My latest rebuild of this addon includes a Quick Launch shortcut (cos I use it a lot) and the dll file hs_regex.dll in the program folder, in case you don't already have it installed on your system.

Sam Spade for Windows
Sam Spade for Windows is a freeware network query tool. Each tool displays it's output in it's own window, and everything is multi-threaded so you don't need to wait for one query to complete before starting the next one. Some functions are threaded still further to allow lazy reverse DNS lookups (never do a traceroute -n again). The output from each query is hotlinked, so you can right click on an email address, IP address, hostname or internic tag to run another query on it. Appending the results of a query to the log window is a single button function. There's a lot of online help, in both WinHelp and HTMLHelp formats. This includes tutorials, background information and links to online resources as well as the program manual itself.
* Ping: ping a network host to see if it's alive, and to see how long it takes packets to get there and back
* NSlookup: Find the IP address from a hostname, or vice-versa
* Whois: Ask a whois server who owns a domain name. Sam Spade will usually ask the right whois server automatically, or you can query a particular server. Whois queries for .com/.net/.org addresses are directed to the correct registrar automatically.
* IP Block Whois: Ask a whois server who owns a block of IP addresses
* Dig: A more advanced DNS query tool. Dig asks a DNS server for all the information it has about a host
* Traceroute: Find the route packets take between you and a remote system. Both a slow, step-by-step mode and a fast parallel query mode are available.
* Finger: Lookup user information on a remote unix system
* SMTP VRFY: Ask a mail-server whether an email address is real and whether it's being forwarded to other addresses. Also attempt partial delivery to a range of addresses to discover whether a given address is valid or not.
* Keep-Alive: Sends http packets to your ISPs webserver every minute or so, to keep a dialup link active
* DNS Zone Transfer: This asks a DNS server for all the information it has about a domain. It automatically finds the authoritative servers for a domain and will query one or all of them.
* SMTP Relay Check: This checks whether a mailserver is secure. It attempts to send email back to yourself via somebody elses email server (one which you're not supposed to have access to). Hopefully it'll fail, but if it doesn't the mailserver is open to all sorts of abuse and the administrator needs to secure it
* Usenet Cancel Check: This asks your local news-server to look for cancelled messages in a set of groups
* Website Download: This will copy a website to disk.
* Website Search: This searches a website for anything matching a list of patterns
* Email Header Analysis: This will check the Received lines in an email header for consistency. It can help in tracking down the true source of forged email
* Blacklist Lookups: This will check the Realtime Blackhole List, Dialup User List and Relayed Spam Source List to see if any of a hosts addresses are listed
* Abuse.net Query: This will identify the email address responsible for abuse issues at a given domain using the database maintained by abuse.net
* S-Lang Scripting: Many features can be configured and scripted using the embedded S-Lang scripting language.
* Time: Query a remote host to see what time it thinks it is, via a range of protocols including SNTP. Optionally set the local systems time via SNTP at each application startup.
