Network Pinger Tutorial

This is a small tutorial about some of this software's functionalities and about its windows, and how to use it. There will be some separate pages below, for a deeper study on certain functionalities or tools.

Main Window

This is the Network Pinger starting window, and it's in this window that we can launch all the other tools and windows. From this one we can start tools like the Mass Ping one, Single Pings, Traceroute, Port Scanner, WMI Queries, Whois to Domain Names and IPs, DNS and Reverse DNS, and contains also tools like the Network and IP Calculator, process and navigation automation, etc.

It's also through this window that we can customize commands, and even customize remote connections, choosing what software we want to use and integrate on Network Pinger for those connections, and how to customize commands for easy access on a daily basis.

Navigation/Browsing Automation

Here we have a small help on the Navigation Automation, and how it can be useful to us, to make the software navigate through certain pages, and allow us to populate thousands of hosts and ping them all with a single mouse click. It's useful in cases like when we have a corporate page in a company (or someone's personal page), with a list of hosts divided in sections, where the user should have to choose an option and submit the HTML form to obtain the list of hosts corresponding to it. The software will download the list of sections, and allows the user to select those sections directly on the software itself, and with a single click of a mouse, whenever an option is selected, download all the hosts from the list, and start pinging them, without opening a single page, in an effective and quick way.

The automation can be useful also to download everything that may be a domain name or IP inside a simple text file on the Internet or in the local computer, or to download hosts from HTML tables. There is some theory to learn referring to this functionality, everything described on its help page.

Port Scanner Tool

This is the window of the Port Scanner Tool, and it is in this window that we can do a portscan to a single host. It has many functionalities, as a list of ports inserted on the software's database so that we can have an idea of the possible use given to certain ports that might be found open in a host. It has also a graphical visualization of the response times from each port tested.

Whois Tool

This is the Whois Tool window, where we can do Whois requests on domain names, to see their register data, or Whois requests on IP addresses, which will search all the respective entities of each continent, like RIPE, ARIN, etc, and that can indicate us to which continent and country an IP address belongs, as well as the entity that is responsible for it, in a quick and effective way.

WMI Queries Tool

This is a very useful tool for the execution of WMI Queries, whether to remote machines through authentication, whether to the local user machine. With the possibility to select with the mouse a group of predefined WMI classes and divided in many categories, or even WMI classes that might not be already predefined in the software itself but that are defined by the user by hand. It contains also a list of all WMI query classes inserted on the software's database.

DNS and Reverse DNS Tool

This tool is very simple to use and it can do name resolution (DNS and Reverse DNS) tests. Just by putting a name in the small text box, as a domain name for example, the software will simply resolve the name to its IP address, and when putting an IP address, it will do the reverse process, it's said to the user which domain is associated to that IP address. It may not look as much useful at the beginning to have it as one of the main tools at the main window, but when using it through the menus, as for example clicking in text results in hosts, domain names or IP addresses inside the text editor with the mouse, it could be a very useful functionality, and also quick and handy.

Navigator Browser

This is the Navigator, a web browser embedded in the Network Pinger software, and it's represented by the icon at left, which contains a Caravel, a new type of vessel invented by the Portuguese in the 13th century when they gave birth to the Discoveries Age and that took them away to discover the world, it is a tribute to them. Here is a help on the functionalities that this browser has to give us.

Text Editor

This is the Network Pinger's own Text Editor, which gives us access to all the network tools included in this software with a simple mouse click on any word which might be a domain name or an IP address, so that we just need to do any simple click on an IP address or domain name in a text to have access to a menu with many tools ready to be executed on the selected host in a quick way. It's accessed also on the other tools windows, where we can call this text editor with a single click on the text editor icon, which will open the text editor with the report already prepared of the operation done in that tool, with charts included, ready to be changed, saved and/or printed.
