Network Troubleshooting Made Easy

By: Flexbyte Software


Troubleshooting IP networks has never been simple. Various LAN adaptor settings, router and firewall configurations, DNS and TCP/IP settings are just a few things to mention. UNIX administrators enjoy a variety of command-line tools such as netstat, arp, ipconfig, ping, and traceroute providing basic information about network configuration and performance.

Windows administrators have access to the same command-line tools. However, they fuss about them instead of enjoying these legacy command-line utilities. Network information is only scarcely available in the Windows graphical user interface, but is never assembled in a single place.

NetStat Agent (http://netstatagent.com/) makes diagnosing network connections and troubleshooting connection problems a snap. Combining and enhancing a number of functions provided by the command-line utilities, NetStat Agent gathers all information about the network and connection configuration in one place. You will never need to go back to using netstat, arp, ipconfig, ping, traceroute, nslookup or whois tools from the command line!

NetStat Agent allows network administrators to monitor TCP and UDP connections, diagnose connection settings, troubleshoot network configuration, and obtain information about network resources such as remote hosts and domain names. The built-in Whois tool queries domain names for exact information about their owner, and allows checking whether a domain name is taken or still available without visiting any domain registrar's Web sites.

Not limited to displaying just network configuration and current settings, NetStat Agent also provides dynamic statistics and logs TCP and UDP connections with full information about each applications opening a connection. Suspecting a virus or Trojan? It's easy to figure out exactly what process maintains a particular connection, obtain the path to its executable and DLL files on the hard disk and determine where in the world the connection terminates. NetStat Agent collects and displays network and TCP/IP statistics, logging and aggregating data such as sent and received TCP and UDP packets, the number of ICMP messages, sent and received IP datagrams, and more.

Network administrators can change many network settings without leaving the NetStat Agent interface. A unique feature of NetStat Agent is the ability to change MAC addresses of network adaptors, or restore their original physical MAC addresses if they were changed from somewhere else.

If you need an all-in-one tool to monitor and troubleshoot a network, NetStat Agent is the ideal solution. Featuring comprehensive functionality combined with a full graphical user interface, NetStat Agent will be appreciated by new and experienced Windows network administrators.
