TamoSoft announces the immediate availability of the next version of its popular network analyzers for Windows 2000/XP/2003: CommView 5.3 for wired networks (download at HNS) and CommView for WiFi 5.3 for wireless 802.11 a/b/g networks.
CommView and CommView for WiFi are powerful network monitors, analyzers, and protocol decoders. The intuitive interface teamed with a very high level of usability make these products popular among a wide circle of users: from system and network administrators to students studying network protocols, from special police and army units to security-minded home users. Loaded with many user-friendly features, CommView combines performance and flexibility with an ease of use unmatched in the industry. It helps network professionals maintain efficient network data transmission, deploy LANs and WLANs, test firewalls and intrusion detection systems, or identify problems with network-based applications.
The newest CommView versions integrate high-precision geolocation technology that provides real-time IP-to-location mapping. This functionality, not yet available in other network analyzers, allows the user to see the geographic location of the IP packets captured by the application, which is helpful in analyzing application connections and security incidents. Other new features introduced in version 5.3 include customizable e-mail alerts, a more flexible GUI, automatic detection of unauthorized Ad Hoc networks, support for Intel Centrino wireless adapters, and a few other improvements.
