You can add new tools to the Tools menu by editing the Tools.Menu file. This file and other customizable files are located in the IP-Network-Browser directory in the SolarWinds Toolset installation directory.

The Tools.Menu file is a text file and can be edited in Notepad. The default Tools.Menu file is listed below.

## Tools Menu for IP Network Browser#### Macros that can be used with any command are:## ${IP} IP address of the node# ${Target} Node Name# ${SysObjectID} Unique System OID for the node# ${Community} SNMP community string for the node##&Telnet ... : telnet.exe ${IP}Trace&Route ... : traceroute.exe ${IP}

To change the Telnet command:
