Do you have a network either at home or at work? Then OstroSoft Internet Tools is a must have. It is an all-in-one package containing domain and port scanners, ping, netstat, a full ftp package, traceroute and ping utilities, both local and wide-area network information and statistics, a HTML source code viewer and many many more utilities. It also contains connection watchers for all open ports and services including mail and web servers.

It can be used to verify security in your network or for informational purposes. The port scan feature will alert you to open ports, which could be the result of Trojans or other unauthorized applications on your system and the traceroute utility will show you the number of hops and location of your favorite web site.

OstroSoft's Internet Tools is targeted for network administrators but through its simple easy to use interface, just about anyone is able to use and learn about networks.

The registered version, which is well worth the price, contains useful features such as command line scripting, the ability to save and output reports to various formats, and watcher alerts for various hosting services.
