Northwest Performance Software’s NetScanTools Basic

NetScanTools Basic Edition is a free graphical utility for the following network query commands: DNS (simple IP/hostname translation, Who Am I? (shows your computer name, IP and DNS servers)), ping, traceroute, and Whois. It runs on modern versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 2003, and 2008).

As NetScanTools Basic is intended as a stepping stone to Northwest Performance Software’s other commercial products, it is comparably slimmed down and limited in its functionality. NetScanTools Basic v2.30 was released on Sep. 4, 2013 and was the latest version available at the time of writing.
