Scan settings to detect Chromebooks   05 May 2021, 10:36

Can SoftPerfect Network Scanner software detect Chromebooks, and if so, what will be the settings?

I can see the OS (Linux), but I cannot see the Make, Model or SN like I can with Windows and Apple machines.

Chromebooks are like regular computers, so a standard scan should detect them just like any other device, i.e. no specific settings are required.

However, Chromebooks do not expose Make/Model and Serial number information in any standard way like SNMP, SSH or WMI, as far as I know. It is likely there is no way extract that information remotely.
