Anseko NetCatcher easily allows to perfom automatically necessary actions when the status of network interfaces is changing.
Version: 1.2.0Do you use VPN? So surely you had cases when it was necessary to perform some action after the VPN-connection has been established, for example to run some programs.
Operating System: Windows
If you are a system administrator, than from time to time you have to add or to remove routes when VPN-connection is going up or down.
With the new Anseko NetCatcher it has become easy just like never before!
Try Anseko NetCatcher:
- Simple and clear interface;
- Run any commands in network interface(s) up/down event;
- Does not require special knowledge;
- It's free!
Example of use Let's say you work in your home network and you need to establish VPN-connection to access the corporate network of your company.
However, you want to use an access to the internet through your ISP, and use a VPN only to access the corporate network.
Assume that your PC in your ISP has got 10.10.20.5 IP-address, and a corporate network of your company uses 10.50.50.9 and 192.168.112.32 IP-adresses correspondently.
Assume also that 220.127.116.11 is your VPN-gateway and 18.104.22.168 is your VPN-connection IP-address.
If you specify "use as default route" in VPN-connections settings window, then access to the Internet will be through the VPN, a corporate network of your company.
If you do not enable this option, you can not get to the above addresses of the computers in your corporate network.
So what should you do?
With Anseko NetCatcher it could be solved very easily:
- Turn off the option "use as default route" in the settings of VPN
- Choose the name of your VPN
- connection in a window NetCatcher "Network Interfaces"
- Write commandsroute add 10.10.20.5 mask 255.255.255.255 $IProute add 10.50.50.9 mask 255.255.255.255 22.214.171.124in a window NetCatcher "onUP"
- Press "Apply" button
That's it! Now, routes will be added automatically when VPN-connection is established. Instead of IP you can use $IP and $GW - NetCatcher will replace them with actual value.
Version 1.2.0: 1.2.0 *** [*] very slow starting/closing application has been fixed
Version 126.96.36.199: 188.8.131.52 *** + $IP and $GW variables has been added. Now you can use them with constructions like "route add 10.10.10.1 mask 255.255.255.255 $IP" - when network interface is UP it will replace $IP with interface's IP address
