iNet - explore your network!
Find out about security risks and keep your network under control. 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 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
• Airport Monitor
• Wake on Lan
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.
• 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
• 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
• 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 (soon) for iPad.

[Fixed] Deleting of added own icons
[Fixed] Better detection of own device

Nice features, small room for improvement
I just moved from a Ubiquiti Unifi Access Point to an Apple Time Capsule. I was really missing the ability to view the wireless client list, and assign custom names to the clients that I had with the Unifi, so I was looking for an app that gave me similar functionality on the Mac. Found several references to this app online, so thought I’d try it out. For $10, it’s not a bad app. Allows me to do exactly what I wanted, which was to view all connected clients and give them custom names. The icon set is nice as well, however the ability to add custom icons would be really nice. Things such as Belkin light switches and Nest thermostats really have no corresponding icons in the provided icon sets.
Also, I was really disappointed to find out that some of the features of this particular app do NOT work with newer Time Capsule models. I was looking forward to, based on the provided screenshots, the ability to view network traffic graphs and signal strength of connected devices. There is a small blurb in the description stating which models are supported which I did not see at first glance. Screenshots say “Supports most Apple Routers”, so I assumed the newest ones would work fine. Other than these minor issues, the app still does what I wanted.
Not as advertised . . .
I bought this app with high hopes but was very disappointed when it did not work as advertised on the app store. Two of the five screen shots show network graphs & traffic from Apple Airport devices with only a very small text disclaimer that the feature doesn't work with the newer ac devices. I feel there should be a more prominent disclaimer at the beginning of the description. If there was, I probably wouldn't have bought it.
Disappointing Functionality and Organization
I have purchased the iPod, iPad, and now the Mac version of this software. I run a network with 6 subnets, 5 wireless access points, and 3 servers running linux.
* It’s really handy to be able to scan another subnet from my workstation instead of running over to the access point with my iPod.
* It keeps machines information cached so the historical data from previous scans can be reviewed.
* The Bonjour scanner is useful for discovering services on the net and is well organized.
* This app lacks a port scan feature and fails to detect MAC addresses like it should.
* All information about a specific device is not accesible through the detail listing for that device. For example: If I perform a scan and click on a device with the IP 172.16.12.154, the software will list the IP address, Host visibility, and online status. To view a list of Bonjour services for that device, the user must change to another screen and sift through another list of hosts to find that information. The device cannot be ping’d or a port scan performed by the user.
* The software appears to get its information from the server instead of the devices themselves. I had some machines come up on a scan that haven’t been connected to the net a year before I bought the app. These machines did, however, have entries in the DHCP & DNS servers.
* This app lacks the functionality and is organized very differently from it's iOS versions.
