I am looking for some network tools for windows. Most of my toolkit is linux tools, but have a need for windows based network tools. Trying to troubleshoot troublesome connections on a remote windows system. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Sysinternals has a small network section here

I use Wireshark for most connection stuff. What kind of connection issues are you dealing with?

connection interuption/packet loss. Trace routes and ping only do so much. Original issue is mute at this point. the datacenter where my server was hosted at experienced a power outage over the weekend. Fried a lot of boxes including mine. Currently getting server back up and running at another co-location. Still, having good info to troubleshoot is nice for when these problems occur.

Have wireshark now. Any suggestions on using it? I'll dig into it later today when I have more time.

thanks,
Starjax

I got ya. With Wireshark all I use is the capture then some exclusions but I mainly use it just to track down communication between devices, and check the tcp handshake stuff like that. Also using the port mirroring on a switch is ideal for wireshark.
