Linux Tips: Nutty
The collection elementary-apps is a source of third-party software developed for the Linux distribution elementary OS. There are some interesting applications in this. One of these is Nutty, a program that brings together all kinds of tasks for network diagnosis. To install Ubuntu-based Linux distributions, first add the appropriate PPAs:
sudo apt add-repository ppa: elementary-os / stable
sudo apt add-repository ppa: bablu-boy / nutty.0.1
Then update the package sources and install Nutty:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nutty
Nutty consists of five tabs. The first tab shows information about your system. If you select a network interface, you will see relevant information such as MAC address, IP address and signal strength. If you enable View Details, you will see even more low-level information, for example about the driver and firmware.
In the Usage tab you get to see how much data your applications are uploading and downloading. In the Speed tab you perform a speed test on your internet connection and a traceroute to a random computer. In the Ports tab you can see the status of all active ports. And when you open the Devices tab, Nutty scans all IP addresses on your network.
