Q7300007: What ports do I need to open in the firewall to enable communication between the ActiveXperts Network Monitor server (the Engine) and the ActiveXperts Network Monitor Manager?
Communication between Network Monitor Manager (the graphical application) and the ActiveXperts Network Monitor service (the Engine) is based on a Windows share. You must allow Windows Sharing through the firewall. Windows Sharing (or more correctly RPC/DCOM) uses TCP ports 135 and 445 as well as dynamically-assigned ports above 1024. The best practice is to use a packet sniffer like the Microsoft Network Monitor or SolarWinds to see which ports are required.

Q7300070: Every Saturday at 10:00 PM, a backup of all servers in our network is made. We want to prevent ActiveXperts Network Monitor from sending out e-mail notifications during the backup hours. How can we accomplish this?
To accomplish this, configure one or more 'Maintenance Schedules' in the 'Maintenance' tab in the 'Options' menu. Select 'day of week' and choose 'Saturday'. Also enter time and duration. All errors during this period won't be considered as a failure.
