The Dude

The Dude is a powerful application designed to scan networks and monitor connected devices (laptops, computers, routers). The software has a good potential in terms of functionality, which we are going to tell you about in today's new review.

We will start by answering the question, who will need the program? - Mainly for system administrators (it is clear why), for businessmen, Internet providers and for users who want to "know" what is going on in the network processes (environment) of their device (for instance, if they organize a mini office at home).

The Dude for Windows

While monitoring the scanner identifies types and kinds of found devices, "draws" a map of found networks (any complexity) with which you can easily interact in the future. In addition, you can make your own maps and work with them.

I like the autonomy of the utility and its automatic mode of scanning in specified subnets, as well as the fact that the software gives a warning if there are any problems. If we're talking about the rest of the software features, they include:
  • compiling the network + type recognition ∕ device brands;
  • support for user icons and backgrounds;
  • working with SNMP, ICMP, DNS and TCP;
  • channel monitoring and others.
Help: runs on Windows 7 / 8 / 10, Linux.

A few words about the interface Mikrotik The Dude. It's quite laconic and has Russian language. In the main window you will find the main keys, commands (there are quite a lot of them) and tabs - 6 altogether. In fact, having the utility at hand, you can easily track any network changes, "ping" the connection and at the same time test it for reliability. There is a lot of necessary analytical information and specialized charts. The client is installed on your computer on a standard basis.

With this utility you will definitely improve the network environment and be able to control and manage your devices. The developers have recently set about improving their "child" with renewed vigor and therefore we are pleased with the new versions.
