iNet Pro - Network Scanner
By BananaGlue GmbH
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
iNet - explore your network!
Find out about security risks and keep your network under control. Which devices are connected to my network? Are they online? Which services do they provide? Does somebody use my wifi network without my knowledge? These and other questions answers iNet fast and simple.
With iNet you know exactly what's going on! This easy to use App outlines a computer network even to the unexperienced user.
iNet provides you with information about networks your iPhone or iPod touch 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 and the running services.
In the current release of iNet we implemented the following features:
• Network scan
• Bonjour browser
• Device info
• Wake on Lan
• Sleep on Lan (Macintosh only)
• Extensive help section
• Send scan results via email
iNet shows the devices connected to your local network, e. g. a computer or router, along with their name, IP and vendor. iNet discovers and distinguishes between windows and macintosh computers with different icons. For most Apple Computers the particular computer model can be seen. Find out the name, vendor and IP of the connected devices as well as the number of running Bonjour services on that particular device. A classic portscan on the choosen device can also be performed.
The technology used in iNet scans on a very low level, therefore one can even find machines that don't want to be found, for instance a Mac OS X computer running in stealth mode.
Ping is a computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network or not. The ping section in iNet enables you to find out if an IP exists (if its ping service is enabled; otherwise you will get no response :-)). For your convenience we added a bookmark function to store often needed addresses.
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. The Bonjour-Browser in iNet scans the connected local network for Bonjour services, detecting any hardware that ist connected via the Bonjour protocol (for instance computer, router, printer, …) and any software running Bonjour services, e. g. iTunes or Filemaker.
Wake on lan:
The outstanding feature of our implementation is that it is very easy to use and simple to setup. For more information see iNet WOL, our stand-alone tool for WOL.
Applications on devices communicate with the outside world through so called TCP ports. iNet detects wether a port is open or closed. For all detected open ports the service using this port is displayed by its real name (if available).
The device info in iNet shows some information related to your iPhone or iPod touch, e. g. its name or its IP.
The modularisized structure of iNet allows to add more features and scanning methods in the future. We will implement by time more network monitoring tools, e. g. DNS-Querys, Traceroute, Whois lookup etc.. iNet Pro will be updated on a regular basis as before. In addition we released iNet for Mac in December 2010 - available via the App Store.
If you want to know what's going on in your local network - iNet Networks Scanner gives you a profound answer.
P.s.: In case you need just the network scan feature of iNet Pro, use the free version iNet - Network Scanner. You can always update to iNet Pro from within iNet to access its full feature set.
What's New in Version 3.2.4
The iPhone X is here. So we had a lot fun to optimize the different iNet layouts for the all new much nicer and bigger screen.
And as allways we worked hard to optimize the code base further. Hoping still for Apple to rethink its no-mac-detection decision.
Was a very useful until Ios11
Was very useful for trouble shooting network issues until iOS 11 crippled the app by limiting its access it network information. Too bad! Hope Apple allows more access but security is important too.
No More for me - Blame Apple if you like
It doesn’t matter to the consumer who is at fault. Without MAC Addresses (and other stupid Apple restrictions, like WiFi coverage maps in a house, etc.), the time has come to move out of Apple’s tightly held proprietary world into the wide open world of Android.
I’ve never jailbroken an iPhone to gain access to a utility that was obviously useful and appropriate to allow. Now I still won’t. Because I’ll have an an Android which allows reasonable things as part of its operating system.
Goodbye iNet Pro. Goodbye Apple.
p.s. iNet - Apple’s abuse of its App writers borders on criminal. To just ruin someone’s business without a care !!! I think the App writers should unionize and force decent, negotiated treatment from Apple - too big for their britches.
