    Essential diagnostic software - Suggestions?

    Hi.
    Ive managed to aquire a D510 for my own usage. Seeing as its the first laptop in a while ive seen in a while with a serial port, im thinking of turning it into my diagnostic machine for the network.

    I'll be creating Hyperterminal & IE shortcuts on the desktop for all the printers, switches, APs, Cameras. And installing Wireshark.
    I also plan to have it dual boot Ubuntu as well.

    What other Windows and/or Linux apps should i wack on there?

    Thanks in advance all. .

    Thought of Angry IP Scanner too to add to that.

    The backtrack liveCD is rather good on the security testing front.

    Is there a way for me to create shortcuts on the desktop to change the proxy settings for me? Prehaps with a batch file?

    Just building the laptop now.

    Nessus is a good security/vulnerability scanner. It's recommended by Cisco on their Fundamentals of Network Security module.

    This Nessus software seems good.
    Im not keen on the reports it generates though, as it takes ages to sift through all of it to see what the problems it said in the scan are.
