NetTools NetWatchThe NetTools 3.0 console is easy to navigate. All principle tools, from the NetWatch utility shown here, to DNS lookup and trace tools are easily accessed from the prominent toolbar.
By placing independent icons for each utility within that tool bar, Axence has done busy systems administrators a favor: switching between utilities is quick and easy thanks to the console's design that places each applet just a click away. Administrators no longer need to switch between applications (or navigate numerous sub menus) to jump from viewing services information to reviewing DNS data. With NetTools, a wide variety of commonly used administrative tools are packed into a single console.
