    Unhappy Installed Private Eye Network Monitor and nothing??
    Hello All,
    I downloaded and installed Private Eye like all mac apps, downloaded, installed fine. It asked me for the Admin pw when installing so I'm guessing the permissions were done correctly?

    Open the app, it doesn't react to anything. launch a new browser window, nothing in the applications section of the Private Eye where the video and youtube say the activity should show.

    I'm expecting ok maybe because these other apps are all open before PE comes into play it doesn't go and look at what's active (that would be lame though) but then I launch several network traffic browser windows, zoom meeting app, mail app, password manager sync app, no activity.

    The preferences are greyed out and so are most of the other tools on the pull down menues. Looking for support got me Radiosilence, no Private Eye support that I could find. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    MacOS High Serria, MBP MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012)
    2.7 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB

    Thank you for any comments and suggestions, I'm learning..

    I tried to find out what I could about the Private Eye Network Monitor. It appears that it's no longer supported and very likely out of date for High Sierra. My advice is to uninstall it. If you need a good Network Monitor I suggest "Little Snitch" which works quite well.

    Why not try radiosilence?

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    I'd say that's a pretty good understatement Charlie considering it was last released 10 Oct 2011 and for "OS X 10.7 or later". And I'd sure question the "or later" support!!

    Thank you All for the info, sounds like fun ya old. Little Snitch Iíll try, Iím looking for lite traffic monitoring, so I can tell if slow browser due to high volume on the wire or slow processing due to huge download or whatever. Iíll read radio silence and little an reviews. Iíll let you know the final assessment. ThNk you again
