sipcalc - Advanced console-based ip subnet calculator

Sipcalc is an advanced console-based IP subnet calculator. It can take multiple forms of input (IPv4/IPv6/interface/hostname) and output a multitude of information about a given subnet.

Features include:

IPv4


  • Retrieving of address information from interfaces.

  • Classfull and CIDR output.

  • Multiple address and netmask input and output formats (dotted quad, hex, number of bits).

  • Output of broadcast address, network class, Cisco wildcard, hosts/range, network range.

  • The ability to "split" a network based on a smaller netmask, now also with recursive runs on the generated subnets. (also IPv6)

IPv6


  • Compressed and expanded input and output addresses.

  • Standard IPv6 network output.

  • v4 in v6 output.

  • Reverse DNS address generation.

Robert W. suggests a pair of network administration tools and says:
Ever needed the proper netmask, in Cisco/decimal/whatever notation, at 3.50am, when you can't decide if you need to block 224.0.0.0/4 or /3?

Debian can help, as always, if you know which packages you have to look at.

Another package from Robert tomorrow.

I'm at OSCON this week in Portland, Oregon. Say howdy if you see me or come see me try avoid making a fool of myself at my presentation on Thursday afternoon.

More information on this package can be found on the Debian web site.
