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
-> 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 Pro LanScan edition:
-> Only 4 hostnames are fully displayed - You'll see the first 3 chars of the others
What's New in Version 3.3
+ All URL are now HTTPS to be compliant with App Transport Security
+ Updated MAC addresses vendors
Does not do what developer states ...
This app does not do what the developer states. It allows you to enter or edit the hostname, BUT THEN removes most of the name and replaces it with self promotion to get the (paid) PRO version. For example, at first one of my network device's hostname displayed "DIR-601" but a few seconds later the program changed it to "DIR *** Go Pro! ***". I have another host with the name "DIR-615", but then the app automatically changed that one also to "DIR *** Go Pro! ***". So really it does NOT actually display or allow you to enter the hostname because it goes and changes it. VERY deceptive description above under program features: "… host name (4 max) and vendor associated". IT SHOULD SAY DON'T BOTHER CHANGING HOSTNAME BECAUSE IT WILL JUST DEFAULT BACK TO AN AD FOR THE PRO VERSION!
Quick, simple tool for quick, simple tasks
This is a great tool for finding devices and their IP addresses on a simple home network. It's blazing fast, and gives you just enough info. If you've got complex routing/addressing, or need to give fixed names to devices, it's not what you're looking for.
I've found it immensely useful for finding addresses for Raspberry Pis, network bridges, etc. I might buy the pro version, even though the extra features aren't critical for me.
Don’t bother with this lame duck
It found hosts on other subnets in the 192.168/16 range but those not on my /16 subnet were bogus and unreachable. You must copy/paste your way from it’s erroneously returned list of hosts to your tool/app of choice to check out the hosts it says exist (just take a close look at the 5th thumbnail above).
