is a simplified and free implementation of the more complete Duax Pro
software. The main purpose of the program is to provide an audible alarm when an Internet connection is established using a dial-up modem.
is especially useful if you have more than one computer connected in a local area network that is sharing a single modem. Without an audible alarm one of the computers (the ones without the modem) or some software running in the background might establish unintentional and unnoticed modem connections.
Duax Lite also shows your own IP-address and the time spent online during the current Internet session.
Installation and use
Installation is automatic: just double click the file Setup.exe. However, for the program to start
automatically each time you boot your computer, you should put a shortcut to it in your Startup group.
Uninstall using the "Add/Remove Programs" applet in the Control Panel.
When Duax Lite
is running (it normally is as soon as you boot the computer unless you didn't put a shortcut in the Startup folder or you clicked the Exit button) it will automatically start up whenever a modem connection to the Internet is established and it will audibly inform you about it.
Clicking on the "Hide" button minimizes the application and a flashing telephone will then be visible in the system tray as long as the modem is online.
Left-clicking on the phone icon in the system tray restores the application to its normal size.
Windows 9x or higher, dial-up modem, Internet connection, soundcard.
Duax Lite is freeware for non commercial use.
