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.

Apache Hadoop is a key technology for gaining business insights from your Big Data, but the penetration into enterprises is shockingly low. In fact, Apache Hadoop and Big Data proponents recognize that this technology has not yet achieved its game-changing business potential. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, John Mertic, director of program management for ODPi at The Linux Foundation, will explain why this is, how we can work together as an open data community to increase adoption, and the i...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
