  • Updated SQLite to 3.21.0
  • Updated database files.

1.52 - March 6, 2015

  • Added test for active WinPcap prior to launching Packet Capture utility.
  • Revised to work with Windows 10
  • Changed operation of Port Scanner/Scan Common Ports to scan only the current protocol type selected, ie. TCP, UDP or TCP+UDP.
  • Improved Whois operation for IPv6 queries.

1.51 - February 1, 2013

  • Revised to work with Windows 8.

  • Revised documentation.
  • Updated SQLite to 3.7.15.2

1.50 - February 16, 2012

  • Most tools now load their settings when first viewed. This will result in a faster program start after you select the database.
  • It now checks for running tools on exit and warns you if they are running.
  • Automated Tools: Pressing the Stop button before all tests are complete now correctly ends the testing process.
  • Automated Reports: added Jump to Automated button to go quickly back to the main Automated tool.
  • Improved Whois logic and added IPv6 query capability.
  • Bulk Resolver: clear list of DNS button now works.
  • Added header column drag and drop for all grid based results. To use this, run the tool to get results, then click on the header and use drag and drop to reorder the columns. Then you can save or print or view in a web browser. When you run the tool again, the original column order will be restored. Example is traceroute or ping.
  • DNS Tools - Core: IPv6 notation now accepted by Test Default DNS. Get Basic DNS Records now retrieves IPv6 AAAA records.
  • Port Scanner: corrected logic for displaying messages relating to AV programs intercepting port 25 and 110 email communications.
  • Packet Capture: now captures IPv6 packets and provides basic IPv6 decoding.
  • Whois: fixed DNS queries so that only requested DNS records are displayed. Same fix also added to DNS Tools Core, Bulk Resolve, and Real Time Blacklist Check.
  • All tools using list import have a faster import process.
  • All menus on the menu bar are now fully expanded by default.
  • All MAC addresses show using the dash notation, ie. 01-02-03-04-05-06 instead of the other notation that allows colon characters. This was done to avoid confusion with IPv6 addresses which require colon characters.
