Internet Connection Keeper8.1

21 May 2018

Keep your internet connection alive.

Overview

Note: This download is temporarily unavailable. Selecting download on this page will direct you to the developer's where a download may be found.

Internet Connection Keeper allows you to keep your Internet connection alive so that your Internet provider does not disconnect you.

  • It automatically sends a few bytes to your Internet provider regularly so that it does not disconnect you when your connection is idle when you don't use it
  • It does not use your bandwidth because it sends only a few bytes at configurable regular intervals
  • It tells you if the last attempt to keep your connection alive succeeded or failed
  • It appears in the right side of the menu bar
  • It doesn't need any installation which makes it very easy to use
  • It is available in English, French, and many other languages

What's new in Internet Connection Keeper

Version 8.1:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with High Sierra, and as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The "How to intall it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the Application in particular under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra:
  • Under Mac OS 10.13 High Sierra, if you're launching the Application for the first time, Mac OS
  • GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the Application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the Application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).

My previous comments about AlphaOmega stand! They remain THIEVES, and their apps remain HIDEOUSLY OVERPRICED ABERRATIONS. Whatever they're selling is available elsewhere and for less money.

There's a new version of OS X on the horizon, so I'm not surprised to see that these shameless thieves have crawled out from under their rock once again. Every app they've ever released has been a hideously overpriced, badly designed piece of crap that offered either built-in OS X functionality or functionality that was readily available elsewhere...better and cheaper. Avoid at al cost!!!

Firstly, if you have a dial-up modem you may want to look for a piece of shareware that will help you kill yourself. Secondly, you could try something like this from a command line: ping -i 60 -s 1 www.google.com

It costs 15 euros or $18.90, definitively a shameless rip-off... I mean slightly overpriced for something you can work for free from within your system.

Like someone else mentioned, this can be implemented in a number of free ways. But on the bright side, at least the developer isn't trying to charge $19.95 for it, like some very miserable titles I've seen on MU.

I personally have found this to be quite helpful. However it has not been easy for me to register online after purchase. I am still working on it!

I can just uncheck a box in system preferences and I don't need to open this at all. I don't need to have it taking up any disk space, I don't need to have it take up any ram, I don't need to have it take up any CPU cycles.

I am surprised that someone has the audacity to charge anything for this when all you need to do is set your mail program to check the mail every 10 minutes or so, and leave it running. It is usually done in the program preferences. I nominate this program for perversion tracker - a web site that list the most useless software. As I have noted before, anything not worth $10 is not worth charging for at all. This is another example of software for the uninformed gullible.

This is another one of those programs that you do not need to shell out good money for that takes advantage of the gullible. Just set your email program to check for mail every 10 minutes in its the preferences dialog. You don't need to spend $5 for this. On the other hand, this product does look like a prime candidate for Perversion Tracker - a site that lists useless software. It also fits into my criteria for not buying shareware - if it is not worth at least $10, it is not worth charging for at all.
