LanScan Pro

By iwaxx

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


LanScan Pro is a simple and efficient IPv4 network scanner that discovers all active devices on any subnet: the local one, or any public subnet that you configure.

-> Auto-detection of configured interfaces: Airport, Ethernet, Virtual interfaces ...
-> Scan the IP range you like, from 1 IP to the whole IPv4 address space!
-> Scan your local network with ARP packets
-> Scan public IP network ranges with Ping / SMB / mDNS packets
-> Display the IP address, MAC address, hostname and vendor associated
-> Hostname resolution: DNS, mDNS (Apple devices) and SMB (Windows devices)
-> Custom hostname edition
-> Export results in CSV files
-> No limitation on the number of devices found !

Comparison with the free LanScan edition:
-> Scanner enhanced and faster
-> Public IP range scan
-> Export in CSV files
-> Hostname resolution without restrictions
-> Hostname edition
-> Better look !

What's New in Version 3.0

+ Scan public networks, not only the local one: Internet, HTTP servers, VPN networks ...
+ Export results in CSV files in a custom folder
+ Total rewrite of the scanner code: consumes x8 times less CPU and x10 times less memory on each scan
+ Total rewrite of LanScan hostname resolution code, now fully asynchronous
+ Display order of hostnames if several are found is now: mDNS, SMB & DNS
+ Column's positions and sizes are now kept on each launch
+ Ready for Yosemite
+ Minimum OS X version is now 10.7
+ Updated MAC addresses vendors

Useful Network Discovery Tool

I was very happy to see the version 3 update this morning. The ability to scan multiple subnets is very useful. I noticed that MAC addresses were returned for local subnet only, but I think that probably has more to do with the filter rules on the layer 3 switch than it does with this app. I have a couple of similar apps that I use for scanning for network devices. I like this one for a quick scan due to it’s performance and simplicity. The export to text feature is useful for dumping to spreadsheet.

I glad to see this app is still in active development. Well worth the $6

*** Rating based on the spartan features of this app. A certain angry open source app has a better feature set, but does not scan as quickly as this one. If those other features (ping response time, open port checks, etc) were included here I would rate *****

I would still purchase this again, and recommend it.

Not Worth Time or Money

This application does not offer much value. I usually don't worry about 5.99 for an application but when the application is as immature as this one then I can't help feeling like I have been fleeced. The main problems I have:

1. Very little in the way of customizing preferences

2. Host name resolution is inconsistent and usually doesn't show results (compare it to Angry IP Scanner, which is free)

3. No port scanning (granted, it doesn't claim to do that so it doesn't weigh too heavily on my opinion)

I compared the app to Angry IP Scanner, which is free. If you can get over the fact that Angry IP Scanner uses Java (written in Eclipse) then go that route. Don't give money to developers that aren't spending time on developing features. I mean seriously, this is a version 3 product?

Waste of money

This app is practically useless. I just bought this app and scanned a network of over 200 ips. This app found all of the IPs but only detected the names of maybe 10-15 of those devices. A complete waste of money. Buy IP Scanner Pro instead. It’s more expensive but you get what you pay for. I just got it and scanned the same network. Found every single device and labeled them correctly. Much more powerful.
