N.A.N.Y. 2019 / Re: cStatus a portable network scan and monitoring tool

Will cStatus become multilingual at some point in the future?

At the location where I work (in Paraguay) Internet is getting spotty at best. But when we ask for support from our ISP they usually sent over a crew to change the modem before even looking at the real problem. A waste from our time as well as theirs. We used to make dumps with WireShark to show them where things go wrong in the network, but the language barrier between the lowly tech support and real networking analysis software is vast, and I don't mean the barrier between Spanish/English unfortunately.

cStatus is much more digestible by tech support, who will hopefully push our problem more quickly to the required tech support level. Still, I would think that if there would be language support in the future, it would help out even more quickly.

Well, a multilingual feature (and many others) would be great in cStatus.

cStatus is donationware with no limitations or nagging, but given that I have received several emails from people, ranging from support requests to thank-you, who are using cStstus for business purposes and do not make donations, I'm not expecting to receive much support for this project.
I'm fine with that, it was the way I release it but there is no incentive in making more than the features I need for myself, and maybe a couple of "simple" requests.

Unfortunately, I have a busy "day job" and a family and very little time to dedicate to this "freeware" software hobby, usually the software's I release will have the features I need and use. And I'm usually happy to share with other people.

My To Do list for cStatus is huge and starts to look tiresome.
Looking at the current cStatus version, it suits my needs. And I'm starting to think I have already a nice polished usable tool.
There is one feature I really would like to include that would add a huge value to cStatus: a bandwidth measurement tool between 2 locations.
So I still plan soon to improve a couple of things and add that tool.

If for some reason cStatus tool supports grows I think multilanguage would be very important, but I really don't know If it will get there.

Just an FYI... Malwarebytes stopped triggering on your site.  :Thmbsup:

Yes, I had to send several emails to insist on withdrawing the malware flag or telling me what malware I had.
(And 2 or 3 emails were not enough , if you understand me)

Well malwarebytes replied the site was clean and they were going to remove the blockage, but they didn't...

Thanks KodeZwerg,

I'm working on several fronts in cStatus, one of them has to do with an option to be able to set different values ​​for default entries.
The ability to have several profiles and being able to change on the fly a profile for one or more entries is very interesting. Will  add this idea to my TO DO list.
Thanks again.

Thank for your troubleshooting I have now understood what was happening with you!

In the default configuration that was shipped with the software the timeout period of the entry was set to only 10 miliseconds!!
Because cStatus did not receiving a reply in less that 10 ms it was failing.

When you add a new entry the default timeout is 2000 ms (2 seconds) so no more problems.

My bad, will fix for future versions, will add other default entries that work:)

I don't have telnet installed. And because of security risks with that protocol I'm not intending to do that either.

My workaround is fine with me. It was just weird enough of an error to mention it to you, so you could keep track of it in your internal bug tracker  :)

If I'm to put this in my bug tracker I need your help tracking it, because I can't reproduce that bug, and noone else has reported it to me.
Security risk would be if you were using a "telnet server".
You can install the telnet client in your computer to test this, then if you want uninstall it.
Telnet client is a tool, you can use it to test many things not just telnet protocol.

The "telnet 53" will not start a "telnet protocol" session it will just try to connect to port 53 of the DNS server, and give me the information if it can connect or not.

About port 53 I use it as a method to detect Internet access on several sites and never had a problem, I can't explain why you cannot do it!

Want to know something really "funny"?  is the secondary DNS server from Google. So I thought "let's try their primary DNS server", so configured: port 53 which works like a charm. Retried their secondary DNS server again (for funsies) and you guessed it right. All (test) packages to that server are dropped.

Can't explain it either...but in any case, thank you for a tool that will come in handy when troubleshooting networking issues.

Can you "telnet 53" from your computer?

About my site,

I'm starting to get tired of this, but I'll try to summarize:
Bitdefender, Malwarebytes and SpamHaus have decided to "blacklist" because they say it has some generic "malware".
But +/- 60 other companies detect no malware or problems on my site/software.
I contacted the 3 companies asking them what spyware they are talking about, I have received zero replies.
I can't do much more but only say that my software and site are clean, use it only if you want.

On Spanhaus I could find the following information:
The malicious files can be found here: hXXp://
Maybe they think Clicador is a malware because it intercepts low level mouse and keyboard functions, and tries to fool programs into thinking they are being clicked. (which is the objective of the program)

About port 53 I use it as a method to detect Internet access on several sites and never had a problem, I can't explain why you cannot do it!

maybe because I don't have a SSL certificate...
If you have access to the server you can quite easily configure it to have a Let's Encrypt free certificate...


