LanScan is a free, simple and efficient IPv4 network scanner that discovers all active devices on any subnet: the local one, or any public subnet that you configure.
-> Auto-detection of configured interfaces: Airport, Ethernet, Virtual interfaces ...
-> Scan the IP range you like, from 1 IP to the whole IPv4 address space!
-> Scan your local network with ARP packets
-> Scan public IP network ranges with Ping / SMB / mDNS packets
-> Display the IP address, MAC address, hostname (4 max) and vendor associated
-> Discover the SMB domain if any configured
-> Hostname resolution: DNS, mDNS (Apple devices) and SMB (Windows devices)
-> Custom hostname edition
-> Custom comment for each device
-> Export results in CSV files
-> Hide/show each column
-> Align each column as you want
-> No limitation on the number of devices found !
Comparison with the LanScan Pro edition:
-> Only 4 hostnames are fully displayed - You'll see the first 3 chars of the others
Since v4, it's preferred to buy the In-App purchase in LanScan Free edition than buying the LanScan Pro application.

One click Success
This is a utility I have been looking for since doubling up OS with Linux (Angry IP Scanner). LanScan does the job very well and clearly. One-Click is all it needs to show all connected devices on the local network.
A worthy upgrade from LanScan Pro v5
I’ve been a LanScan Pro user for several years now. I reviewed v3 with 4 stars and noted that it would be perfect with the addition of port scanning. LanScan v6 brings port scanning to the game and its implementation is nicely done. You can select one or more hosts, open the details tab, configure your scan and — BOOM — see all the ports open on the selected hosts.
I am absolutely delighted. This brings a much wanted feature to LanScan that is far more useful in real life than the port scanning feature in Network Utility. I’ve been a happy LanScan Pro user for years. I’m going to be even happier with LanScan as of v6. This is an essential tool in any IT engineer’s toolbox.
