This is a (depricated) OS X startupitem for darkstat,
the excellent opensource packet-sniffer by Emil Mikulic

stats available long before aqua loads!

This startupitem allows you to have darkstat run automatically at bootup. I cobbled it together on OS X 10.2.2 for darkstat 2.1, but it should work for any version of OS X.

Help yourself, instructions included..

But unless you have some compelling reason to use this old version, I definitely recommend you grab the latest OS X package from here.

If you have installed my OS X package, DO NOT use this startupitem; there is one included (and automatically installed) in the distribution.

And do check out the darkstat website.

Welcome to!

Since switching hosts (I hope you are alright, Ed! Wherever you are …) quite a few things seems to be wonky.

Juggling two energetic boys (of very different ages) on Coronavirus lockdown, I'm unlikely to have them all fixed any time soon. Mail me! to prioritise!
