Let's explore how each of these IP tools will help you troubleshoot your network efficiently.
ManageEngine OpUtils' built-in IP Request tool is a part of the IP Address Manager module, which helps network administrators simplify their IP address management. With this tool, network operators can create IP requests, view the details and status of logged requests, and reference the details of all previous IP requests. This ensures the network is free from IP conflicts since the allocation and tracking of IP addresses are streamlined with IP Request tool.
Network admins can view IP address requests raised by all the IT operators, then choose to either grant or deny the IP request as required. Also, OpUtils enables network admins to change the specifications of the IP requests, such as changing the requested IPs or subnets, before granting the IP request.
This way, network administrators can effectively handle IP address assignments, reduce the risk of conflicts, and maintain a comprehensive record of IP address usage within the network, ensuring the network is systematic and secure.

Ping tools are an important set of IP tools that help inspect the connectivity of a host device on a network by using various protocols. The most widely used protocol is the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) ping. IP ping tools are used for checking availability, testing network performance, and troubleshooting.
Let's take a look at the IP tools included under OpUtils' IP Ping tools.
Verify the availability of a target host or server. This IP tool uses ICMP to send an IP packet to the device and determines its status. It operates by sending a sequence of ICMP echo requests to the host IP and awaits an echo reply.
Query and verify using the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) to check if an SNMP-enabled device is operating and network-accessible. Typically used for monitoring purposes, SNMP ping provides administrators with crucial management information exchanged between network devices and the network management system. OpUtils' SNMP ping tool helps network administrators collect essential details, such as status, IP address, DNS name, response time, and system information.
Verify if a device behind a proxy is online by pinging the Cisco router using the Proxy ping tool. This router acts as the proxy for the target device. By using a proxy ping, network administrators can check connectivity between a proxy device and the device behind it. This proxy ping setup helps check the availability of both the proxy device and the sheltered device by using a single ping. This is especially helpful in secured network infrastructures where devices are shielded by proxy servers. The OpUtils Proxy ping tool provides the network administrators with ping statistics like round-trip time (RTT), sent packets, received packets, and loss percentage.
Map the route taken by the data packets from the source to the destination. Network administrators can gain visibility into the path taken by a packet in a network with TraceRoute. This IP tool displays the number of hops the packet takes to reach the target device and displays the IP address for each hop. This information helps administrators identify latency issues and drill down into network bottlenecks.
The next set of IP tools are IP Address Monitoring tools, which help the network administrators to ensure efficient functioning of the network. These are the additional IP address management tools that help in tracking and managing the IP address space effectively. Here are OpUtils' IP Address Monitoring tools.
Translate a MAC address to its corresponding IP address with the MAC Address Resolver. A MAC address is a unique number embedded on the network interface card used as device identifier. This tool is especially helpful in environment where the network administrators wanted to troubleshoot the network by associating the MAC - IP details.
A MAC address resolver, when combined with Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) tool, will help the administrator troubleshoot the network more effectively. With OpUtils' MAC Address Resolver, verify the MAC address associated with a particular IP address by performing an IP lookup in your network address space. View details, such as MAC address, system name, system type, and more, on the MAC associated with the target IP address.
Resolve human-readable domain names into numerical IP addresses. A DNS resolver helps associate domain and hostnames with IP addresses and maintains an updated inventory. IP address management tools integrate DNS resolvers in them to automate DNS record updates, validate hostnames, and streamline various DNS-related operations. OpUtils' DNS Resolver helps verify the host associated with an IP by fetching the host of the node whose IP is known and vice versa.
Manage Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) scopes in a network efficiently. A DHCP server is responsible for the dynamic allocation of IP addresses within a network. A DHCP scope denotes a range of IPs that a DHCP server can allocate to its network devices and is a valuable tool for network administrators, as they provide insights to gain complete control over DHCP servers. OpUtils will help you pull IP scopes and relate your available and used IP addresses to your DHCP servers with DHCP Scope Monitor. Get a clear view of your IP address space by managing your server IP and DHCP servers combined.
Get a list of MAC addresses associated with the corresponding IP address. This list is updated regularly and maintained in the network to enable the efficient routing of data packets within a network. With OpUtils' MAC IP List, perform IP lookups to access details about IP location, MAC address, DNS name, NIC type, and more. View and manage your inventory information with the MAC IP List tool, which regularly updates this information. The details pulled by this IP tool can also be used to work with several other IP tools.
