• How to connetct AthTek NetWalk to the network?

AthTek NetWalk can run on 3 types of networks:

Using Hubs - The best choice to gain visibility on a switched network is to insert a hub to all the connections. AthTek NetWalk will monitor the traffic through the public port on hub, so that all the communications throughout the network is available and visible in AthTek NetWalk.
Using A Hub

Using a Tap - If you are using Tap on your network, AthTek can easily help you monitor your network. As you already know, Tap is something like Phone Tap. Normally it has three ports on it. Usually the port-1 will be attached to Protected Switch; the port-2 will be attached to Firewall. AthTek NetWalk will attach to the port-3 to monitor all the traffic data throughout your network, so you can know everything about the Tap network.
Using a Tap

Using Mirror Port - Most switches support mirror port, AthTek NetWalk can help with your network monitoring too by using the mirror port. First you need to configure the mirror port on the switch, and then connect AthTek NetWalk to this mirror port. This kind of mirror network monitoring works like the Tap network, but it will not break the full duplex nature.

    AthTek NetWalk concentrates on enterprise network management. It enables the enterprise owner or the network administrator to monitor traffic throughout the network, and gives a graphical real-time collection of data which the network adapter is loading.

    Users' Review

    • AthTek NetWalk is an ultimately powerful IPv6-compatible network monitoring solution that works with WireShark and WinPcap for extra performance and accuracy. The program provides real-time graphic indication of network activities and key parameters, including websites accessed, ports used, network usage trends and a lot more. It is the best among the likes.

    • I was greeted by a very pleasant looking program that offered more information about networks than I knew existed. It would certainly help if someone who is heavily dependent on networks... Wow, this is an impressive program. It displays a very impressive plethora of network information! ... I’ve used other packet sniffers over the years, and so far I see very little which might discourage me from using this one. Good job!
