NetSearch is a effective tool for searching files in local area network. The main feature is fast searching. The program is more fast than Windows standard search. Search executes on every computer where the program is installed. Just in a few seconds you can find the file you need in all computers on the LAN.
comment : this is a must for securitypeople because this way you can also search quickly on your network if people are sharing files or if folders are open because they are fill with infected virus files (or worse because they have been hacked). It is also a way to check if default or no passwords are used on shared files in your network. You will be amazed how many shares are by accident open. Only free for today, so grab it. If you want to use it share things wit collagues be sure that you follow the internal guidelines, a good supervisor will have a good eye on what is happening on his network.
search *.* under no or general logon credentials
with the new windows worm going its rounds you can check with the credentials it uses and you can also see that every folder has at least a password on its share. Shares without passwords are so 2002 worms.
