Admin tool: Angry IP Scanner
Nominated by: Graham Gillies

My favorite tool isn't some fancy complex megabucks application, but a small, fast, very useful tool that I absolutely have to have now that I've been using it for a while. The Angry IP Scanner is a standalone executable that lets you scan your network for IP addresses and shows the results. You can then right-click on any of the IP addresses and you get a menu of choices that includes Telnet, open using browser, open using Explorer, FTP, ping, trace route, GeoLocate and it also lets you choose another custom method.

It is great for quick network maintenance and finding which addresses are free for the IT staff to use.
