Default [WP7] Network Suite

Here's the official description of Network Suite on the marketplace:
ARKconcepts Network Suite is a tool to help you with various networking needs. It provides the following features:

* Ping
* TCP connect
* HTTP connect
* Current DNS lookup (uses domainís own DNS server)
* DNS lookup using custom server
* Reverse DNS lookup
* WHOIS information lookup

Most of those actions are done using a remote server since WP7 does not yet support them natively. The HTTP connection, however, is done locally and allows you to connect to internal machines if you are on Wi-Fi.
Like with most of my apps, I created this one because I needed it and there was nothing good enough out there.

I'm looking forward to MIX11, where Microsoft will hopefully announce proper socket support so that Network Suite could be fully functional without relying on a server that I have to pay for

That said, I still have a plan to allow for LAN network analysis even without good support for sockets from Microsoft. It would just be more complex to implement.

Here's the Zune-launching link for the app.
Phones: Nokia 6800 Typhoon (SMT5600) ► Hermes (TyTN) ► Raphael (Fuze) ► Samsung Focus Flash + Lumia 710
Tablets: B&N NOOKcolor
