Hi Steve and other Windows users,

I have created a Daemon that could be very useful for you.

> *	Set polling intervals from 5 minutes to 60 minutes.
*	Have the option of minimising the daemon to the taskbar or hiding it
altogether (accessible via the system tray).

All you need to do is remove the 'RunAsDaemon:' option in your config,
create a batch file to execute the "perl  mrtg  mrtg.cfg" command, point the
daemon to the batch file and set your polling time.

The program is available now, if you want to use it please reply.

The program size is just under 3mb (self extracting RAR file)
