Network Radar is an easy-to-use network discovering and managing tool that will allow you to retrieve detailed information on network devices.
• Scan your network and retrieve detailed information on network devices (see below)
• Run useful Network Tools (see below)
• Use the Monitoring function and get notified when the reachability of a device changes
• Simply connect to a device by double-clicking on the list (Quick Connect)
• Assign your own names and choose from provided icons or import own icons
• Use the simple rules / actions system for automatic processing of devices
• Scan an interface's network, a certain subnet or a range of ip addresses
• Export a scan to CSV, TXT or PDF
• and much more...
• IP address
• MAC address
• Vendor name (i.e. “Apple, Inc.“ or „DELL“)
• Domain name (DNS, Reverse lookup)
• Bonjour name
• NetBIOS name
• Services (open ports)
• Response time (ping time)
• Mac and iPhone/iPad model identifier (i.e. „iMac9,1“)
• Lookup Macs directly in Mactracker or EveryMac.com
• Icon (automatically for Macs with model identifier)
• Special function (i.e. host is standard gateway)
• Reachability status
• SSH / Telnet username, port and password
• Device Log
Included Network Tools:
• Remote shutdown/restart/sleep of other Macs
• Wake On LAN
• HTTP, HTTPS, AFP, SMB, FTP, VNC, RDP, SSH, TELNET for Quick Connect
Supported Network Interfaces:
• Built-in WiFi
• Built-in Ethernet
• Apple's USB to Ethernet Adapter
• Apple's Thunderbolt to Ethernet Adapter
• Apple's Thunderbolt Display Ethernet
Please note that the amount of information Network Radar can find depends on the network it scans.
What's New in Version 1.1.11
NEW: Tooltips for host names.
NEW: Set the number of concurrent pings in the preferences.
FIX: Crash on some devices during a scan.
Just what I was looking for…
UPDATE: I failed to mention the network tools stuff — I haven’t gotten to test this, but the app is supposed to be able to send AppleScript via SSH, which will be way cool if it works as I want it to - sorry I’m reviewing without testing that part :(
First, this is a great solution for crawling your network in a nice GUI. The app worked very fast to identify the two dozen devices on my small network.
Second, the details offered are quite comprehensive. Each of my Macs was identified by model. In addition to the default columns, you can see MAC address, NetBIOS name and whether there are open ports. You can select the image to display for the device if your device is not identified by the application.
Finally, the monitoring function is great. When active, it will give you a notication center alert (and message) for changes in status for the monitored device.
I have a few suggestions that I hope the developer will consider for a future release:
1. Add the ability to select columns by right-clicking the detail view rather than going through the View -> Host List menu
2. Add more icons for devices, *especially* streaming media devices and game systems.
In all, really pleased with the app! By the way, if you are new to the app, make sure you check out the “Rules” tab in preferences. You can assign rules for images by matching the domain, bonjour or netbios name. One app can’t keep track of all the models of printers, but with the rules you can setup your network one time easily.
