How the Incoming Connection Monitor Tool works

Displays Incoming Connection Attempts and Successes.

The Incoming Connection Monitor tool listens for TCP SYN or UDP or ICMP packets coming into your machine. When an incoming connection is attempted, the IP address of the computer connecting to you is logged in a database. Use this tool like a 'honeypot' or use it to look for virus/trojan infested computers on your network by for packets coming to ports those viruses/trojans are known to use.


Requires WinPcap for operation.
