NetworkViewGet is a useful tool with the help of which you can get a full graphical map of your network!
NetworkView is a compact network discovery and management tool for the Win32 platform : in a few minutes, it will discover all TCP/IP nodes and draw a full graphical map (including routes) using DNS, MAC addresses, SNMP WMI, NetBIOS and TCP Ports information.
It can also poll the network and send an email when nodes are unreachable. With more than 11000 entries in its SNMP and MAC addresses databases, it can be used from a FLOPPY DISK ! Full print and print preview capabilities for maps and lists. Customizable menus and more.
Here are some key features of "NetworkView":
Floppy and/or USB key usage
· The program, including the complete SNMP OID and MAC OUI databases, can be used from a floppy disk or USB key. In fact, NetworkView is composed of just a single executable (~800 KB) and 4 other data files (including the help and license !)
· Three types of discovery: single address, range of addresses, full subnet. Choice to use DNS, MAC addresses, SNMP, Port scan or analysis, NetBIOS and WMI. Customizable retries and timeouts. ICMP not required to discover behind firewalls.
· Powerful map updating using either DNS name or IP address as the permanent identifier, and automatic/interactive removal of obsolete nodes.
· A complete database containing more than 20'500 enterprises and sysObjectIDs. Fully editable, with add, delete or modify capabilities. NetworkView also has an internal hard coded list of devices frequently found in networks.
· Detection of MAC addresses on your LAN. An editable database of more than 7'500 NIC manufacturers. Each OUI (organizationally unique part of the MAC address) can be associated with a node type.
· A graphic box is displayed for each node acting as a router, showing the addresses of the connected networks. You can add a comment next to the IP address (building, city, country..).
· NetworkView analyzes five standard TCP ports to get more information about the nodes: FTP, TELNET, SMTP, HTTP, POP3.
· You can choose to scan three additional custom ports to be analyzed.
· NetworkView scans any range of TCP ports, both during discovery and manually using a Port Scanner in the contextual menu.
· Full print and print preview capabilities for views and lists, producing high quality network color maps of any size and any density. Choose the number of nodes you want on a single sheet : between 10 and 300.
· Multiple Document Interface lets you view and/or monitor several networks at the same time. Each view is simply a container that can hold any node from any subnet. For example, a node 192.168.10.1 can be in the same view as 10.1.1.1.
· Simultaneous monitoring of several networks through ICMP polling. Four states: UP (green), DOWN (red), UNKNOWN (blue) and NOT MONITORED (white).
· The nodes can be sorted by TCP/IP address, MAC addresses, DNS name, NetBIOS domain, Enterprise/Device, sysName, sysObjectID, Type, and real time monitoring status. A Find button helps locate the nodes in the map with their name or IP address.
· You can send a SMTP email to one or several addresses when a node becomes unreachable
Alerting with external utility
· Use any external utility (net send, pager..) to send alerts. Two modes: an alert for each event or a network summary.
· You will be warned of UP and DOWN events with chosen .wav files, little built-in music or simple beeps.
· Each network node is classified as a general type with its corresponding icon: Server, Workstation, Unix station, Router, Printer, ... There are currently 23 icons available. A icon can be associated with each entry in the OID and MAC OUI Database.
· Manual addition of nodes: you can add one or several nodes manually. Routes can also be added manually on devices if you do not have the correct community name for an automatic discovery. Text can be entered to describe each node.
· A lot of parameters can be customized: general discovery behavior, network and color options, size and number of the nodes in the map, email and sound alerts, color or BW printing, custom ports, custom contextual menus, WMI classes and credentials .
· Eight fully customizable lists (plus one fixed) are available:
· Standard, MAC addresses, SNMP, Port analysis, Port scan, NetBIOS, WMI, Summary and Addresses and Routes.
· Print and print preview available for all.
· Eight fully customizable label set are available. Choose any of the field found during discovery.
· 3 lines are available with 1 or 2 fields per line. Display the second field only when the first is missing with the 'Or' option.
· Proposed Label Sets are: General, MAC Address, Hardware WMI, NetBIOS, WMI Disks, Contacts and Note, Discovery Dates and Network.
· A Mib Browser lets you get/set any value from your MIB2 or proprietary MIBs. You can export the result to the clipboard or a text file. Ten favorite OIDs can be saved for future use. Symbolic names are supported.
Interactive port scanner
· A port scanner lets you check which ports are alive and export the information to clipboard or file.
· Support of up to 16 values (a class and a column name) that can be queried with WQL. Eight different accounts can be stored and used for accessing the nodes in different domains/workgroup.
· Full interactive WMI browser. Connects to a local or remote node, retrieves all available Win32 classes, and gets the values for a selected class.
A List Editor to modify the preset lists. A Message Editor to change the content of the emails and alerts. A Menu Editor to change the externals programs callable from each node.
· Four different logs available in the menu : UP and DOWN events, discovery, emails, and SMTP errors.
· Stand alone multi-threaded 32 bits C++ program (one single exe, and no DLLs or COM components from us). Nothing is stored in the registry unless you register the NVD file type.
· Windows 2000 Professional, Server or Advanced Server, Windows XP Home or Professional, Windows Server 2003 Standard or Enterprise.
· Windows NT 4.0 Server or Workstation with SP6. The Microsoft SNMP service (from standard NT4 CD), the Windows Script 5.6 for Windows NT 4.0 and the WMICore 1.5 (both downloadable from Microsoft) must also be installed.
· A resolution of 1024x768 or better is preferred
· Windows 95, 98, ME are not supported.
· 30 days trial
