The NetResident Service runs in the background capturing network
traffic, analyzing it, and adding it to the database. The service
starts automatically on Windows startup and is active at all times.
Depending on the program configuration, it captures the traffic at
all times or only when NetResident is launched. This behavior is
configured in the Tools
=> Options, Network => Startup page in the menu. Please refer
to the Network : StartUp section
of the manual for more information.
Normally you don't need to start or stop NetResident Service
manually. Should you need to do so, the service can be controlled
from NetResident program group (Stop / Start NetResident Service items) or in
Control Panel => Administrative
Tools => Services.
