NetStat Live
Have you ever wondered just how fast your network connection is? Not just how fast the modem is connected at, but how much data you can actually get? Does your internet connection sometimes seem slower than normal? Forget hacking the registry or using counter-intuitive tools to get the information you want - enter the world of AnalogX NetStat Live (NSL)! NSL is a small, easy to use TCP/IP protocol monitor which can be used to see your exact throughput on both incoming and outgoing data - whether you're using a modem, cable modem, DSL, or even local network! NSL doesn't just stop there, it lets you see how quickly your data goes from your computer to another computer on the internet; it even will tell you how many other computers your data must go through to get there! But wait - there's more! NSL also graphs your CPU usage of your system! This can be especially useful in identifying if your computer is what's slowing things down, or if it's your internet connection.

ListShares is a simple application with admittedly limited appeal. ListShares provides a quick and easy way to view all the shares on the current or remote computer. ListShares is designed for and only works on a local area network (LAN), and does not work across the Internet. Of course the question is, why would anyone want/need to view information about all the shares on a given computer? Well first sharing files on a computer can be dangerous. Many LAN-based viruses spread themselves by "infecting" files accessible on shared folders. Thus knowing which folders are currently being shared is an important security measure to protecting a computer from viruses. It is true that Windows provides the ability to view all shares on a given machine, but this functionality is not easily accessible. Most users do not know how or where to access that information. So ListShares makes this task very simple. Also, ListShares allows you to view all shares on a remote system, something the built-in Windows method does not support. It should also be noted that ListShares lists all shares, including "hidden" shares.
When you first start ListShares it displays information about all the shares on the current computer. Click "Refresh" to update the information. To view all the shares on a remote computer, enter the computers name and press "Refresh." ListShares will connect to the remote machine and display the share information, including hidden shares.

DSynchronize is a stand-alone utility that let you periodically synchronize two or more folders in a LAN.
Is also possible to specify the time and the day on which the sync have to run, and to create some 'filters'.
There is also an option to add the date and time of the sync to the name of the folder, to obtain a series of backups, classified by date and time.

SoftPerfect Network Scanner
SoftPerfect Network Scanner is a free multi-threaded IP, NetBIOS and SNMP scanner with a modern interface and many advanced features. It is intended for both system administrators and general users interested in computer security. The program pings computers, scans for listening TCP/UDP ports and displays which types of resources are shared on the network (including system and hidden).
In addition, it allows you to mount shared folders as network drives, browse them using Windows Explorer, filter the results list and more. SoftPerfect Network Scanner can also check for a user-defined port and report back if one is open. It can also resolve host names and auto-detect your local and external IP range. It supports remote shutdown and Wake-On-LAN.
