    Build Status JavaScript Style Guide NPM version

    Sz-IPtools is a set of tools to validate, calculate and manage IP address configuration of a Linux server. It is write to use as a Node.js module. The tools are separate by modules, that can be invoked separately. The modules are:

    • IPCalculator: Some methods to help IP address validation, get address details and calculate netwok information with subnet mask.

      • isIPv4
      • getIpData
      • onSameNetwork
      • convertCidrToNetmask
      • convertNetmaskToCidr
    • ConnTester: Tests TCP connections to remote hosts.

      • test
    • IFaceConfigurator: (Just some methods implemented) Gets network interfaces information. Manages network interfaces and IP address.

      • getInterfaces
      • getAddresses
      • addAddress
      • delAddress
      • getDnsServers
      • getNetworkManagerProcs
      • killNetworkManagerProcs
      • getDhclientProcs
      • killDhclientProcs
    • IPRouter: (Just some methods implemented) Gets routes information. Manages routes, tables and routing rules.

      • getRoutes
      • getTables
      • getDefaultGateway
      • getIpForward
      • setIpForward

    Support

    • Node.js (tested on >= 7.x)