I don't know if this was the cause of the false detection, but at least the site is "secured"

You might want to get your site checked out- it's registering as a dangerous site with Malwarebytes, and a few others.


My site is very simple and clean, also my software is clean, I can assure that.

Can't do much about it. No idea why they say it has malware... maybe because I don't have a SSL certificate...

Usage & Installation
Run it from anywhere, portable!

Using the Application
Self explanatory.

Download Link

I released version but did not increment exe version.

I fixed the version and uploaded the new file.

Download again

I will try to explain:

Clicking inside app will not set focus on that app window.
The goal was not to loose focus of what you are doing!

For example, you are playing a browser game on chrome and you have to click on a specific coordinate of chrome browser to pick an object in the game every 10 seconds.
If at the same time you are working on a Excel file, you do not want to loose focus of Excel!

With "inside app.." you configure it to click on the handle of Chrome main window at specific inside coordinate X and Y every 10 seconds, and Clicador will send a clicking message without loosing focus of your Excel file.
If you use "move mouse and click" you will loose focus on the Excel file.

When using modes that say "at screen coordinate" or "where mouse" is you must capture Live information Screen position X and Y.
When using inside app you must use Live information handle position X and Y.

I have used a mouse clicker app called ClickWhen for a long time and found it useful. When a program's window has focus I can click on a point within that program window and set up ClickWhen to click on that same point -- a point relative to the program window not the computer screen -- every X amount of time. It will do this even if the program's window has lost screen focus, been moved, been minimized in size or minimized to the task bar. The effect is that every X amount of time, the program window is restored and the mouse clicked at the point within that window that I set up at first. It may be that Clicador can do this. I just don't know how to set it up to do that -- maybe because I don't know what an "application handle" is. So if you publish Clicador I suggest you include a help file that explains all the choices that can be configured. ClickWhen dates from 2007 and works on my Windows 7 laptop. Here's the website https://lifehacker.c...licks-with-clickwhen.

Clicador can do this.
It's the method called "Inside application at "handle" coordinate: X,Y"

You can use Live information: Start/Stop capturing Info to capture a program handle and the X and Y coordinate inside the app..
There is a short description on how to do this on the program.

More bugs to report:

  • Every second (while a config is running) the tooltip will disappear and reappear shortly thereafter.
  • Every second (while a config is running) the scrollbar will jump to the top and then back to the correct position.

Both seem to be related to the main window refreshing itself, possibly in connection to updating the timer window(s) while Clicador is running.

I fixed that bug:
Clicador Version

New features:
[fix] While a config is running no longer will the tooltip flicker and no more scrollbar jump


The method I use now, is for Clicador to monitor for a process named Logonui.exe.
LogonUI.exe implements the graphical user interface shown when a user presses CTRL-ALT-DEL and when a user is asked to log in to the local machine.

On terminal servers or computers with multiple sessions or when you are connected by remote desktop  it is always running and Clicador thinks that CTRL-ALT-DEL is being pressed.
On local single sessions logonui.exe should only be running before login and when pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL.

This is not perfect and I need to improve this in the future.

For now if it does not work for you you can disable this option. The option should be saved when closing/opening Clicador.

I had a need to automate some clicking and started using Clicador "intensively".
I found a couple of bugs and small features I needed to add so I made a new version:

Clicador Version

New features:
[fix] Added a main form minimum resize limit
[fix] Detection of Ctrl-Alt-Del was not working
[new] Option to Auto minimize main form when starting clicking
[alt] Close Clicador when clicks are finished option is now stored on XML and when closing/opening Clicador
[new] Clicador will now hide its forms, while showing the random area click preview
[fix] Minor fixes


Thanks for all the work you've put into Clicador so far. I appreciate it. It's a nice little app. :Thmbsup:
No problem, thanks for your support.
If you continue to use it, report any bugs you find, and I will try to fix them.
In the future I will probably pick it up again, improve it and add the features I mentioned. (At least for me they look useful)

Clicador is going to be one of the best tested and polished apps for NANY 2019 !
I maybe had a little head start ;)

Clicador Version

New features:
[fix]   Editing or deleting an item will not reset scroll anymore
[fix]   When cloning a configuration it will now clone the enable state
[fix]   When deleting a configuration and no item is selected the buttons are now disabled
[fix]   Some labels text have been corrected

Development for Clicador is stopped indefinitely. I think it's stable for now, enjoy!
