Used to download files from server`s


To check and break the target`s Internet


To get more details about the Target Domain by DNS query.


Similar to DIG


Checking for the domain registration and more details


Provides a secure encrypted connection between two hosts over an insecure network.


When you need to copy files while SSHing

Manipulates or displays the kernel’s IPv4 network neighbor cache. It can add entries to the table, delete one, or display the current content.


Powerful python tool that allows you to capture ongoing and outgoing HTTP or HTTPS data from a specific application or from all apps on the device.


Linux command-line tool that is used to scan IP addresses and ports in a network and to detect installed applications. Nmap allows network admins to find which devices are running on their network, discover open ports and services, and detect vulnerabilities.


Similar to NMAP works in Windows


WireGuard uses modern cryptography and network code to create an encrypted tunnel between two devices. Using some clever strategies, it even works when the client device’s IP address changes.


Reads and writes data across network connections, using the TCP or UDP protocols. It is one of the most powerful tools in the network and system administrators' arsenal, and it is considered a Swiss army knife of networking tools.


Used to create a remote connection with a system over a TCP/IP network. It allows us to administrate other systems by the terminal. We can run a program to conduct administration.


Connects a computer system to a remote server using the FTP protocol. Once connected, it also lets users transfer files between the local machine and the remote system, and manage files and directories on the remote system.


Prints network connections, routing tables, interface statistics, masquerade connections, and multicast memberships. Netstat can be used to diagnose network issues and service problems.


Hping performs an ICMP ping scan by specifying the argument -1 on the command line.


Prints the route that a packet takes to reach the host. This command is useful when you want to know about the route and about all the hops that a packet takes.
