Net Tools Review

Fernando Ortega
One of the most comprehensive set of network administration and network security tools
A review of Net Tools by Fernando Ortega

Net Tools is an impressive set of network monitoring software with more features, bells and whistles that you can shake a fork at.

This program is a freeware application with a focus on network monitoring and more specifically, monitoring the security of a network.

At first glace, Net Tools might be a little difficult to wrap your head around because of the sheer number of tools which are included in the pack. When we took a look at it, there were 136 different tools ranging from scanners, traffic monitors, an FTP client and network sniffer. Net Tools also offers 35 other tools having to do with encryption, comparison and steganography.

The program is also rather customizable, giving you the option to rearrange menus and the overall layout and design is simple and straight forward (if you're a network administrator).

The bottom line, some of the tools in this package are quite outdated, but overall a lot of the utility offered by Net Tools far surpassed that of even some of the most expensive network administrator suites.
