These Android apps, from network sniffers to SNMP MIB browsers to SSH tools, will come in handy for network and IT pros

SSH Tunnel

When you don’t have an SSL-VPN or IPSec VPN already set up, SSH tunnels will do the job -- and they just plain work. SSH Tunnel absolutely requires root access, but allows you to tunnel just about any app through the SSH tunnel to your destination, e.g. a Linux machine at work. You could point your app at 127.0.0.1 port 12000 and pop out from the Linux box to hit your IIS-based WebDAV server at 10.51.0.200 on port 80, for example. If this sounded Greek to you, just search “how to ssh tunnels” on Google. It’s a bit convoluted, but it's worth learning.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
