WFetch

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This simple but powerful testing tool is a must-have for any system administrator or Web site manager. Wfetch's simple GUI offers easy input and clear output to test almost any Web host. Don't expect a manual or clear failure information. This tool was released for expert users.

Operating Wfetch is actually very simple, providing you understand Web functions such as Get, Put, Head, Trace, Post, and others. It's a mere matter of using a few pull-downs, entering some simple text and pressing Go. The trick comes when users must interpret the Log Output from their commands. If Get HTTP/1.1\r\n makes sense, this app was written for you. The utility offers numerous authentication and connection features. Additional commands make it easy to copy and paste text from the output log file.

Wfetch is not secure as it stores user names and passwords in plain text. Nevertheless, it is an invaluable freeware tool for any user looking to diagnosis certain connection problems.
