QuotaMonitor is a tiny open-source wxPython application that sits in the taskbar and displays a graph of the monthly allowance remaining on the HT1000, some HN9000, and possibly the HT1100 series of HughesNet satellite modems. It works in the same way as the official HughesNet application (by querying a URL on the modem), but is much smaller (11kB). It also has no dependence on non-open-source technologies such as Adobe Air. I wrote it because HughesNet’s allowance meter (“status meter”) does not work well on Linux and I wanted something lighter.
Note that this software has only been tested with a HT1000 modem and a HN9000 modem with metered BonusBytes. If you have one of the “legacy” plans and an HN9000, this app may not work.
17 July 2013: Transitioned the project to the new website and uploaded to GitHub.
QuotaMonitor is released under the GPLv2 license. Contributions are welcome!
v1.4 (17 July 2013): quotamonitor-1.4.zip
You can also find the project on GitHub!
Many thanks to capnchaos64 at dslreports.com for adding support for the HN9000 series of HughesNet modems!
QuotaMonitor has not been reviewed by or approved of by HughesNet. It may break if HughesNet changes the way the HT1000/HN9000/HT1100 modem reveals information about its quotas. It may not be accurate. As such, it should be considered experimental, but it may be useful to some Linux HughesNet users. If in doubt, rely on the quota graphs at the System Control Center of the HT1000, HT1100 or the HN9000. It has been tested on SuSE Linux with Python 2.7, although it should be cross-platform.
