    Not sure what the logic here is. But Apple removed Network Utility.:eek:
    I noticed right away, since I had a shortcut pinned to the menu bar in Finder. It is now question mark. Went to the Utilities folder in Applications and confirmed it is gone.
    This sucks, I can get a lot of what it does accomplished from Terminal except port scan. But Network Utility was so easy to use and nice.

    Spotlight is your friend.

    /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications has Network Utility

    Thanks, not sure why they moved it there.
    Not exactly intuitive?
    Well at least I still have my old friend. Though it is more steps to get to it.

    Didn't even try searching for it. Since it was gone from the utilities folder I just assumed Apple had axed it entirely.

    The way they moved the link to the application is frustrating, but as you said, it is nice that it is still there!

    I had to search for it as well. Not sure why, but it is a utility I use quite often!

    Well I am an IT admin at a TV station. We are in the midst of a year long upgrade of everything. I use this daily.
    I pretty much soiled my drawers when I couldnt find it.
    I'll just keep it in the dock, looks like we can't pin to the toolbar.
