IP Scanner Pro 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, WOL and Port Scan tools
•Local network segments are scanned automatically; custom ranges may be added manually

The Best

It’s not perfect, and it’s much more expensive, but it’s the best by far. I *wasted* a few dollars here, a few dollars there, trying others. Just save your time and money and get this one from the start. I only wish it knew more specifically what type of devices are associated with certain MAC addresses, particularly Apple devices.

Crashes frequently on large/diverse networks

I have a home/business network of over 120 devices. Wirh a PRO app, I would expect more robustness from such a tool but I find that this tool crashes on a regular basis whenever the network "changes". By that I mean, whenever an assigned IP addr has changed. For example, device with a duplicate IP address will come on the network and after discovering this (which is why you use such a tool as this in the first place) the scanner will crash either when the device is reassigned or taken off line. In other words, the reliability of this tool has gotten worse and worse with each new "update". It is time to finde a new one.

It’s Good for a GUI Scanner

It’s not terrible, and its not Great. It’s good. For me it’s quicker than writing a bash/Terminal script. You can create ranges to scan and save them, along with port scanning. You can initiate a HTTP/VNC etc.. connection from the application which is nice. my only gripes are that it can be combersome to navigate the menus. It’s difficult to disable multiple nic scanning. Example; I have have several nics and I can’t disable the scanning of those subnets.. Other than that its pretty good.
