    new user looking for some help.
    i have recently installed the free version of unipeek msn monitor
    i have a small home network consisting of 3 wireless machines and a desktop with a wired connection to a d link router/modem. i can see msn logs and conversations on the machine the monitor is installed on but none from the other machines. can anyone point me in the right direction. i thought i was able to install on one machine on the network and be able see all other connections. the host machine runs vista and i have passed promiscuous test on my wireless adaptor

    I'm sorry but the Unipeek MSN Monitor dose not support wireless network, so you cannot see networked machines in such network. We record your requirement, and will consider to add it in the future development.

    Yes. You need to set mirroring port on the router, and then connect Unipeek MSN Monitor to the special port. Finally you can monitor other machines in the network.

    It depend on whether the D link router support mirroring port. The port mirroring configuration of the router may differ from others, please refer to the documentation that comes with your router for information on the availability of this feature and the configuration instructions.
    Please access the link below for more details.
