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.

Can’t explore my wireless network
I read some of the negative comments about recent airport devices not being supported due something that Apple did. I foolishly assumed that my non Apple router and AP would be supported since several other Apps do so without a problem. WRONG - this App supports ONLY Apple wireless devices! I just wasted 8 Dollars. I usually don’t plug other Apps, but WiFi Scanner is a great example of what and should and can be done. For the record, I have no affliation with that App’s authors.
This does NOT work with newer Aiport/Airport Time Capsules
I purchased this software to monitor network traffic in my small business. It installed fine, and will find the clients connected to our network. Unfortunately, due to SNMP settings which can not be changed on newer Airport and Airport Time Capsule devices, iNet is useless for monitoring network traffic and performance. Basically… it will tell you the IP address and MAC address of what’s connected. That’s it. I too feel like I wasted my money.
I use it for mapping my network and see what IP adress all of my units have. I have used it almost every day and I love it, couldn’t be without it.
