Solarwinds' ipMonitor Evaluation

I was not sponsored by SolarWinds to look at this. I received the e-mail and went 'Hey, a free tool!'. You can skip the email and go right over here ! Remember - Your domain (if you're a single person using this) is more than likely COMPUTERNAME\LoginName . It's how you log in on the (local) web portal. Scan your network within an IP range. If you leave the settings as they are, chances are you're scanning for about 75k IP addresses - and SolarWinds will let you know! Welcome to the dashboard: (I can show you the IP addresses because they're local to my network and not public for internet consumption!) There's a very early 2000s feel which I kind of adore.

I had a small thread about this on Twitter, a blog post is a lot better to get the information out in a clear way. Have you ever used , came across a group of people who match Your Dream Company, Dream Location, and do your Dream Job on LinkedIn...and they're not active? What was the POINT, am I right?  A place for professionals to network, but they're not active ...because they have a job to do! You want to be like that! Unfortunately, in this day and age, unless you have a 'relationship' with someone, they're not going to help you.   Hm.  (Note: 'relationship' is different than relationship ).
