Hi All,

I've got a quick question which im sure has come up before... I tried doing a search but couldnt find anything.....

I was wondering what networking tools you use, and what you use them for. I'm referring to the WireShark's, the port mappers, MBSA etc anything and everything that you use for troubleshooting etc and anything in general that makes you're life easier....

    NetCat is the swiss army knife of networking. Although I don't think they have a copy right on the term. :) Good list though.

    I might add the PS Tools suite too.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    I used Look@Lan in my last job, it is an advanced ip scanner, it comes with look@host, this gets information about a single workstation like logon time , running services . etc.

    & it is a free.
