating via Bluetooth my iPhone and Google Voice with multiple Macs as well. I am a demanding user and Peter delivers great products that work well. He still supports software for machines that bit the dust many years ago, so he won't abandon you like many have me in the past. Stars did not work properly, but overal i Rate ***** and *** for ease of use, but Peter makes it easier with 5 star support.

I haven't figured out how to use this App yet. Not sure exactly what benefit I'll get by using it.

Looks like it is not 10.10.3 (14d136) compatible. Same issue as referenced by others, shows 262 but downloads 242. I'll just do a VCB, via AE.

beware of the update trap! the application offered an update (!) from my version 2.6.2 to 2.6.4. after installation, i was asked to pay $35 to continue using the product. on top, my previous version was gone. while you can download v2.6 from the developer's website, there seems to be no way to update it to the latest free version (2.6.3) which would make it yosemite compatible. feels like a scam to me. if the developer wants to see money for new features, he could make it a paid upgrade to a new version 3.

Yosemite PB2 reports the application as damaged (though the image checksum is fine). Downloaded direct from Sustainable's site, too, with same result.

I bought this last year and haven't had any issues with it whatsoever. I have worked with the developer on a couple of questions I had on its functionality or adding a tweak to an interface and he was extremely courteous and receptive. Yes, there's free tools out there - however some people love a front-end GUI where the features are ready to use out of the box. Some people aren't fans of hitting up the CLI and want to do a screenshot for clients with ore than simple text on a screen. There's not a ton of nice-looking, functional, stable apps that do what this one does in an all-in-one package from what I've seen. If you would use most of what is in the suite or it would make your troubleshooting process a bit easier, it very well might be a worthy investment for you; as opposed to trying to a la carte all of the apps and trying to remember their CLI argument(s) for the common features that are already included in this suite.

I had IPNetRouter & Monitor back in the OS 9 days, and it was amazing how powerful, easy to configure and comprehend it was. To other discounting the "G" part of the UI: Don’t. Being able to easily pull up all your information quickly and easily saves a lot of time and lets you absorb the information faster. I have a Network+ Certification, and having used this before I got my cert. made it a lot easier to get my bearings in networking. Sure a real CLI pro could script multiple Terminal windows opening up at once, but an inexpensive, flexible GUI facade that is updated regularly and well supported is something many NetAdmins do not realize they need. If you are a network admin and you save 12 minutes a day (completely possible IMO), at the end of the week you have another hour to do something else, including actually eating lunch out of the office. So, yeah it’s worth $60 considering it will pay for itself in within a month in saved man hours. Even a home user with a complicated setup could benefit for a fraction of the price of professional tools. Sure it’s not “perfect” and there could be several graphical and feedback improvements, but the price:performance ratio and ROI is pretty awesome. But that’s just my opinion, and your mileage my vary. So, download the demo and try it out. What have you got to lose?

If would be a very nice sotware if it could graph pings like smoke ping or pingplotter thats something I'd love to have for MAC I wonder who is the target for this? I dont think any IT guy will pay even $20 for it cause people who need tcpdump etc know already how to do all of these from command line

Is this just a GUI interface for the already built in to mac os x versions of these tools, or have they been re-written somehow to make them better?

55,303 downloads and no comments in 19months (since June of 2009)? Who else finds that odd? No good reviews or bad ones for a year and 7mos? Highly unlikely. Where are the reviews?

First, I have no interest in this company, don't own any part of it, just a happy Mac camper who stumbled on this groups products back in OS 9. IPNetMonitorX does a great deal more than the Apple network utility. It not only helps me "tune" my TCP/IP stack by providing feedback, it helps me diagnose problems when they occur on my DSL connection. I find the software helpful for someone who is reasonably technical. I'm not sure that an entry-level user would benefit from more than just a few of the many features. I recommend this software for experienced users with a Broadband connection, it will be an invaluable help.

Does not work with my Airport card on a Mac Book or Mac Book Pro Intel, running OS 10.5.6. Running as System Admin. The Monitor just sits there blank and the Airport Signal page does nothing either. It works with an Ethernet connection hardwired to a router, but not with an Airport card. Very odd. As this is a release candidate I'm sure this will be fixed. But I'm not going to rate it. The developer has a very high reputation for solid dependable software.

Amazing. The best keeps getting better. Not only that but still supports the old PowerPC architecture. I'd give it more than 5 stars but I can't. Been using this app since the old System 7 Days.

On a MacBook the Interface Info screen the interface receive errors is not working correctly. It just counts up with no reason at the rate of approx 10/sec. The apple network utility shows no errors. I have reported this to the author but there seems to be no interest in fixing the problem. This has been going on for 3 months.

For more than Ten (10) years this has been an indispensable great piece of software that use daily. What I would like to request is only that the WhoIS part needs a little updating to the latest Region Tlds root servers for the increasing by country now availalable worldwide registration restrictions have been droped, so anybody can own many new country specific extensions now. eg:LACNIC,AFRINIC

People say that this better than the command line but for some of this stuff there is a GUI front end in the Network Utility app in OS X.

This is one of the best and most complete general network diagnostic and troubleshooting tool available for Mac OS X. I only hope that the developer would consider making this tool set available as widgets with the upcoming dashboard feature in Tiger. This would put it far ahead of its competition in usability and functionality. Which is its only drawback right now.

IPNetMonitor is a superb tool for anyone setting up or trouble-shooting networks of any type. And while many of the tools are available in command-line -- the excellent GUI is most welcome. Considering the price of similar tools -- IPNetMonitor is a full-featured bargain.

Some of the reviewers are noting that these tools can be found for free elsewhere or that you can just use the command line. That's true. However, even if you don't mind using the command line and so know Unix, it's wonderful to not have to bring up a man page just so I can remember all the various options. An example is tcpdump or tcpflow. Two very useful tools that are available with IPMonitorX. I'm a computer support person for an academic unit and have been using computers for ever and have no problem using a GUI front end that makes my work easier.

Many have indicated that a number of tools included in the Sustainable Softworks utilities are available from many sources, many of them free. While this is mostly true, they are hard to track down and many in my own experience have been missing some commonsense, in terms of their interface and/or features. Sustainable applications have been very good and the developer has been very open to suggestions and future features incorporation. The applications are robust and the data they provide is accurate and repaetable. The products are well worth the asking price, in my opinion. Rod Paine

Apple provides much of this for free in the Utilities folder in Jaguar and Panther. Free maintenance utilities such as Maintain and OnyX also provide tools like this. Their also a lot of separate free utilities that do this as well. But I guess that if you need this stuff, but don't know Unix, want a collection from one source, and have $40 to burn, you flight is now departing from gate 1.

This is excellent software regardless of it being a "front end" for command line software. I've used IPNet Monitor for several years now and believe it to be much better than any command line utilities. It's definitely better than Apple's Network Utility. It even includes a tcpdump tool. You definitely should read the help which is available for each tool. Also, go through the FAQs on the developer's web page.
