Seems to have been removed from OSX? I actually use it to test network jack activity a lot :eek:

Mine is still there. Use spotlight search to find it.

Are you talking about the Network tab in Activity Monitor or the Network section of System Preferences? Both of which are there for me.

Spotlight=>Utilities Folder

If you use the app enough, you can do a spotlight search for it, then drag the app from the list to the utilities folder. Since it's a system change, you'll be asked for your password. It's really dumb they've made this so much harder to locate, instead of being in the utilities folder.

best to make sure you're just putting an alias for the app in utilities, not actually moving it from coreservices (not a good idea to modify system files)...

It's a bad idea to move it because the one you're using won't get updated when you do system updates. An alias is the right way to do it.

Fair enough, except now I can't move it back. When I try to move it back to CoreServices, it creates an alias instead to the file in Utilities.

try option-dragging it, that should copy the file. once you're sure it's there, delete the one in utilities, then drag it back from coreservices, and make sure that that's an alias...

Eh, well, now it's in both places and my system won't allow me to remove it from my Utilities folder. "'Network Utility.app” can’t be modified or deleted because it’s required by OS*X.'"

Try the following command in Terminal: sudo rm -rf /Applications/Utilities/Network\ Utility.app

This should permanently delete the duplicate copy from Applications/Utilities.

Yes
If you use the app frequently, you can make an Alias to it, (cmd L in Finder), and drag that to your App or Utilities folder.
