iNet - explore your network!
Find out about security risks and keep your network under control. This easy to use App outlines a computer network even to the unexperienced user. Is somebody using your network without your knowledge? Which devices are currently online? Which access ports are open? Which services are offered? What is the IP of your router? Wake sleeping devices remotely. Add own icons to found devices ...

iNet provides you with information about networks and devices your Mac is connected to. Its very easy and user friendly design even allows the unexperienced user to get a profound and understandable overview of a network, the running services and the Wi-Fi quality.

In the current version the following functions are available:

• Network Scanner
• Bonjour Browser
• Portscan for standard ports
• Airport Monitor*
• Wake on Lan
• Help section

We did our best to develop a solution that makes network observing as simple as possible. Wether you are a network expert or a common user - iNet provides the information you need to find out what's going on in your network.

Network Scanner:

• See all devices that are online and connected to a network, along with vendor, IP and MAC addresses
• Assign your own names and icons or choose from the provided icons for easier identifying a device in the scan list. Most Mac devices are displayed with their original icon.
• Set scan range and interface to scan
• Export scan results in csv format
• Connect to devices via different protocols

Bonjour Monitor:

• Detect all running Bonjour services realtime
• Detect running services on a discrete device
• Detailed information about a service
• Choose the active Bonjour domain for observing

*Airport Monitor:

* • Attention for users of the latest 2013 Airport edition with 802.11ac: Because SNMP support has been disabled iNet cannot retrieve the usage statistics and wifi strength any more with these models. All other features of iNet are working properly. The following Airport monitoring features can only be used with models prior to the 802.11ac:
• See the current condition of Apple Airport base stations like Airport express or Time Capsule
• Monitor network traffic on Airport devices
• Find detailed information about your Airport base stations like MAC address, IP's, used channels and so on
• See the connection quality of the connected wifi clients in realtime

Wake on Lan:

• Wake devices remotely in your local network or via internet
• Put devices remotely to sleep, shutdown or restart (Macintosh only)
• Add devices to favorites
• Send commands via ssh to devices
• Minimal system required for WOL: OS X 10.7


• Extensive help section
• Dictionary of used terms

We will add modules in the future like traceroute and more. iNet is also available for iPhone and for iPad.

Winderful, useful, easy-to-use Network App

Simple to use and gives lots of information to help troubleshoot Network or peripheral issues.
I like that you can assign various icons which help me identify a connection fast, like my two Printers or the Wireless Webcams, each with their own classy icon.
I’ve used iNet for years now, at work as well as at home, and wouldn’t want to go without it.


Huge help in managing a LAN, seeing what all those devices are, etc.

This is reliable and very useful. I have ben using it and the iOS verson for years.

It is great to be able to print a list to PDF of the devices on the LAN.

I do wish they would add the ability to include in the printout the devices that are greyed out because they were recently on, but are not on now.


Incredibly Useful

Love this app. I use it all the time to double-check IP addresses of devices on my home network and to see what new devices are there. I also use it for trouble-shooting. It’s kept up-to-date as well.
