10 Free Tools for Network Administrators

Are you an administrator who wishes to reduce and facilitate your daily workload? If so, this video’s for you: It contains a list of free software tools that will be of tremendous assistance to the typical SMB (small and medium-size business) administrator!

All these are very useful but I personally would love them more in the form of a list (text) to check for reference when I need than in the form of a video because this way I can’t refer to them easily. Thanks anyway! I’d love more howto videos because they show how to do something and this easier to do with a video than with a text tutorial.

Just a suggestion – you could watch the video and create a your own text file.

Glad to see Speccy make the list. The practicality may not be apparent when working with all the stations inside of your office, but when you start looking at laptops, or telecommuting employees, it’s absolutely pivotal. No aspect of the machine’s build is overlooked in the report. Nice resource!
