DHCP Discovery not working on macOS   07 September 2021, 14:48

I've tried DHCP Discovery function in NetScan v8.1.1 on two different macOS machines: Mac mini 2018 with Big Sur 11.5.2 and Mac Book Air M1 2020 with Big Sur 11.5.2. I always get no results.

Thanks

DHCP Discovery not working on macOS - Fixed   07 September 2021, 15:50

Thank you for your report. We have just fixed the issue preventing DHCP discovery from working in Network Scanner for macOS. It should now work on macOS 10.14 and above. Earlier macOS versions did not allow unprivileged users to open ports below 1024, which is needed for DHCP discovery to work.

Please download the latest build and overwrite your currently installed copy. DHCP discovery should work after that.
