You'll find familiar ones, such as ping, Whois, traceroute, and a time server, as well as ones you may not commonly use, such as a tool that will verify servers and locations for email addresses. There's finger, of course, which displays information about a user logged into a specific server. Lookup will let you perform DNS queries. You can even get quotes from Internet quote servers with the Quote utility. And also useful is a utility that shows the HTML header code and page data for any Web page.
