IP Scanner for Macintosh scans your local area network to determine the identity of all machines and internet devices on the LAN. Powerful results, yet easy and intuitive to use.

IP Scanner is all about customizing the way you view your network. You may apply custom names and icons to the devices on your network and adjust the type and amount of information you see in the network overview; don't need to see the MAC address column...don't display it! Text too small...make it larger!

IP Scanner can be used in several primary modes: as a way to get a quick overview of which devices are currently on the network, including seeing which devices are actively and passively present, or view network changes over time with IP Scanner's 'cumulative mode', including options to display devices which were once present but now no longer visible.

Finally, by using the whitelist feature you may filter out known and trusted devices to reveal new or unexpected ones, a great way to easily identify unwanted network visitors.

Other notable features:

•Sort network list by device name, IP address, MAC address or Last Seen
•Growl support for notifications of newly discovered devices and changes in device state
•Right-click a device to obtain additional contextualized tool options, including Ping and Port Scan tools
•Local network segments are scanned automatically; custom ranges may be added manually

IP Scanner is free to use on small networks (up to 7 devices). To see the results from networks of more than 7 devices, please consider the Home or Pro versions of IP Scanner.

Looks like the pro version is good, but this is worthless

I like the info that it returns, but only for 8 out of 32 devices.
So, to me it’s useless. And there is no way I’m paying $62 for an IP scanner that for windows is usually free.
I found a few other free ones with good reviews. This one is was a waste of my time.

Using this app generates a connection attempt from a finnish server.

I launched this app while using the Network Monitor “Little Snitch” and took care to forbid it ALL access to the Internet.
Even though, Little Snitch caught it immediately receiving an incoming connection from the IP address which is a Finnish server.

This weirdly intrusive behaviour is highly suspicious and is of course not documented anywhere.

Knowing this I cannot possibly recommend the app for anyone unless they are fine with their machine being surreptisiously accessed from the outside.
It does not matter whether the app does its other jobs correctly as long as it maintains this deceiving practice.

Useless - Only displays 6 devices

This is just a teaser for the pro version. Useless you can see your entire network - how do I even know that the pro version will be able to detect all of my devices properly if you limit it to showing me six?
