AG Group Releases AGNetTools 2.5!
WALNUT CREEK, California - April 4, 2000
AG Group, Inc. announces the release of a new, expanded version of
AGNetTools, their popular cross-platform shareware suite of IP diagnostic
tools. Version 2.5 represents a significant upgrade to the suite, currently

shipping in November of 1998, making it an extremely pervasive and
recognized toolset. Its wide appeal is due, in large part, to its straight
forward, graphical user interface, which sets it apart from similar
freeware, shareware and commercial products

of security. With AGNetTools, we can give them a system security profile
along with recommendations for shoring up potential holes, if necessary,"

this day and age of half-baked applications, is very useful and well
