Nessoft PingPlotter Freeware

PingPlotter Freeware from Nessoft is a scaled down, free version of Nessoft’s two other PingPlotter commercial products, PingPlotter Standard and PingPlotter Pro. PingPlotter Freeware is essentially a graphical user interface (GUI) for the tracert/traceroute command line utility. It runs on all versions of Windows from Windows 98 to Windows 7 and 2008.

PingPlotter Freeware v1.30 was released on July 12th, 2010 and was the latest version available at the time of this writing.

As PingPlotter Freeware is meant to be a stepping stone to the Standard and Pro editions, its functionality and configuration options are very limited. However, it performs well as a simple graphical traceroute utility.
