Hurricane Electric Announces Free Network Tools App for iPhone® and Android™

Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv6-native Internet backbone, announced today the release of its latest network app, Network Tools, enabling users to analyze numerous network functions such as a server’s DNS records.

The free HE.NET Network Tools mobile app is available for iPhone®, iPad®, and Android™ devices. The app brings a range of networking tools to mobile devices in a single app, and may be downloaded by going to Apple’s AppStore and Google Play and searching for “he.net network tools,” or by going to http://networktools.he.net. The phone app contains a variety of functions, enabling users to gather and view data about their device’s current network state or a server’s DNS zone record, find the route packets take to reach their destination, and get information regarding domain registration, among other tasks.

Additional functions of the Network Tools app include:

  • Ping: Send ICMP packets to a single IPv4/v6 address.
  • Ping Sweep: Send ICMP packets to an entire subnet range.
  • Traceroute: Find the route packets take to reach your destination.
  • Progressive Traceroute: Get detailed statistics for a given route.
  • Port Scan: Scan a list of custom or pre-defined TCP ports on any server.
  • SSL/TLS Information: Check used protocol, ciphers and certificate information (iOS).
  • Whois: Get information regarding domain registration.

Best of all, the app is free of any advertisements.

To help users of the new app, Hurricane Electric has uploaded a short video preview of the mobile app and added a section on forums.he.net for questions and discussions about the HE.Net Network Tools mobile app.

“The release of this new mobile app strengthens Hurricane Electric’s commitment to the networking community and will better help users identify and understand networks from their mobile devices,” said Mike Leber, President, Hurricane Electric. “The app lets users quickly diagnose network problems, easily run traceroute, ping, port scan, and more.”

Last month, Hurricane Electric announced that its global Internet backbone now circles the earth, enabling lower latency and increased performance between European and Asian networks, and a redundant path to get to Asia from Europe and vice versa.
