netTerrain offers network documentation features that makes things easier for everyone.
Let’s talk about the netTerrain IP toolset…what’s that? It’s a convenient utility that helps network engineers to easily connect to a device without having to remember all the details of the connection.
Say, for example, you’re looking at your network documentation. You see a device – maybe a server or a router or a switch – and you want to connect to it. How would you do it?
The time-consuming way would be to open telnet, or RDC or Putty (insert your tool of choice here), fire up said tool and pass it the ip address …and maybe some switches… and voila: you are connected. Lots of steps going on here.
With netTerrain, however, you can just click on a device, have it launch right away, and pass the IP address and switches automatically. The difference in convenience here kinda reminds me the difference between hunting down a cab company, calling them up, waiting for who knows how long…or clicking a button with Uber.
The enable IP toolset option controls the activation or deactivation of IP address-based programs executed from a client’s machine. Checking a box enables any programs configured within the IP Toolset apps.
Adding a new application in netTerrain is simple. You click “add new button”, type in the application name (whatever name you want your end users to see) and fill out the identifying info and appropriate parameters when prompted.
And…voila. Need to connect to a device in the future? No back and forth with a tool, no passing IP addresses, no remembering switches, starting the program, and entering info: just click a button and you’re in.
