Scan and monitor your network. With Network Radar.

Network Radar is a powerful network scanning and managing tool that everyone can use. Find out which devices are connected to your network, detect intruders, troubleshoot network issues and get notified upon changes.

All you have to do to use Network Radar is to click the Scan button. No configuration is required. But Network Radar is more than a simple IP scanner. It comes with useful network tools, such as Ping, Portscan, Traceroute and Whois. Furthermore you can send commands to your devices with the click of a button. Use Wake On LAN with every Wake On LAN capable device and shutdown, restart or send other Macs to sleep, even if they are not within your local network.

Once Network Radar has scanned your network, it lists all devices – even those that have been online before you started the first scan. Select a device on the list to see more details, such as IP, IPv6 and MAC address, vendor name, DNS names, mDNS name, NetBIOS name, NetBIOS domain, open ports, response time and more.

Let Network Radar monitor a scan and get live updates on changes in your network. All changes are logged so you always know what happened when. You may also want to receive notifications when a device enters or leaves your network. With the possibility to configure custom rules and actions Network Radar can send yourself a mail as soon as a certain server goes offline or play a sound when a FTP Server appears in your network. The possible configurations are endless.

Organise your hosts in folders. You want all your iPads in one folder? Just create a smart folders and let Network Radar do the work. By binding scans to networks, Network Radar always knows if a devices is reachable or not, making it easy to refresh or monitor a bunch of devices even from different networks.


Network Radar offers many features in a single, elegant interface. Here are just a few of them:

• Scan your network and retrieve detailed information about network devices
• Run useful network tools and commands with the click of a button
• Monitor devices and get notified about changes in your network
• Use the simple rules / actions system for automatic processing of devices

Still the best Network Scanner for MacOS

Feature-rich, and while some releases have had an occasional bug, the developer is very responsive and very quick to resolve issues. I highly recommend this for your networking toolkit, and I personally use it multiple times a week.

There is now a version for iOS as well. For Windows you’ll still have to use Angry IP Scanner instead.

Hi there,

Thanks for the kind review! That keeps us motivated and we are looking forward to making the app even better with updates in the future. :)

Crashes, slow, functions do not work.

Attempting to use this as an IT technician in our small/medium sized environment. Scans are taking up to 45 minutes and that is fine but it crashes consistantly without any crash-report window at all, it just disappears and closes. (update, the developer notified me to say that they were receiving crash reports with data, I was never told this was even happening within the interface at all.) Running on latest release of Catalina and an older High Sierra workstation. I can’t seem to get this application to report vendor name of devices in results, many of the fields that are disabled by default do not work. The performance of this application seems a bit like a step back to the days of Java applications- it’s laggy and resource heavy. Others like lanscan is extremely lightweight, fast, and immediately resolves vendor names.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your feedback. I've got your crash reports. They are being sent in the background without user interaction needed. Network Radar version 2.8 will be released very soon. It will most likely fix the issue that causes the crash as well. If not, please send me a short notice to

Thanks for your patience.
