MonitorWare Console - Network Scanning Tools
Article created 2004-03-22 by Tamsila-Q-Siddique.
With the purchase of this module's license, you will have three Network Scanning Tools:
- PortScan Tool
- TraceRoute Tool
- Ping Tool
PortScan Tool - The PortScan tool is a very powerful one to check open ports of a target.
The results of the PortScan are added into a "List View" with the port
number, a description (if available), a response (if there is any) and the time
that a particular scan took.
TraceRoute Tool - The TraceRoute is similar to the "tracert system command" of Windows. You can use
it to trace back all hops between your machine and a remote machine. The results
are displayed in a Listview, and you can see detailed output in a large textbox
at the bottom part in a window. It contains a few options that are similar
to the ones that are provided in the System tracert command.
Ping Tool - The Ping Tool can be used to ping a host over the ICMP Protocol. It contains a few options that are
similar to the ones that are in the system ping command.
