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.

Still waitng

I have been using IP Scanner for a number of years, having bought a license a long time ago. I have a large home network, beyond the limits of free and home versions, but am not using commercially. I hve been trying to get the developer to respond via support emails (since the support portal will not not take my requests with multiple attempts with different browsers, all ending in difficlut to read fatal errors) to get an updated license for pro to use the new app since I lost functionality with the new OS version. The support site indicates they will do that I am still waiting after more than 10 days even for an acknowledgement of the requests. It was a good program when I could use it. Dissappointed now.

Nice app. not worth it.

I would consider buying it for much less than the asking price. Sorry, but I immediately went to Angry IP Scanner. It shows me all the connected devices on my LAN, the MAC addresses, and even web detection FOR FREE.

Worthless because...

I was hoping to try this app and perhaps chose to upgrade it if worthwhile but it won't scan the various subnets on my home arrangement except for the one I'm currently connected to. So it does not even detect these other subnets let along the devices on them. Oh, yeah, limit "first 8" devices" on the standard version. This must have been a proof of concept released to the app store. Complete waste of space and time. I hope I saved you some.
