BUILD 41

**THIS JUST IN, OR OUT…!**

Just moments ago Build 41 was released onto unsuspecting netool.io users. We have a red-eye witness report from Nate in the Developers Den. “Yup it works”. Back to you updates.

BUILD 41:

New feature and bug fix.

iOS/ANDROID APPS

The apps for both iOS and Android have been updated:

iOS App Store

Android App

Simple Router Mode.

Simple Router Mode allows connectivity to the network that your device is plugged into.  Your device’s WIFI will restart once you apply the changes.*

“Simple router mode is so that you can access network traffic from the Ethernet port from the wifi. This will allow you to use applications from your phone as if you were on that network.

We are using a simple NAT with a dns relay.” – Nate

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The option is located in: Settings – Ethernet Port

BUG FIX:

Fixed some cases where the APP was incorrectly showing that the port was down.

 

Manual has been updated to reflect the new build.

  1. “Simple Router Mode allows connectivity to the network that your device is plugged into. Your device’s WIFI will restart once you apply the changes.”

    That seems a little too simple in terms of explanation? Could you provide additional information as to how exactly simple router mode works? Previously, when connected to an ethernet port with the tool you could ping and connect to the network using the App.

    I guess as I finish this comment…what comes to mind is connectivity to the conneted network through the tool when connected to it via Wifi. So I could use let’s say another app on my phone to do a network scan when connected to the Netool.io device which is plugged into a port somewhere on the newtork? Just wanted to be clear on the functionality. Thanks for the updates!

    1. Chris, you are correct. Simple router mode is so that you can access network traffic from the Ethernet port from the wifi. This will allow you to use applications from your phone as if you were on that network.
