IP Scanner Pro

IP Scanner Pro for Macintosh scans your local area network to determine the identity of all machines and internet devices on the LAN. Powerful results, yet easy and intuitive to use.
IP Scanner is all about customizing the way you view your network. You may apply custom names and icons to the devices on your network and adjust the type and amount of information you see in the network overview; don't need to see the MAC address column...don't display it! Text too small...make it larger!
IP Scanner can be used in several primary modes: as a way to get a quick overview of which devices are currently on the network, including seeing which devices are actively and passively present, or view network changes over time with IP Scanner's 'cumulative mode', including options to display devices which were once present but now no longer visible.
Finally, by using the whitelist feature you may filter out known and trusted devices to reveal new or unexpected ones, a great way to easily identify unwanted network visitors.
Other notable features:
•Sort network list by device name, IP address, MAC address or Last Seen
•Growl support for notifications of newly discovered devices and changes in device state
•Right-click a device to obtain additional contextualized tool options, including Ping, WOL and Port Scan tools
•Local network segments are scanned automatically; custom ranges may be added manually

What's New in Version 3.39
1) stability improvements
Few bugs; tech support inexistent!!
I would give this five stars but tech support is inexistant. Writing to the dev team is like writing to nobody, I never got an answer whatsoever. In terms of the app itself, bare in mind that device names do not sync via iCloud, so if you plan in installing it in more than one machine, forget about this feature. App sometimes is buggy in the sense that it does not recognize all devices in the first scan - you will need to scan the network two to three times to make sure you have a full picture of all connected devices. Also, custom names do not appear at once, again you will need to scan the network two to three times before the app can display devices with their custom names. This app may be handy for some basic network troubleshooting but it’s still far from being a top notch network tool.
Valuable Tool for Managing your IP Space
Never imagined I’d have to start managing my IP space with a tool like IP Scanner Pro but, with the proliferation of Home Automation and IoT devices, it’s become essential. IP Scanner Pro provides an informative list of devices it finds on my subnet, enabling me to make intelligent decisions about utilization and my network’s architecture. That’s to the data IP Scanner Pro provides, I can see I’m on the verge of needing a new subnet to manage the devices and traffic. Without this tool, I’d be flying blind. IP Scanner Pro provides a well-designed, easy to understand ergo and have been completely stable since I began using it several months ago.
A much improved product
I bought this years ago when my IoT list started to grow. There were some bumps along the way, but I really like this version. Keep up the very good work, and keep up the improvements. I’d like to suggest that you have (as an option) a way to telnet from the IP list.
