Chapter 16. Internet Diagnosis Tools > Third-Party Utilities

Third-Party Utilities

If you want to be really well equipped to handle Internet and general networking problems, you can buy third-party utilities that are really much easier to use than the standard ones built into Windows. I really like WS_Ping ProPack from Ipswitch Software (http://www.ipswitch.com). This one utility packs almost all the TCP/IP tools into one graphical interface and adds other features such as whois for domain registration lookups, SNMP probing, and network scanning (see Figure 16.3). The registration fee is $37.50 U.S. for a single-user license. I rarely use or like add-ons like this, but I use this program every few days for one reason or another, and it quickly made my "must have" list.

Figure 16.3. WS_Ping ProPack is a great shareware utility, with many of TCP/IP debugging tools wrapped up in a graphical user interface.
