Specifying which network interface to use.


Question

I have multiple network cards on my computer. Is there any way to target one specific interface using PingPlotter (or maybe different ones when tracing to different targets)?

Solution

Note: The following information currently applies to versions 4.12.0 and older of PingPlotter.

The answer to this is 'kind of'.

Some of our packet types can have the source IP address specified, but there are a number of limitations.

This capability is implemented using the extensibility system in PingPlotter Pro. To enable this capability, follow these steps:

Closing and restarting PingPlotter Pro should keep the settings you made.

It's not entirely intuitive in how this works, so please feel free to ask if you have any questions or issues.
