vxUtil is a suite of network/internet (IP) utilities. These utilities allow you to
perform network related trouble-shooting and other functions.
IP Utilities include:
DNS Audit can help you locate DNS database errors.
DNS Audit will scan a range of IP addresses and perform a reverse DNS lookup for each address.
If it receives a DNS response for an address, it will then do a forward DNS lookup and verify
that the forward and reverse DNS records match.
You can use Lookup to obtain information on host names and IP addresses.
You can use Finger to obtain information about a user or host (if supported on the remote host).
The Finger tool lets you identify and display information about all users on a network host.
This information includes a display of current users on the host (their userids and
usernames). Also displayed for each user are the home directory, login time, idle times,
office location, the last time they received mail, and the last time they read mail. (long format)
A Finger request will also display any information contained in the .plan or the .project file
in the user's home directory. These files are often used as a simple way to distribute information.
You can use the Get HTML utility to help you efficiently debug your Web site.
Get HTML sends a get request to a specified web address (URL) and returns full header
information as well as the page data.
This function gets the current IP address and pertinent information for each adapter.

Wake On LAN
Wake On LAN sends a Magic Packet to remotely wake up a sleeping or powered off PC on a
This is accomplished by sending a specific packet of information, called a Magic Packet
frame, to a node on the network. When a PC capable of receiving the specific frame goes
to sleep, it will enable the Magic Packet mode in the LAN controller, and when the LAN
controller receives a Magic Packet frame, it will alert the system to wake up.
You can use Whois to obtain information on names from the Network Information Center.
Whois provides information about who owns an Internet host or domain and who you can contact
