The first thing TCP Problem Finder will do is to deduce the configuration. This can tell you what devices are active on the network you are working on, the IP address of the router, or if you are on a VLAN. It can also tell you what kind of devices they are. When you are diagnosing a problem, it helps to know if the device having problems is a desktop, a phone, a printer, even a TV.
SSL Problem Finder will allow you to decode the traces for SSL or AT-TLS traffic. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is widely implemented to protect TCP application traffic. SSL Problem Finder will help you diagnose problems with connection setup and negotiation. You can view problems with certificates, encryption algorithms and much more.
IPv6 Problem Finder will allow you to decode the traces for IPv6 traffic. IPv6 will be the protocol for the coming years of the Internet. IPv6 is much more than just a bigger address.Just a few of the differences between IPv4 and IPv6 are:
- ARP has been replaced by Neighbor Discovery
- There are many more address types, and
- Each interface can have multiple addresses
The first thing IPv6 Problem Finder will do is to detect IPv4 and IPv6 protocols in the trace.
DNS Problem Finder
Domain Name System (DNS) is critical to the functioning of networks. Slowdowns in DNS can cause unforeseen slowdowns in application traffic. DNS Problem Finder allows you to see errors and response times for unicast and multicast DNS. Analysis of both IPv4 and IPv6 DNS queries is supported.
