Sounds like a program to monitor a network connection. This may or may not work on Linux depending on your network card's drivers. I would suggest attempting to install Wine 1.1.14 and installing the program through Wine. Then attempt to run it. If it does not run 'out of the box', you should look for your program (unless it is produced in-house) on the Applications Database to see if it will work, at all. The same exists for CrossOver for Linux on the CodeWeavers web site. Some programs will not run on Wine and Crossover due to the methods they use to access hardware.
