Category Icon  Test Tools for DynSite

All the programs on this page were especially developed to test some features before their integration in DynSite. For this reason they must be considered as experimental, some won't do anything useful for you, some others may not work at all. Don't expect anything fancy either, they were just designed for test purpose.

Some of the tested features are already included in the latest version available here, some others are still in test.

  • All the programs available from this website are designed for the Microsoft Windows operating system, they won't work on any other platforms (e.g. Mac OS, Linux, etc.) They are compatible with Windows 7 SP1 and later (unless noted otherwise).
  • If you want to buy the full version of any program available here, just click the Buy link above the related Download button or click the program name under the Buy drop-down menu and you'll be redirected to the order form on the vendor's website. Orders and deliveries are handled by MyCommerce (a Digital River company).
  • A registration is required for daily or professional uses; it would also be much appreciated to possibly get technical support.
  • All the programs on this website are trial versions only (but freeware and donationware), please never install a trial version over a full version even if it is more recent otherwise you will loose the full version; the full versions are only available from the vendor's website.

To top Dynamic Update Tester

Dynamic Update Tester icon

Dynamic Update Tester (DynUp) is an application to test dynamic updates (RFC2136).

Updates are sent to a compatible DNS server on port 53 (default), not to a dynamic DNS services.

Note: this is a test application, not an automatic IP updater.

The latest builds include the implementation of HMAC-MD5 (RFC2845) and GSS (RFC3645) transaction signatures (TSIG) for secure dynamic updates. GSS with SPNEGO/Kerberos v5 is supported.

The host names are optional. You may enter many and separate them with either a blank, a comma or a semi-colon. An A record must exist for every host name to update. Do not include the zone name.

The Update Zone option allows the update of the A record of the root.

This version was successfully tested on ISC Bind 9.2.4r4 and Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition.

To top Router Tester

Router Tester icon Router Tester (RTest) is an application to help DynSite users to accurately identify the path to the HTML status page of their routers. If your router does not appear in the list of supported routers in DynSite and the program figures out the path to its status page, please send me the brand, the model and the path to the status page of yours by e-mail and I will add it to the next update. Please read the included readme.txt file for instructions.

To top Universal Plug-and-Play Tester

Universal Plug-and-Play Tester icon

Universal Plug-and-Play Tester (UPnPTest) is an experimental tool that lists all the available devices compatible with the Universal Plug-and-Play protocol including routers (IGDs).

When the program starts it first checks the configuration of the required UPnP services and the Windows Firewall and possibly configure them for you (after being prompted). Then it searches for available devices and updates the list as devices are plugged or unplugged.

The status window displays miscellaneous notifications and the IP addresses of the routers as they are assigned.

You can also select a device or a service from the list and click Properties... to get some information about it or to query a service using the available actions.


  • You may have to install the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 (x86 and x64) for the UPnP Tester to run on your system.
  • In Properties, double-click any URL to open it in your default browser.
  • You may have to enable Universal Plug-and-Play in your router configuration screen before your router shows in the list.

To top SNMP Tester

SNMP Tester icon

SNMP Tester (SnmpTest) is a tool that queries and monitors SNMP-compatible devices but it is especially designed to test SNMP router compatibility.

The first part of the test queries the system name and system description strings, the forwarding flag and enumerates all the exposed interfaces.

The 2nd part of the test monitors SNMP traps from the device (your system must be configured to receive traps from the device). While the monitoring is running, trigger some events e.g. connection and disconnection of the Internet line and see if these events are reported in the application.

To top Routing and RAS Connection Monitor

Routing and RAS Connection Monitor icon RRAS Connection Monitor (RRasMon) is an experimental tool that monitors Routing and Remote Access Service connections (on Windows Servers only). If a connection in the list is active, RRasMon displays its IP address, if it is offline, it simply displays Disconnected. You can also select a connection is the list and click the Connect or Disconnect buttons to force connection or disconnection. This is still under investigation and debugging. If you have such a configuration please send me an e-mail and I will provide a test version of DynSite which integrates this feature.

To top Connection Enumerator

Connection Enumerator icon

Connection Enumerator is a small program that lists all available LAN and RAS (dial-up) connections. The program also shows if LAN and RAS connection monitoring is natively supported by the system. This tool is also used to figure out the name of dynamically-created RAS connectoid (e.g. the ones used by some proprietary services.)

To top AOL Monitor

AOL Monitor icon

AOL Monitor (AOLMon) is a small program that monitors dial-up connections to the America Online Internet service (requires version 6 or later).

This test was required because as opposed to most dial-up services, AOL still uses a specific procedure.

If the AOL software is installed, the program should display messages when the connection is established and when it is interrupted.

Manual connections and disconnections from the program are not available at this time since AOL told me they do not wish to communicate about this. But if they change their mind, they are welcome to contact me here.
