A shared folder access monitoring program 10-Strike Connection Monitor (Pro) v1.6 has been released. What's new:
- Upon user requests, we developed a service application that monitors access to shared folders in addition to the regular GUI program. We added this service to the Professional Edition of our program and released 10-Strike Connection Monitor Pro. The monitoring service provides almost the same functionality as the standard GUI program 10-Strike Connection Monitor. It records access logs, rises alerts, and notifies an administrator via e-mail, sound, and screen messages. When you logon to the system, a regular tray program starts. With its help, you can configure the monitoring service (the "NT Service" section of the program settings) and view access logs.
- Added a mechanism for monitoring the creation and removal of files in a specified folder. Unlike the access monitoring mechanism, it cannot determine the user performed the operation. However, by analyzing the alert and connection logs, you can figure out which user connected to the folder at the time the file was removed.
- Added disconnecting all users with the number of resources being used equal to 0 after the specified time span. That can be critical when the number of such "dead" connections reaches the maximum, and new users can no longer connect to the resource. In this case, you can take advantage of the application?s capability to disconnect idle sessions.
- Added specifying a sender's IP address and computer name in e-mail notifications.

- Fixed printing all custom fields and inventory data in reports. Only the first three fields were printed.
- Fixed saving reports on the "Save..." button. The saved tables looked corrupted.
- Added sorting in the License Manager.
