How to troubleshoot network problems using the Dell Troubleshooting Tool

The following is republished from the Dell Community site:

"The Dell Troubleshooting Tool has long been recognized as a handy ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of network diagnostics. It has a lot of great features that are useful outside of Dell OpenManage Essentials (OME) and can help with some of your daily activities: SNMP, WMI and misc protocol checks, Port check, SMTP email check.

We include it in the latest version of OME, but we’ve had some requests to post it as a separate download. So, If you have OME installed, you already have this tool installed. But if you are not an OME user, give the Dell Troubleshooting Tool a try."

The Dell Troubleshooting Tool is able to test basic connectivity to any TCP or UDP port and can perform a number of other tests. It is available as part of the OpenManage Essentials family of products or as a free standalone download.
