Network Magic

August 8, 2009

How many of you consider yourself good at managing a network? I’m guessing that it is more of a necessary evil for most of you. In addition, it is probably a bit of a struggle.

Over the years, the networking tools in Windows have improved. Yet they are still more complicated than they need to be for many common tasks. I think it was about three years ago that I discovered Network Magic and I’ve been a happy user ever since. Since there are multiple flavors of the product, I linked to a comparison chart so you can decide which version is best for you. There are trial downloads so you can give it a whirl before spending money. Keep in mind that you the license allows you to use it on multiple machines in your office.

It is nice to use the network map to see exactly what devices are connected to your network. Maybe you’ll discover a device that shouldn’t be connected. Need to connect to wireless networks? You’ll find a very streamlined process. Want to share files or printers? Not a problem! Give it a look, I think you’ll find it an essential tool for your network.
