* Internet Helper is a useful application that is basically a suite of internet tools. It has the basic port scans, service scans, and fingers. But Internet Helper also has many more advanced features, such as a finger file-on-demand system for distributing text files and an advanced client/server pair to test programs or interface with other systems.
A 68K or PPC Macintosh running system 7.5 or later with at least 7 megabytes of RAM.
* Client/Server pair:
Internet Helper has a client/server pair to test internet applications, play with protocols, and connect to wingates and SMTP servers. The client/server setup also allows client/server chatting.
* Service Scan:
This feature lets you scan for various open ports on a server or internet-connected
* Port Scan:
This feature lets you scan for a certain port number among many IP addresses.
* Finger and Finger File-On-Demand:
This useful new feature lets you turn your computer into a file server. Users
anywhere in the world can finger your computer with a keyword to receive files and
information. As far as I know, this is the first Mac finger file server anywhere.
