    Maybe I am crazy but-- in Lion there were a nice suite of network tools in the "other" menu as I recall- things like a GUI Ping, trace route, whois &c. I realize these are all still available from CLI-- but today - first time I had need to use them since my upgrade to Mavericks, I looked for them and couldn't find them...... any way to get them back?

    Regards

    It's still there on mine, maybe left over from ML? It's a single app called "Network Utility". It's not in that location though - I found it with Spotlight, but it's in /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications

    Edit: Yep, that's the new location: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5897

    Hi,

    you can make a copy of the app and put it in your Applications folder if you want.

    Or create an alias and put it were you want.

    This is what I do with my network tools :

    Interesting--I assumed it was still in the utilities folder. I used it the other day but through iStat which was still able to find it.
