NetScanTools? Standard Edition is a collection of common and specialized internet utilities. Many of NetScanTools functions, such as Ping, Traceroute, and NSLOOKUP are very familiar to network professionals. The advantage they have over their command line counterparts is in the presentation and integration.

Features: Name Server Lookup (NSLOOKUP), Zone Transfer domain listing, Ping, Traceroute, Whois with automatic server selection, Port Scanner, Network Ping Sweep Scanner (NetScanner), Time Sync, Finger, Ident Server, NetBIOS Info and local shares, Daytime, Quote, Chargen, Echo, Winsock Info, Services and Protocols database checks, Telnet-like Terminal, Hosts file Management and "What's New At NWPSW"--a simple URL grabber.
