Net Orbit Network Monitoring Software

© 2002-2015 Retina-X Studios, LLC.

Net Orbit 7.0 is an easy-to-use network monitoring platform that allows employers and schools to monitor and control network computer activities. As a result of using Net Orbit, administrators are learning about the computer habits of their network users and controlling usage to increase production, protect information, and curb bad behavior.


The Net Orbit platform consists of two parts. First is the client application which gets installed onto the computers that you own and have proper consent to monitor. The second is the Online Control Panel which is where you login to monitor and control your network computers.


Once it is installed, the Net Orbit platform gives an impressive array of monitoring and control features with unlimited scalability, all the while simplifying compliance-measuring with its intuitive structure, ultra-fast speed and portability.


This user guide provides detailed information on how to sign up for an account, how to install the client application, and how to monitor and control your networked computers using the Online Control Panel.


Note: When the word Network is mentioned anywhere in Net Orbit content on this site or anywhere else, it is referring to a more broadened term that means computers owned by one entity. That may cover Virtual Networks that are not necessarily connected to a Local Area Network (LAN). Net Orbit relies on each individual computer’s connection to the Internet so LAN can be used but is not required.

Logged Network Monitoring

Net Orbit organizes your monitored computer activities into separate logs for easy viewing. Each log lets you view all of the users at once, or you can select a specific user to view its activities alone. The logs can be exported to different file formats for archiving. And a powerful search tool will help when a specific activity needs to be found.
