Fing Review

Tina de Pierre
A tool for discovering networks and services
A review of Fing by Tina de Pierre

Fing is a network scanner with two main features, those being the detection of TCP services running on a network system and general network scanning.

The program runs as a command-line application and provides you with a variety of details after answer a series of questions. It supports ping, traceroute, domain lookup and can Wake-On-LAN.

In all, Fing is a program which doesn't really offer that much in terms of flexibility but does provide an easy interface to a few common networking tools and works fine as a network scanner. Unfortunately, Fing is a program which lacks a graphical user interface making it only useful for those who have a grasp of how to actually use CMD.

Fing features and highlights:
  • Ping: measure the round-trip time for packets sent by Fing to a destination host.
  • Traceroute: identify the hops, i.e. hosts crossed to reach the destination.
  • Domain Lookup: translate a domain name like into IP address, and vice versa.
  • Wake On LAN: wake up devices that may be switched on from the network.
