LANScan Frequently Asked Questions
I get an error running the demo, such as -
"Error creating configuration database. -3"
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed.
What about Windows XP?
Does LANScan support switched networks?
Why does LANScan take so much CPU time?
I need more demo time! Can you help?
Whats the difference between a Network and a Device object?
LANScan supports configuration of two data collection objects: a network interface and a device. A network interface is linked to a physical adapter in the personal computer running LANScan, and reports on all traffic passing through the adapter. There can be only one Network I/F per physical adapter in the PC. Events and real time data views for the Network I/F report on all traffic on the segment or connection.
A device can be created for any valid network address, including Media Access Control(MAC), Internet Protocol(IP), Domain Name(DNS) or Novell IPX. A device view reports only on traffic to/from the specific device and is used to monitor network traffic for specific addresses. You can define multiple devices which actually relate to a single network device. This might be done to support viewing different ranges and frequencies of trend displays on the real time views, for instance. LANScan maintains a table of related network names, and you can access it to see the relationship between a MAC, IP, DNS, IPX and/or LANScan device name. To do it, access a Conversation view, cright click on the device address in the conversation list and choose Address Details. Youll get a dialog displaying all related names for the device.
Ive assigned Network I/F objects to adapters. Why does the Assign Adapter dialog still appear on startup?
Why do I get so many System events in the Event log?

Can I monitor a Dial Up Adapter(Modem)?