If you are wondering why network monitoring tools are necessary within an IP address management solution, it is because these set network utilities help network administrators understand the root cause of an issue by drilling down into the finer aspects of the network. They help in tracking and analyzing various aspects of the network and providing insights into potential issues, thereby enabling proactive management. Here is a list of OpUtils' IP tools for network monitoring.
Scan the devices in your network to understand the network composition, identify active and passive devices, and identify potential risks. Network administrators use network scanners to keep the network updated of the latest information. With OpUtils' Network Scanner, scan your entire IP address range with ICMP or SNMP, view the availability of devices, perform forward and reverse lookup actions, and more.
Ports are communication gateways in a network used by applications and services. Scanners identify the status of a port, helping administrators maintain a secure and well-communicated network. View details specific to your network ports, such as whether a port is open or occupied, services running on an occupied port, and responding ports using the Port Scanner tool.
System Explorer is a comprehensive network utility for the Windows operating system that provides administrators with more details about their system. Gain complete visibility into SNMP-enabled device details, such as system snapshot, process scan, software scan, and more with OpUtils System Explorer.
The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a vital and extensively used protocol used to promptly terminate an existing connecting of two devices. Reset unwanted TCP connections established between the switches and routers in the network with the TCP Reset tool.
Gain visibility into the details of your networked SNMP-enabled devices, and update or edit them using IP tools' network utilities. By specifying the SNMP write community, you can update the system details of a device by scanning its IP, or a group of devices by scanning a range of IPs. System Details Update updates the device details, including sys name and sys location, and also shows you its status. You can remotely update the system details of your network devices right from your OpUtils console.
SNMP tools are yet another set of network utilities that helps you monitor and manage the devices within your network. SNMP is a protocol that is used to fetch information about the network devices, which is then used for monitoring the performance, health, and status of these devices. Here is little about the network utilities under OpUtils' SNMP tools.
Fetch data from SNMP-enabled devices and display the information in a readable format with the Management Information Base (MIB) browser. Network administrators use MIBs to retrieve information related to system information, status, device configuration, and performance of the network devices. OpUtils' MIB Browser tool enables you to perform all SNMP operations, such as GET, GET-NEXT, GET-BULK, and SET. View, load, browse, and perform several operations on your network MIBs, such as load and unload, SNMP operations, view OIDs listed, and more.
Visually depict the performance metrics and gathered data from network devices using a SNMP graph. The graph helps administrators quickly understand performance trends and make informed decisions. OpUtils' SNMP Graph tool helps you view graphs of any SNMP IP node. This IP Tool gathers real-time data and draws a graph that also allows you to view information like object ID (OID), syntax, description, and more.
Display the hierarchical structure of MIBs with the MIB Node Viewer. MIBs generally structure details about network devices, services, and configurations in a tree-like format. A MIB node viewer allows network administrators to inspect these structures and understand the nodes for efficient network devices management. Using OpUtils' MIB Node Viewer, access comprehensive details of your OIDs such as the MIB module name, parent name, macro type, status, and syntax.
Explore the attributes, relationships, and details of these modules and understand the specifications and attributes of MIB modules utilized in managing the network devices. OpUtils' MIB Module viewer lets the administrator view snapshots of the target MIB, including defined attributes, total number of nodes, defined textual conventions (TCs), traps, and SMIv2-specific details.
Evaluate the community strings using SNMP with a community checker. SNMP-based community strings act as an authenticator, allowing the network devices to communicate with the network monitoring system. With OpUtils' Community Checker tool, get the read and write community strings of a range of IP addresses based on the predefined set of defaults and standard community strings for switches, routers, etc.
Use a trap receiver to receive traps using SNMP. SNMP traps are notifications sent by SNMP-enabled devices to the network monitoring systems, in response to any network issue. They alert the administrator in real time, allowing them to look into an issue immediately and solve it before it affects the larger network. OpUtils' trap receiver lets you collect, log, view, and analyze all the traps raised by network devices. These traps are collected by the trap monitor and sent to you in the form of SNMP trap notifications.
