Smile Someone Please create this software! Network Watcher


Hi there everyone! This is not a question, but more of an appeal. Someone who is a software dev guru out there - please create a Linux version of Nirsoft's Wireless Network Watcher!
Tried a lot of stuff available, and settled in the end for Angry Ip Scanner. But nothing beats Wireless Network Watcher... simple GUI, sound notification of new connections, ability to enter user text.
Can someone please create a Linux version!
Thank you!

I tried it out. It looks nice and sees some of the devices on my network, but not all. I think I'll stick with what my AP reports and what my DHCP server reports.

Rather then attempting to create a wholly new program, I would suggest making a feature request?

I'd see if Nirsoft is still around and ask them to compile the program in linux. If you can find the sources then you might be able to do it.
