weird, I'll take a look at it through the next day or two cause I don't normally use it myself so i'll check and see whats going on

edit: it should have been /usr/share/IPMonitor/logs/ I put /root in there by accident.

edit 2: Yea I just noticed that it is creating a log file under /root/logs even though there is a log folder which its supposed to write the log to inside the IPMonitor folder but whatever I suppose it makes it easier being right inside the root folder. As for the sound notification I set it up and tested it on my computer and it worked just fine when I hit "test", and I also tested the popup notification which worked just fine.

Added a new pet for IPMonitor in top post , it's a little bit smaller but will only work on 32bit systems as opposed to the original which will work on 32bit and 64 bit pups. Also got rid of log folder in /usr/share/IPMonitor since it creates its logs in /root/logs

I had the same successful test. But, when the IP changes, I am NOT getting the audio sound alert that the IP has changed.

Edited: Wait, this "MAY" be a system related problem. Seems that when I start+stop a PMusic app, the IPMonitor test no longer work.

Just a note,even though its not a show-stopper. Maybe the developers know something as well.

I'll try the 32bit version to see if I get rhe same behavior. personally, I prefer the universal Java version so that I don't have to think about it. The cost is not major at all for me. But, others may benefit from the savings on download. The RAM footprint is not distinguishable. That's where it is important...not the download, for me.

thanks again for all of your guidance and help.

hope this helps.

The only reason I made the 32bit version was because I realized in the original pet I forgot to delete the Windows dll files (which were an extra 200kb almost) so I figured I might as well take out the 64bit wrapper and lib too since most users use 32bit puppies.

Thanks DPUP5520. That helps my understanding.

3 questions:
Here's current finding: If I manually cause the router to re-acquire a new Public IP address, that new IP is not recorded immediately by the IPMonitor. It does, though, pick it up some/many minutes later. Is there a published time interval that it uses?

How do I get IPMonitor to "remember" the options changes on its restart to the desktop? I do an "Apply" after changing the Options, but, if I should Exit the IPMonitor at some time in the future, all Options changes are lost.

I tried the 32bit version to see if I get rhe same behavior and I did.

Thanks again for all of your guidance and help.

hope this helps.

Yes as it shows on the main screen it only checks every ten minutes, it can be made to check longer than every ten minutes but not shorter (you cannot make it check every minute or five minutes but you can make it check every 15 or twenty) unless if the code was modified. As for your changes not being persistent I've noticed the same thing on my system and will look further into it.

IPMonitor sound is working fine on PUP525. The sound problem I have may be distro dependent or MAY have something to do with other programs which also make use of teh sound card impacting IPMonitor use. The Alert is occurring within that 10 minute window you reference. Thx

I will continue to try to give more information on why its working on one distro but similarly on others.

Hope this helps

gcmartin being a java app, IPMonitor is distro Independent, so in theory should work on all OSs exactly the same as long as they have the same java version/dependencies installed
