Those don't ring a bell. The host machine had to be running apache, as
that application would create a webpage that was updated as often as you
wished. There were boxes with the hostname and IPaddress. If good, the
box had a green background against text. If something was amiss, the
background was red. You could click on the box to check the logs of that
host. I used it for my localnet back in the BBS days. But you could have
a thousand client machines as well, just a lot of webpages. Free
application, too. I wish I could remember the name of it. Ric
