Ok, maybe not all . . .
IP Search Toolbar: All the Tools Your Browser Doesn't have
IP Search Capabilities and Features:
System Tray Icon: IP Search
Toolbar creates a small floating toolbar and places an icon in the system tray.
The toolbar can be easily banished from your desktop and just as easily
retrieved by double clicking on the system tray icon.
DNS Lookup: IP Address / Hostname lookups.
Finger: Allows you to specify the finger port. Results
from Finger and Whois queries go in separate windows from which they can
be saved, printed or copied to the clipboard.
Whois: Allows you to specify the whois port and server or
to choose from a modifiable a list of servers.
Ph: Retrieves email, telephone and other information from
any Ph server. Updates the Ph server list from the Internet.
Time: Retrieves exact time. Can synchronize your PC's clock
with an Internet time server.
Ping: Yes, ping.
MultiPing: Ping up to a whole subnet at once. Unlike
other scanning utilities, IP Search doesn't Ping the machines one at a
time. You can PInG an entire subnet in a few seconds, and you can
choose how long to wait for replies.
SOCKS 4 Support: All functions except Ping/MultiPing can be
used through a firewall using the SOCKS 4 protocol.
Non-blocking: Ever notice how Internet programs hang temporarily
during certain network operations? Netscape users, does this ring
any bells? I hate that! Which is why this program never does
that! You can cancel any operation instantly, and operations don't
affect eachother, e.g. you can finger somebody and do a whois query at
the same time.
To install IP Search Toolbar:
Other software you might want to use in conjunction
with IP Search Toolbar:
SocksCap: A freeware program
from NEC that lets you use a SOCKS 5 server with software that doesn't
know about SOCKS 5. This is useful if your SOCKS server requires
authentication and won't accept SOCKS 4 requests.
Winsock 2 SDK:
From microsoft, includes Winsock 2 for Windows 95, which allows raw sockets
(and hence Ping). The standard Windows 95 Winsock doesn't allow
pings (you are forced to use Microsoft's icmp.dll, which sucks).
This is a link to Microsoft's FTP site, but read their license agreement
(hey, it's your soul, do what you think is right). Regular Ping will
work whether you have this or not, but this is required for MultiPing under
License, Bugs, Updates, and other stuff:
This version of IP Search Toolbar is free and you are welcome to distribute
it, but, of course, I retain the copyright. Read the License.txt
file that is in the zip.
If there are features you think should be added or changed, or if you
have any ideas for a better name for this program, or if you think it blows
and you feel like taking the time to tell me so, please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. On the other
hand, this isn't a commercial project, just a, well, a, um, passtime or
hobby or something, just something I felt like doing, so I don't promise
to do anything more.
