    Thumbs up Traffic Splitter app (like RouteSentry)

    I've written an application (in C# Express 2008) to split traffic for Windows users, which works much like RouteSentry. It works on Windows XP SP2 and newer versions of Windows, including Windows 7 x64.
    My aim was to create something like RouteSentry, but without all the shortcomings and problems that exist due to RouteSentry.
    Project home: http://code.google.com/p/traffic-splitter/

    Latest version, Traffic Splitter Beta 6.17:Setup guide for older version (Beta 6.6): http://gaming.do.co.za/articles/loca...width_cost.htm * The guide should apply to all newer versions too.
    Screenshots: Main tab, Options tab, Statistics tab & DynDNS tab
    Changelog: http://traffic-splitter.googlecode.c.../changelog.txt

    Features:
    • Splitting traffic of international/local/auxilary accounts
    • Easy updating of list of local routes (since Beta 4)
    • Quick testing of international & local IP addresses (since Beta 5.2)
    • Statistics per interface (since Beta 6.3)
    • Dynamic DNS updater for local account (since Beta 6.10)


    Prerequisites:
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 & Windows Installer 3.1 (or newer) are required for the application to run - both of which are included by default in Windows Vista & 7
      .Net Framework 2.0 (22.4MB) can be downloaded locally from this link.
      .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 (231.5MB) can be downloaded locally from this link.
    • The application requires administrative privileges to manipulate the routing table. The application would request administrative privileges if it doesn't have.
    • If you want to have more than 1 PPPoE connection to be connected at the same time, then you need to have to:
      • use RASPPPoE if you're on Windows XP
        I'm looking for someone to test the registry entry mod for Windows XP, instead of using RASPPPoE. See my post: http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showpost...7&postcount=93
        It won't hurt to import the WanEndPoints.reg file meant for Vista/Win7. In most cases that one would be the correct one, and not my WanEndPointsXP.reg!
      • modify the WANEndPoints in your registry if you're on either Windows Vista or 7. Simply download & import the following registry file to make those changes: http://www.quickshare.co.za/files/v2...oints.reg.html


    Nice to have:

    List of known issues with Beta 6.17:
    1. Sometimes the setup is unable to update the version, giving the following error: "You cannot start application Traffic Splitter Beta from this location because it is already installed from a different location"
      Solution A: Move the setup to the location where you've run the setup from in the first place
      Solution B: Uninstall the old Traffic Splitter version first from Add/Remove programs and then run the new setup from any desired folder
    2. No automatic updates, although it does have a button to check for updates
    3. No documentation
    4. Persistent routes not supported yet
    5. Critical: The adapters' state doesn't always update automatically, resulting in TS not automatically reconnecting.
      Resolved: Implemented a timer to frequently update the adapters' states, instead of simply relying on the RasDial ConnectionWatcher.
    6. Critical: The implementation of the timer (see issue above) resulted in my application using considerable memory after a while (like a couple of KB/s).
      Resolved: Fixed memory leak in IpxConfig library (that I'm using to get the network interface information from), which existed from the first beta versions!
    Last edited by Pada; 27-04-2011 at 06:30 PM. Reason: Updated to Beta 6.17 - Allowing updating to any auxilary interface
