a simple, handy network addressing multitool with plenty of features



  • Show all network interfaces
  • Show all active network interfaces
  • Show the driver used of each active network interface
  • Show the gateway of each online interface
  • Show the addresses of each active network interface with or without CIDR notation
    • IPv4
    • IPv6 (if possible)
    • MAC
  • Show the vendor name of MAC address/es (needs internet connection)
  • Show the public/external IP/s
    • of current user
    • of website/s or domain/s
  • Show active hosts on current network with or without MAC address
  • Show all valid addresses (IPv4, IPv6, MAC) extracted
    • from file or multiple files at once
    • from website or multiple websites at once
  • Show the route to a network host using three most common tools. ship checks which are installed and decides to run the fastest one for each case scenario
    • IPv4
    • IPv6 (if possible)
  • Show the broadcast and network address, cisco wildcard mask, class and host range by giving the IP address and CIDR or netmask
    • IPv4
    • optionally suppress the bitwise output
    • display results as HTML
    • split into networks of size n1, n2, n3 :construction:
    • deaggregate address range :construction:
  • Show a list of common ports with description, private and reserved IPv4 and IPv6 addresses with or without CIDR notation
  • Configuration FLAGS to change behavior, color theme and verbosity
    • COLOR: choose a color theme from 1 to 4
    • SILENT: choose 1 to skip checking, warning and error messages (not critical, useful on scripting)
    • NOCHECK: choose 1 to skip validation and checking functions (faster, expects well-formatted inputs)
    • DEBUG: choose 1 to enter debugging mode a.k.a. trace mode
  • Multiple flags can also be used
    • e.g. COLOR=3 SILENT=1 NOCHECK=1 bash ship.sh -h
  • Compatible with almost any linux distribution
  • Drag and drop URLs or file paths on console window
  • Cleaning temp files and handling remaining tasks on exit
  • Exiting on long running tasks needs confirmation
