Northwest Performance Software Releases NetScanTools Pro Version 11.20

Northwest Performance Software, Inc. announces the release of an update to their popular NetScanTools® Pro network engineer's toolkit software -

Sequim, WA, United States, 03/13/2012 – Northwest Performance Software, Inc. today announces the release of NetScanTools® Pro Version 11.20, a comprehensive network toolkit designed for network engineers, network administrators, network training instructors and law enforcement investigators. This release adds a new tool and improves existing tools.

The new tool introduced in Version 11.20 is called Country to IP or ASN. Use it to find the IPv4, IPv6 or ASN records assigned or allocated to a country. It joins Packet Flooder and the Packet Capture Playback Tool as new tools introduced since the initial release of version 11. The Packet Flooder sends randomized UDP packets as fast as possible to a target and the Packet Capture Playback Tool can playback a network conversation that was previously saved with our Packet Capture tool or with other tools that save in the Wireshark® compatible 'cap' file format.

Improvements to tools include the new ability to use Port Scanner with a list of targets. DHCP Server Discovery is now able to find DHCP servers on every network interface attached to a computer.

We have recently introduced a demonstration version of NetScanTools Pro version 11 and interested persons can now use it to get a more in-depth look at the software capabilities. The demo software is available now at our website.

"This release adds a new tool directly in response to a customer's request. A customer needed the tool and we delivered." said Kirk Thomas, President of Northwest Performance Software, Inc.

NetScanTools Pro is software designed to provide information about IP addresses, hostnames, domain names, email addresses and URLs automatically or with manual tools. Reports are viewed in the web browser for ease of printing, saving and sharing. NetScanTools Pro provides tools frequently used by network professionals on a daily basis. There are active discovery, passive discovery, packet capture, packet generation, and local system tools as well as tools like the extensive DNS toolset and Whois designed to retrieve information from third parties.
