Windows Firewall and ShixxNOTE

April 8, 2009 1 comment


Windows 7 Firewall security settings where you must click Allow Access button to enable sending and receiving notes
If you have Windows Firewall activated on your computer and it is “On”, after ShixxNOTE program first start you will probably get Windows Security Alert dialog. If you have Windows 7 installed then you will get dialog (first picture above) asking you to allow access to ShixxNOTE program ; if you have Windows XP then dialog (second picture) will appear asking you to unblock program (check the picture above). This is normal because ShixxNOTE is multi-thread client/server application (LAN messenger). You can send note and receive notes to others in your LAN. For sending and receiving notes ShixxNOTE program communication port must be open. So if you get this dialog you have to click on Unblock or Allow access button to enable sending and receiving note(s) feature. After you click Allow access (Windows Vista/7) or Unblock (Windows XP) ShixxNOTE program will be added in Windows Firewall – Exceptions dialog and will work properly in your network.

Windows XP Firewall security dialog where you must click Unblock button to enable sending and receiving notes.
If you have Windows 7 installed then you can open Windows Firewall with Advanced Security dialog and if you allowed access to program you will get dialog like picture bellow.

If you click Cancel or Keep Blocking button then you will not be able to receive notes from others. Because Windows Firewall will block incoming note data for ShixxNOTE program.

Also you can always open ShixxNOTE communication port “2000” manually in “Local area connections” – “Advanced tab”. If you don’t know how write me and I will help you.If you have any problems with sending or receiving notes in program, check your firewall settings first. If you didn’t fix the problem ask your network administrator to help you.

And finally write me if you have any problem regarding sending and receiving notes, or any other problems with program.

Save your own note theme

April 8, 2009 Leave a comment

If you click (right mouse) on note you will get note menu with many options. One of them is “Theme” which contains submenus with few default themes. And when you click on i.e. “Green”, selected theme will be applied on note. Maybe you didn’t know but you can create and save your own theme under some name and then in Theme submenu you will get new created theme listed. This is the way you can create your favourite theme(s) with other colors for note and for note title. Here in this picture you can see that I have more that 6 custom themes which I like and use. “Blue Invert Cool” is my favourite. You just need to change colors and go to “Theme -> Save Theme as …” option, you will be asked for a name for your custom theme and that is all. Your new custom theme will appear under Theme submenu always.

In program there is plenty of options you can use to customize your notes. So investigate program options and you will see how many cool stuff can be done with notes.

ShixxNOTE Network Enabled Sticky Notes

April 2, 2009 Leave a comment

ShixxNOTE 6.net is a desktop sticky notes (post-it) program, that allows you to keep desktop sticky notes, and also send them across the network (or Internet) to friends or colleagues. The program runs in client/server mode and transmits messages or notes to selected ShixxNOTE clients on the network. However, you can also send messages to machines that do not have ShixxNOTE installed, in which case the program will automatically use the standard XP/2000 Windows Messenger service to deliver the message. It also includes alarm options that allow you to be reminded of selected notes, and support full formatting of font, color and appearance of the notes. Other features include a reply option, emailing of notes, note export, printing and more.

ShixxNOTE 6.net is a personal organizer, desktop sticky notes (post-it) program, instant messaging application (LAN messenger) and a communications tool used across a local network (LAN), Internet and via e-mail. Easy to use personal info management application and powerful communication tool. It features an alarm, backup and restore function, and many other features. It is configurable and stable. It is multithread client/server network tool that lets you display notes on your desktop and send them through your LAN, Internet or via e-mail to other users. You can write anything in note, like what you want to do today, or something you want to remember. Note color, size, font, paragraph format and other settings can be changed. Custom note colors (themes) can be saved. You can set an alarm and expiration for any note. Also you can export and import note(s) to or from file. When you send note to other users, they will receive exactly the same note on their desktop if recipient have also program installed, otherwise program will use Windows Messaging Service (Net Send, WinPopup) and on recipient computer message box will appear with note text and sender name. It is powerful and most simple way to communicate with your colleagues on work or with your friends on the Internet. Program starts at system Start-Up and it is visible as a tray icon.

 So at the end I must say that I am proud, because ShixxNOTE 6.net (developed in Visual C++ 6.0) works on every Windows operating system from Windows 95 to newest one Windows Vista. And you can send and receive note(s) without worrying which Windows operating system is installed on other computers in your LAN.
