Nowadays technology development every days. I choose the firstproject which is about monitor and analysing network. There are a lot of toolsavailable and its open sources in internet. I try some of them and I choose thebest one that help me to get details about network.
Firstly, I will displaysome tools which are famous and mostly use. Secondly, I will explain in detailsabout the tools which will be used in this project. Thirdly, I will comparebetween two networks in order to see the different between them. Finally, Iwill explain what the main benefits is and how to use these tools in ethicalway. There are many tools available in the internet to monitor andanalyses network. However, some of them are dangerous because it show verysensitive details about network which might be attack by unauthorized access.
These are main and famous tools mostly used:§ WIRESHARK Most popular protocol analyser for (packet capture, packetanalyse).High level analysis, traffic sources, traffic volume. Analysing packets in-depth and conversation details, protocoldebugging. § ANGRTY IP SCANNER:This application mostly use to scan about open ports and activeports in the network.
It’s easy to use by adding any IP address and it will displaydetails about that IP. § NETMON.CA:It is very powerful website which allow you to get details in depthand it’s mostly connected with real device in the organization.
Main use for itto check about networks errors and connection about every single device in thenetwork. Also its represent the rate use of users and all details about theircomputers. § NETCRUNCH:It is an application for monitoring network with all details and itis easy to use by adding the range of IPs then it will show you the details.Actually, I show this app to do my project because I didn’t face any problemwhile I am using and also it is very helpful by giving you informationdirectly. Now I will start explain about Netcrunch with some screen shotpictures. Firstly, you need to download the application and the register usingany account like Gmail are Facebook.
After that it will open automatically andthen you can start pinging. – Pingscanner, after entering the IP address range it will present all IPs in thatnetwork with domain name as it shown below. – NowI will click on DNS audits which will show me the IPs with domain name whichare available. DNS its mean convert numbers with characters to make easy foruse and remember. – Nowhow we get the subnet mask of the any IP. There is button its calculate thesubnet mask an represent it in table and shown below: – SNMPscanner, simple network management protocol.
This button use to presentinformation about other devices such as printers, hubs, switches and routers. – OpenTCP port scanning, Transmission control protocol it is define how computerssending data and packets to each other. In this app there is button show you everyIP connected with TCP.
– Networkservices, the application also represent which IP address has the networkservices. – Now for monitoring the rate of users in term of downloading anduploading on the internet I use another application which present direct and ineasy way in called NetWorx. Also I will use ICMP tool for pinging and present the rate of thenetwork and uses of computer. The application is called PING MANAGER.
Then I will compare it with another network using this tool.First network1: – AlsoI can add network range so it will present how all details about max rate andtracer. Second network2: Finally, I would like to say that learning new things will increaseknowledge and experience which allow you to perform better. In this project Ilearn how to use network tools to monitor and analyse it. Also if I face anynetwork problem I will know from which device came so it is easy to detect.Moreover, we need to be careful with these programs I mean use it in ethicalway In order to protect the network so If I face any open port unused I have toclose it because unauthorized he/she will be able to join the network.
