Command Line Parameters

You can use command line parameters to perform the following operations when the program is being launched:

· Load and activate a rule set from a file. Use the "/ruleset" switch followed by the file name and full path, e.g.:

CV.EXE /ruleset "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\Rules\POP3Rules.rls"

If a file name or its path contains spaces, it must be enclosed in quotation marks (" ").

· Load and activate a WEP/WPA key set from a file. Use the "/keyset" switch followed by the file name and full path, e.g.:

CV.EXE /keyset "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\WLAN3Keys.wep"

If a file name or its path contains spaces, it must be enclosed in quotation marks (" ").

· Use the specified folder for storing log files. Use the /logdir switch followed by the full path to the folder, e.g.

CV.EXE /logdir "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\Logs"

· Launch the application without the prompt to install the driver. This is useful when you use CommView for WiFi for loading logs collected from other computers or for connecting to Remote Agents. Use the /noprompt switch, e.g.

CV.EXE /noprompt

· Connect to one or several remote agents. Use the "/ra" switch followed by the IP address or hostname of the Remote Agent you'd like to connect to, followed by the password in quotation marks, followed by the channel number that should be monitored (the channel index is 1-based, i.e. if you need to monitor in scanner mode, use "1"; if you need to monitor the first channel, use "2"), e.g:

CV.exe /ra 192.168.0.5 "MyPassword" 2

To connect to multiple Remote Agents from the same CommView for WiFi instance, use a batch file that should look like this:

START "CV" "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\CV.exe" /noprompt

PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 5000 >NUL

START "CV" "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\CV.exe" /ra 192.168.0.1 "pwd1" 5

PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL

START "CV" "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\CV.exe" /ra 192.168.0.2 "pwd2" 5

PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL

START "CV" "C:\Program Files\CommViewWiFi\CV.exe" /ra 192.168.0.3 "pwd3" 5

PING 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 1000 >NUL

This script launches CommView for WiFi, waits for 5 seconds to make sure that the application is loaded (we use the PING command to pause because there is no direct way of telling a .BAT file to pause), then we pass to the application the IP addresses, passwords, and adapter numbers of three Remote Agents (with  one-second pauses).

You can use all of these parameters, except the last one, at the same time.
