Windows Networking Tools: The Complete Guide to Management, Troubleshooting, and Security explains how to use built-in Windows networking tools and third-party networking products to diagnose network problems, address performance issues, and enhance the overall security of your system and network. It starts with a review of the major components of the TCP/IP protocol suite, as well as IP and MAC addressing, to provide a clear understanding of the various networking tools and how they are used in a LAN and a TCP/IP networking environment. Although the book focuses on built-in Windows networking tools, it also investigates a number of third-party products that can enhance the performance of your computer. It identifies tools to help you to understand the traffic flow and operational status of your network , illustrates the use of numerous tools, and shows you several methods to protect your computers from malicious software. It also examines one of the best programs for examining the flow of data on a network—Wireshark—and explains how to use this program to scan for open ports and discover vulnerability issues. In addition to helping you gain insight into existing problems, the text highlights built-in Windows networking tools that can help to determine if you can expect future bandwidth bottlenecks or other problems to occur under different growth scenarios. Placing the proven methods of an industry veteran at your fingertips, the book includes a chapter devoted to software programs that can enhance the security of your network. It explains how to negate the operation of unwanted advertisement trackers as well as how to minimize and alleviate the various types of hacking—from keyboard loggers to network viruses. In the event your computational device is lost or stolen a cryptographic program is described that results in data becoming meaningless to the person or persons attempting to read your stored information.

Over the years, thousands of tools have been developed for debugging TCP/IP networks. They range from very specialized tools that do one particular task, to generalized suites that do just about everything except replace bad Ethernet cables. Even better, many of them are absolutely free. There's only one problem: who has time to track them all down, sort through them for the best ones for a particular purpose, or figure out how to use them?Network Troubleshooting Tools does the work for you--by describing the best of the freely available tools for debugging and troubleshooting. You can start with a lesser-known version of ping that diagnoses connectivity problems, or take on a much more comprehensive program like MRTG for graphing traffic through network interfaces. There's tkined for mapping and automatically monitoring networks, and Ethereal for capturing packets and debugging low-level problems.This book isn't just about the tools available for troubleshooting common network problems. It also outlines a systematic approach to network troubleshooting: how to document your network so you know how it behaves under normal conditions, and how to think about problems when they arise, so you can solve them more effectively.The topics covered in this book include: Understanding your network Connectivity testing Evaluating the path between two network nodes Tools for capturing packets Tools for network discovery and mapping Tools for working with SNMP Performance monitoring Testing application layer protocols Software sources If you're involved with network operations, this book will save you time, money, and needless experimentation.
