LanScan is a free, 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 (4 max) and vendor associated
-> Discover the SMB domain if any configured
-> Hostname resolution: DNS, mDNS (Apple devices) and SMB (Windows devices)
-> Custom hostname edition
-> Custom comment for each device
-> Export results in CSV files
-> Hide/show each column
-> Align each column as you want
-> No limitation on the number of devices found !

Comparison with the Pro LanScan edition:
-> Only 4 hostnames are fully displayed - You'll see the first 3 chars of the others

Since v4, it's preferred to buy the In-App purchase in LanScan Free edition than buying the LanScan Pro application.

What's New in Version 4.2

* Fixed a crashing bug when hostname length was < 3 letters
* Set [Enter] key as a shortcut to launch scan in IP range edition panel

Perfect for attaching your own names to devices on your LAN

Worth it just for the feature that let’s you assign any name you like to each device that shows up on your LAN. The names can be as long as you like. Much better than the cryptic or non-existent host names that most devices report. For example, instead of your HP printer showing up as “NPI9AC6C8” you can call it “HP Laser Jet 2605dn in the basement”. Pretty useful if you have dozens of devices on there with weird host names and you have no idea what they are. You have to fork out $5 for the pro version for this to work properly, but you can demo it for free.
