What is the name of Windows service of EasyNetMonitor SE?

What is the test (emulator) mode?
This is a test mode for configuring notifications, e-mail messages and actions.
Mode is activated if the text file enm_emu_offline_list.txt exists in the program folder.
In this mode, the service stops sending the real ping command to all hosts
and gets information about "lost connection" hosts from this file.
Addresses of this hosts are listed at the beginning of the lines in this file.
All other hosts are "online".
In this mode, the actual e-mails will be not sent and actions will be not started.
However, the information that the email should send and the action should run appears in the emulator message box.
This emulator message box opens automatically.
The addresses in the file should be at the beginning of the line.
For example: google.com
This means that hosts google.com, cnn.com, vk.com are "lost connection".
If the address is not in the beginning of the line, that it is "online".
For example: google.com
Hosts cnn.com and vk.com are "online". But there is no connection to google.com.
You can open the file enm_emu_offline_list.txt in the text editor (Notepad),
make changes and click "Save file" without closing the editor.
If the program is installed in the Program Files, then run editor (Notepad) with administrator rights please.
Please rename or delete this file to stop test (emulator) mode.
It is not necessary to restart the service EasyNetMonitorSrv.
