thank you for any feedback.

the best ever created software is netcat (http://netcat.sourceforge.net).
But you will need to configure (write some scripts for it - or download).
This software mature and feature rich. There is a lot of documentation and scripts available.

I really love SolarWinds network tools

however, there is much more stuff for linux than for windows in this area.

nmap, for example, is *the* tool to discover what are there even if it's firewalled

well, I deleted a lot of lines commenting tools. Fyodor, creator of nmap, have a page with the answer. enjoy:
