    Today we are beginning the public beta testing of our newest software, WatchYourIP.

    WatchYourIP is an IP monitoring software that can be configured to watch for changes to your Public or Local IP address and send email notifications to as many people as you choose.

    Click here to view the watchyourip website for downloading and reporting information.

    Features:
    • Monitor Public and Local IP changes
    • Email users when changes occur
    • Customize email message to say exactly what you want
    • Change intervals of how often to check for changes
    • Customize text colors for unique appearance
    • Allow for running with Windows Startup and run in the background with system tray icon
    Please understand that this is version 0.1 of a public beta release. We are anticipating bugs being found. The website is also in beta status.

    We have made every effort to ensure smooth installation and running on Most Windows versions.

    To answer a few questions ahead of time:
    1. The IP addresses are obtained via the WinSock layer. Your public IP is gathered from the dyndns.org website and then read by the software.
    2. No personal information is transferred at any time outside of the software.
    3. A full scan of the executable and installer was made on the jotti servers with nothing found. There is no spyware, trojans or other malware packaged with this software. (screenshot available)
    4. For outgoing mail sent by the software, it requires you to input your mail server information the same way you would with your email client.
    We will closely monitor this thread as well as our support thread. Notifications of updates will be made as they are available.

    I want to thank you in advance for your participation.

    Thanks again,

    Andy Pugh

    Important Due to a database change required for this update, all saved information will be over-written. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Regarding Server Timeout
    I spent the weekend with a few different programmers and analysts to determine the cause of the server timeouts. It appears that it is an actual server timeout being reported. We were able to duplicate the message a few times on various systems/networks, but determined that it isn't a code related issue this time. This is by no means saying the code is perfect and the fault lies on their end, but at this time, we are stating that the code functions as advertised.
    Please do continue to report of any server timeouts you receive. We have now also included this issue to save to the error log for future analysis.

    Thank You
