Algorius Net Viewer Manual | Ports and Interfaces

General Information

Algorius Net Viewer allows you to easily connect devices with each other on the network map, specify ports and interfaces that are present in a device and shows which device uses which port when you drag a mouse over a device.

Such devices as routers may have several interfaces (addresses). Algorius Net Viewer allows to see their activity on a map around other devices.

If a port contains an address, it is a complete device: it is involved in the monitoring, you can execute external commands for it, assign notification, view reports, etc.

Interfaces

Such devices as routers may have several interfaces (addresses). Algorius Net Viewer allows to see their activity on a map around other devices.

Specify address and scanning method in port settings, assign the port to one of lines, that connected with the device. After that port will be automatically displayed next to a device right above the line, connected with this port. Green/Red indication shows the interface status (active/inactive).

This ports are full-fledged devices: they are involved in the monitoring, you can execute external commands for it, assign notification, view reports, etc.
