Essential NetTools is nothing more than a set of small but very useful programs designed to diagnose and detect network security problems. The tools can be used not only for diagnostic purposes by network administrators, but also by ordinary users to monitor any network connection. Composed of their next utilities:
PortScan is an advanced tool called a port scanner that searches for active TCP ports on your network.
The NetStat utility is designed to display all available information about incoming and outgoing connections to the network. Also shows the status of each connection, open UDP and TCP ports and network addresses.
NBScan is a very fast and advanced NetBIOS scanner. Can search for machines that share NetBIOS by scanning a specified range of network addresses.
The Shares tool shows all available shared resources on your computer. A log function is available.
HostAlive tool is designed to monitor the performance of any remote computer, as well as to test the performance of running on it HTTP and FTP servers.
The NetAudit utility allows you to automatically audit the security of machines (or the entire network) that use the NetBIOS service.
EmailVerify lets you verify that any email address is correct. Verification is done by sending a request to the appropriate SMTP server address.
The RawSocket tool is used for testing network services and troubleshooting network operation due to the possibility of low-level installation of TCP and UDP connections.
In addition to these tools, there is also an editor for important Windows system files and a utility for working with wireless network adapters and Wi-Fi networks. It is also worth mentioning the presence in the set of other very useful tools - Ping, NSLookup, ProcMon, TraceRoute, SNMPAudit and IPBlackList.
