Finding the Right Tools

One of the great things about Net Tools is that the interface is so simple that even moderate computer users should be able to find what they are looking for easily. The menu button is laid out to allow users to carry out a number of different functions such as exporting results, saving, loading or deleting the testing parameters that they have been working on and locking the screen rotation when the software is being used on a mobile device. A huge number of different platforms and operating systems are compatible with Net Tools and in effect this provides a one stop shop for networking and management.

Time to Get Networking

The fact that Net Tools is available as a free version means that both networking professionals and regular users will lose nothing by taking the software out for a test drive. Although some of the tools are missing from the free version, there is still plenty here to make use of and the few bugs that are present can be worked around without causing too much trouble.
