Happy Monday Community,

 

I am building the list of the most popular IT Pro tools, and have a question to you about tools you are using in your daily life. 

What’s your go-to? Why is it your go-to?

 

It could be anything - from Draw.io to Chocolatey and Keepass.

  • Draw.io is an essential tool for me now, I use it for all diagrams thanks to the Veeam stencils built in.
  • ShareX is handy for screen recording & screenshots, has handy tools like defining “regions” and then quickly recapturing these and automatically saving them off into folders. Enables me to work on a particular task, grabbing screenshots quickly, and then annotate them in a batch afterwards.
  • Notepad++ is an extremely powerful text editor, handy for when I’m trying to amend chunks of text into something usable for automation in particular.

But those are my top three generic IT tools I use :grinning:

I’m just in love about this thread, but first thanks @MicoolPaul and @Kseniya, draw.io is new for me!

For me, top five are:

  • Advanced IP Scanner: fast and reliable lan scanner;
  • NMAP: again, network discovery and enumeration;
  • No-script: on a Firefox browser let me navigate with near to zero worries (the more you use, the better experience you got);
  • Shodan.io: search engine for internet connected device;
  • Sysinternal Suite: hey, needs no presentation, right?

Hi there, one tool that I use a lot is bitvise ssh client

https://www.bitvise.com/ssh-client

it combines ssh client and winscp client,

very easy to use, you can save the sessions, etc.

I use it as an alternative of putty + winscp, also two awesome tools!

Remote Desktop Manager from Devolutions. Great tool which has nearly all types of connections (for example HPE iLO, SSH, HTTP, RDP, VNC, and many more) and you can use a MS SQL or MySQL server database as a data source for the connections. This way, the entire team has access to the same connections.

Sounds good! But do not save Hardened Repository Credentials there :joy:

Of course not, that one needs very special treatment. :wink:
