About Essential NetTools
Essential NetTools is a set of network tools useful in diagnosing
networks and monitoring your computer's network connections. It's a
Swiss Army knife for everyone interested in a set of powerful network
tools for everyday use. It includes:
* NetStat: displays a list of your computer's inbound and outbound
network connections, including the information on open TCP and UDP
ports, IP address, and connection states. What makes it different from
other NetStat utilities is the ability to map open ports to the owning
application. Configurable alerts for incoming and outgoing connections
are also available.
* NBScan: a powerful and fast NetBIOS scanner. NBScan can scan a
network within a given range of IP addresses and list computers
offering NetBIOS resource-sharing service, as well as their name
tables and MAC addresses. Unlike the standard nbtstat utility supplied
with Windows, this tool provides a graphical user interface and easy
management of the lmhosts file and features parallel scanning, which
allows checking a class C network in less than one minute. NBScan can
facilitate routine tasks often carried out by system integrators,
administrators, and analysts.
* PortScan: an advanced TCP port scanner that allows you to scan your
network for active ports. This tool features both conventional (full
connect) and stealth (half-open) scanning modes.
* HostAlive: a network monitoring tool that periodically checks if a
host is alive and running network services, such as an HTTP or FTP
* EmailVerify: checks if an e-mail address is valid by communicating
with the corresponding mail server over SMTP.
* Shares: monitors and logs external connections to your computer's
shared resources, lists local shares, as well as provides a quick and
easy way to connect to remote resources.
* SysFiles: a convenient editor for the five important system files:
services, protocol, networks, hosts, and lmhosts.
* NetAudit (NetBIOS Auditing Tool): allows you to perform various
security checks on your network and/or individual computers offering
the NetBIOS file sharing service. This tool can help you identify
potential security flaws.
* RawSocket: provides you with the ability to establish low-level TCP
and UDP connections to troubleshoot and test different networking
services. Multi-color output and a convenient interface make it a
great tool for every network administrator or computer programmer.
* TraceRoute and Ping: these familiar utilities featuring customizable
options and convenient results presentation allow you to explore the
Internet and troubleshoot connectivity problems.
* NSLookup: allows you to convert IP addresses to hostnames and vice
versa, obtain aliases, and perform advanced DNS queries, such as MX or
* IPBlackList: checks if an IP addresses is included in various IP
address black lists: SPAM databases, open proxies and mail relays,
etc. This tool helps you figure out why a given IP address is rejected
by some network resources, such as mail servers.
* ProcMon: displays the list of running processes with full
information on the program location, manufacturer, process ID, and the
loaded modules. With this tool, you can view CPU utilization
statistics, identify hidden applications, kill running processes, and
manage the usage of your PC's resources more effectively.
* SNMPAudit: Advanced SNMP device scanner. It allows you to locate
SNMP devices in the selected network segment quickly and receive
customizable data sampling from each of the devices. You can use SNMP
browser for examining a device in detail.
Other features include report generation in HTML, text, and comma
delimited formats; quick IP address sharing between different tools;
IP address geolocation; a comprehensive System Summary window; and a
