PsNetTools

PsNetTools is a cross platform PowerShell module to test some network features on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Why do I need PsNetTools

On Windows I often use commands like ping, tracert, route, ipconfig and other network-commands like this. When I work on a Mac, most of these tools have output differently than on Windows or they have a different syntax.

Windows Mac Linux
tracert traceroute traceroute
ipconfig ifconfig ifconfig
route print netstat -rn route -n

traceroute on Mac

traceroute sbb.ch
traceroute to sbb.ch (194.150.245.142), 64 hops max, 52 byte packets

ifconfig on Mac

ifconfig

When I use PowerShell, I have the command Test-NetConnection on Windows and Test-Connection on Mac and Linux. Both commands have different parameters and a different output format.

Test-NetConnection on Windows

Test-NetConnection sbb.ch -Port 443

ComputerName     : sbb.ch
RemoteAddress    : 194.150.245.142
RemotePort       : 443
InterfaceAlias   : MyInterfaceAlias
SourceAddress    : 192.x.y.z
TcpTestSucceeded : True

Test-Connection on Mac

Test-Connection sbb.ch -Tcpport 443 -IPv4

True

My goal was to use the same commands on Windows, Mac and Linux and they should have the same output format.

Test-PsNetTping

Test connectivity to an endpoint over the specified Tcp port.
It’s like the cmdlet Test-NetConnection, but with the ability to specify a timeout in ms.

Test-PsNetUping

Test connectivity to an endpoint over the specified Udp port.
It’s like the cmdlet Test-NetConnection, but with the ability to specify a timeout in ms and query for udp.

Test-PsNetUping -Destination <String[]> -UdpPort <Int32[]> [-MinTimeout <Int32>] [-MaxTimeout <Int32>]

Example 1:

Test-PsNetUping -Destination sbb.ch -UdpPort 53

UdpSucceeded      : False
UdpPort           : 53
TimeStamp         : 2019-05-26 09:41:44.322
Destination       : sbb.ch
StatusDescription : "A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period
                    of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond"
MinTimeout        : 0
MaxTimeout        : 1000
TimeMs            : 1000

Example 2:

Test-PsNetUping -Destination sbb.ch,google.com -UdpPort 53 | Format-Table

Succeeded TargetName UdpPort UdpSucceeded Duration MinTimeout MaxTimeout
--------- ---------- ------- ------------ -------- ---------- ----------
     True sbb.ch          53        False 1022ms   0ms        1000ms
     True google.com      53        False 1020ms   0ms        1000ms

Example 3:

Test-PsNetUping -Destination sbb.ch,google.com -UdpPort 53,139 | Format-Table

Succeeded TargetName UdpPort UdpSucceeded Duration MinTimeout MaxTimeout
--------- ---------- ------- ------------ -------- ---------- ----------
     True sbb.ch          53        False 1160ms   0ms        1000ms
     True sbb.ch         139        False 1016ms   0ms        1000ms
     True google.com      53        False 1104ms   0ms        1000ms
     True google.com     139        False 1025ms   0ms        1000ms

Test-PsNetWping

It’s like the cmdlet Invoke-WebRequest, but with the ability to specify ‘noproxy’ with PowerShell 5.1.

Test-PsNetWping [-Destination] <String[]> [[-MinTimeout] <Int32>] [[-MaxTimeout] <Int32>] [-NoProxy]

Example 1:

Test-PsNetWping -Destination 'https://sbb.ch'

HttpSucceeded     : True
ResponsedUrl      : https://www.sbb.ch/de/
NoProxy           : False
TimeStamp         : 2019-05-26 09:43:20.599
Destination       : https://sbb.ch
StatusDescription : OK
MinTimeout        : 0
MaxTimeout        : 1000
TimeMs            : 331

Example 2:

Test-PsNetWping -Destination https://sbb.ch, google.com | Format-Table

HttpSucceeded ResponsedUrl           NoProxy Destination       StatusDescription MinTimeout MaxTimeout TimeMs

Example 3:

Test-PsNetWping -Destination 'https://sbb.ch', 'https://google.com' -MaxTimeout 1000 -NoProxy | Format-Table

HttpSucceeded ResponsedUrl            NoProxy Destination        StatusDescription MinTimeout MaxTimeout TimeMs

How to Export settings

You can easy export all the output of the commands as a JSON-file with the following CmdLets:

As an example run Test-PsNetDig:

Test-PsNetDig sbb.ch

Succeeded   : True
InputString : sbb.ch
Destination : sbb.ch
IpV4Address : 194.150.245.142
IpV6Address : 2a00:4bc0:ffff:ffff::c296:f58e
TimeMs      : 47

Convert the result from Test-PsNetDig to a JSON-Object:

Test-PsNetDig sbb.ch | ConvertTo-Json

{
  "Succeeded": true,
  "InputString": "sbb.ch",
  "Destination": "sbb.ch",
  "IpV4Address": {
    "AddressFamily": 2,
    "ScopeId": null,
    "IsIPv6Multicast": false,
    "IsIPv6LinkLocal": false,
    "IsIPv6SiteLocal": false,
    "IsIPv6Teredo": false,
    "IsIPv4MappedToIPv6": false,
    "Address": 2398459586
  },
  "IpV6Address": {
    "AddressFamily": 23,
    "ScopeId": 0,
    "IsIPv6Multicast": false,
    "IsIPv6LinkLocal": false,
    "IsIPv6SiteLocal": false,
    "IsIPv6Teredo": false,
    "IsIPv4MappedToIPv6": false,
    "Address": null
  },
  "TimeMs": 4
}

Export the JSON-Object from Test-PsNetDig to a file:

Test-PsNetDig sbb.ch | ConvertTo-Json | Set-Content D:\PsNetDig.json
