Hi.

In Network Scanner, some friendly names appear with a '2x' in front. What does this mean and how can I avoid it?

Thank you.

Most likely, you have more than one identical names assigned to one device, e.g. once by its IP address and once by its MAC address.

You can simply delete the redundant records under Options - Friendly Names / Comments in the main menu.

Alternatively, you can set the application to hide duplicate values in Options - View tab, by setting Repeating values in a column to Hide repetitions:
