G'day,
I randomly boot Pups each day but have a limited Internet download account.
Many newer Pups have the monitor in front of the Earth globe icon which when hovered over tells me the monthly status of my Rx & Tx but presumably only for this particular install.
Where is this Rx/Tx data stored and can I link it to many Pups from a common source?
Thanks,
David S.

My ISP keeps that data for me.
At any moment I can login to m y personal zone and inspect how many times I connected and what the download/upload volume was.
Yours don't do this?

G'day Béèm,

Yes, our ISP does keep a daily record of our ups and downs for our single account.

However, if I change the definition "Our" to "Hers" and "Mine", our ISP can not differentiate, whereas "she" does, or wants to Confused .
So I'm hoping to be able to split the daily downloads between mine and the total logged by our ISP Very Happy .

Hence my query about the internet wizard icon with the pop-up monthly Rx & Tx totals - where are these data stored and can I use a symlink to combine them for all the Pups on my computer?

Well, in your initial post, you didn't mention you shared a connection.
1 - you could see with your ISP can give multiple logins in a single contract. Cool (unless you asked already and didn't tell us)
2 - I know there have been discussions about totals. Well minded search might be of help. I don't know where the info is stored.

davids45, if you are using 5.2 then one of these bandwidth monitoring tools listed on ubuntugeek.com might work for you. I have not had a chance to see about getting any to work on puppy yet. I might give it a shot later on tonight.
