Go to your Line Monitoring page. Click on the "Setup" link and than click on "edit" on the right side of the page. You can than type in your "Note" in the "Public comment" box. Be sure to click on the "Update Monitor" tab when you are done.

Re: Charter HSI Line Monitoring - It's free

I only just noticed my post was moved. My apologies for the apparently OT post; the question was asked in the context of preparing for line monitoring and I thought it came under the umbrella of requesting additional instructions, per skj's original post. (may I plead brain melt with outrageous heat we're having???)

I'll follow up at the new location and then come back when I'm set up for monitoring.

Thanks.

Not a problem. Making your post into a new thread makes it more prominent and thus more likely to be read and followed by our forum members.

Thank you.

The connection section setting up line monitoring asks for an email address for alerts. Is this something I should fill in and if so, with my address or something else?

Also I upgraded to a premium account, but the monitor is still under a basic account setting, does this matter?

I'm with markopoleo as far as becoming "pingable." I keep remembering the time when the two Charter techs came out to install my broadband cable. Everything went well until one of the techs asked if he could hook up their cable box directly to my computer as they normally do (bypassing my router), so that he could show the new-hire how things are "normally" connected. About 20 seconds later my anti-virus program popped open a window warning of some sort of virus or trojan attack. That was the very first time that had ever happened, and although my software firewall caught and stopped the "attacker", I am VERY hesitant to make my router pingable.

Has anyone else using line monitoring had trouble with viruses, trojans, etc? Thanks.

I'm surprised there's been no response to this yet. Making your router "pingable" doesn't change the fact that your equipment is still sitting behind your router. It will show a "I'm home" signal to anyone scanning your IP, which is debatable in terms of security.

The reason your software firewall triggered when the tech hooked up the modem directly is because he bypassed your router which was blocking most (if not all) of the every day nonsense that is the world of viruses and trojans seeking new victims.

Since the average home router doesn't allow inbound connections w/o an associated outbound request (unless you configure it otherwise), these "attacks," or scans never make it to the software firewall on your computer(s), so no "alarms" are ever triggered.
