Network Analyzer NDIS Server runs on a standard PC (400 MHz, 256MB memory or better) running Microsoft Windows® 98, ME, 2000, XP or NT 4.0 (SP5 or greater). One or more of these software agents can be accessed and controlled from Network Analyzer Software or Network Analyzer Software - Professional Edition acting as a client and running on a separate (remote) PC, or on the J6800A Network Analyzer.
It allows the collection of LAN data in promiscuous mode and performs various analysis tasks.
It runs on PCs using off-the-shelf network interface cards (NICs) as measurement interfaces for 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet and Token Ring LAN. For example, the 10/100 PC Cards (PCMCIA cards) found in most PC laptops can be used as the test interface for monitoring the LAN network traffic, even while this card is simultaneously providing the network connection for the PC to that LAN.
It acts as agent software for the Network Analyzer Software or Network Analyzer Software - Professional Edition acting as a client.
It delivers the same measurements on the remote PC as Network Analyzer Software delivers froma NIC on the local PC.
