Application Window is not visible when logged into remote desktop

When you log into a computer remotely, by default you are only seeing the desktop of the user that you logged in as. Interactive services (including Firedaemon ones) are only visible on the console session.

Are administrative rights necessary to run FireDaemon?

The FireDaemon Pro/Trinity GUI’s must be run as an administrator to function correctly on Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server.  On Windows Vista, 2008 and 7 the GUI’s elevate correctly so the user should not need to be an administrator.

Services can be run as any user,  however the privilege of that user will determine whether the service can interact with the desktop, access network resources and so forth. As a rule of thumb services should be run as Localsystem (that’s the default). If network access is required then generally run your service as an administrator. FireDaemon will automatically grant user accounts “Log on as Services” rights.

Monitor and Control Bandwidth Traffic with NetLimiter

NetLimiter is a great application that displays bandwidth usage on a computer or server. It’s really useful when you want to see how much bandwidth a specific process is using.

You can use NetLimiter to set download/upload transfer rate limits for applications or even single connection and monitor their internet traffic.

Along with this unique feature, Netlimiter offers comprehensive set of internet statistical tools. It includes real-time traffic measurement and long-term per-application internet traffic statistics

There are 3 versions, all can display the bandwidth usage of applications as well as history graphs but only the shareware/full versions can limit bandwidth of processes (the shareware versions costs, while the Freeware version is free).
