NetScanTools (tm) Basic Edition Released May 14, 2009

What? another NetScanTools?

Yes. When we stopped producing NetScanTools Standard 5.1 in August 2004, we left a whole lot of registered users without any alternative. Business users who wanted to move up opted for NetScanTools Pro, but many, many home and small business users could not justify or afford the upgrade, so they either kept using on NetScanTools Standard (yes, we still hear from people who have used it for years) or they found something else.

Two weeks ago we decided to make a new program using the latest Visual C++ 2008 compiler along with an updated interface -- that's right two (2) weeks ago. Now there is a new program created from almost scratch and it is completely finished! And it works fine on Windows 7, Vista 32/64, 2008, 2003, XP and even Windows 2000.

This new tool has simplified versions of six tools: Ping, Traceroute, Ping Scan, Graphical Ping, DNS Tools and Whois. They are very usable versions of more advanced tools found in NetScanTools Pro. There are embedded web pages comparing the NetScanTools Basic versions of the tools with the NetScanTools Pro versions. Plus we show you what other tools are available in NetScanTools Pro -- just in case you are interested.

It is now our entry level program.

And it's freeware. Try it. Enjoy it. And don't forget to give us feedback on the About NetScanTools Basic page.
