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
• 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.

Cached results ruin this program
I've used iNet for over a year now. While it has some redeeming qualities, simple interface, quick configuration, there are some issues that I can no longer tolerate. The most annyoing is the cached results that appear no matter how many times the cache is cleared. I had an issue with my DHCP server and while it was down, I assigned static IP addresses to a handful of machines that were required to troubleshoot the issue. After the problem was resolved, the server restarted, machines reconfigured for DHCP, and cache cleared from iNet those static IP addresses still show in iNet matched with the MAC addresses of the machines, despite the machines having received new IP addresses from the DHCP server (which coincidentally DON'T show). Secondly, I've had to pay for the iPhone app (originally downloaded as trial and upgraded via in-app purchase) each time I've had to download it and upgrade to Pro, despite their claims of no double charges. All in all, nice try but until these issues are resolved I'll go find an IP scanner that works.
Not Responding… Thats all this app is good for.
I ran 1 scan with this App and now it is practically useless. It went Not Responding while adding a favorite manually and now every time I open it up I get a spinning beachball. Waste of $8 I feel.
Crashed constatly during the process of the first scan.
The scanning is slow compared to how fast Apple Remote Desktop can scan a Local Connection. It’s a pain to add favorites since you can’t right click and say “Add Favorite” or select more than one item at a time. To add a favorite you have to drag 1 by 1 though a huge list and go back down to find the next favorite you want, or you can add the manually by entering the entire MAC Address, IP Address, Subnet and Name of the device (which is just as difficult).
Useful little utility
I use a central file server and Apple’s sharing capabilities are sometimes intransigent. If the server goes away in the Finder it will not come back without rebooting the client. The Bonjour tab in iNet has a connect button that forces my client to go out and connect to the server which once again shows up in Finder. I’m an occasionaly user of this app but that one feature is proving to be extremely useful.
