WallWatcher runs under all versions of Microsoft Windows released between 1998 and 2010, including Windows 7, VISTA, XP, 2000, ME, NT, and 98.
It collects, displays, and analyzes log information from more than 135 Routers and firewalls made by: 2Wire, 3Com, Actiontec, Adtran, Airlink, Asante, Astaro, Asus, Bewan, Billion, Bintec, Buffalo, Checkpoint, Cisco, Cyberguard, D-Link, Draytek, Edge-Core, Edimax, Fortigate, Fortinet, Gnatbox, Hotbrick, IPCop, IPTables, ITServ, Juniper Networks, Level One, Linksys, Lucent, m0n0wall, Netgear, Netscreen, OpenBSD, ParkerVision, pfSense, Servgate, SMC, Smoothwall, Sonicwall, Speedstream, Squid, Symantec, Trendnet, Untangle, US Robotics, WatchGuard, Westell, Xincom, XroadsNetworks, Zoom, and ZyXEL(see details). Many other routers use the same logging format as some of the listed ones, and WallWatcher can help you find the best fit. For details, please see Router Selection, below.

|If your router is not on this list, use "Auto-Select".
If none of its choices is satisfactory, try IPTables.
If that doesn't work, use 'SysLog (generic)'.
WallWatcher supports most routers that send log records in real-time to a local computer port, usually 514 (SysLog) or 162 (SNMPTrap). If your router can do that kind of logging, it's probably using a supported log format. To find the best match, you can install WallWatcher and use the "auto-select" option on its ROUTER menu. This one-time test may take an hour or two, depending on how much traffic your router reports.
NOTE: if your router cannot
send log records in real-time to a local computer, WallWatcher will not
be able to support it.
WallWatcher is Shareware, not
"Freeware"; but the current price is $0.00.
The WallWatcher website doesn't collect any information about you. It does count the number of times certain pages are accessed, but not by whom. The web servers that host WallWatcher belong to various companies, not to me. They collect IP addresses, timestamps, and usage statistics (which pages and files you transfer, and how many bytes are transferred). They do that so they can bill me if the monthly bandwidth quota is exceeded. Some of those hosts make those weblogs available to me to prove they're not overcharging.
The programs at this website are not, and never have been, Spyware, Adware, Trojans, etc. The only information they collect is the log and bandwidth data from the Router(s) you've asked them to monitor. That information is stored in log files on your hard drive for your review and use. WallWatcher does nothing else with any information unless you tell it to send information from those log files to the DShield.org or myNetWatchman Security Collection Centers, or to send logs or intrusion alerts to an e-mail address of your choice. In those cases, the programs send the necessary information only to the location(s) you've specified.
Selecting certain program features, especially conversion of remote IP addresses to Names (URL's), may send your IP address to those remote locations (that's how the Internet works). You don't have to use those features, and WallWatcher's "Help" explains how you can safeguard your address.
NOTE: From time to time, some
Anti-virus and Spyware detectors have indicated "False positives" on some
of the WallWatcher components. For example, Symantec's 9/15/2004
virus definitions caused Norton Anti-Virus (NAV) to warn that "wallwatcher.exe"
versions 3.0.1022 (July 16, 2004) through 3.0.1200 (August 5, 2004) were
Spyware. That was a false positive, and Symantec corrected it a week
later: the 9/22/2004 virus definitions accepted "wallwatcher.exe".
There are two restrictions to the use of the WallWatcher programs: 1) you may not sell them, and 2) they are provided as-is, with no warranty or liability on the part of the developer.
