Suggestion: Thread Time-Out Option

1 year ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Good Morning. I would like to suggest adding a time-out option for the threads gathering all the information. I left NetScan running overnight to do a lot of work gathering a lot of information, but every time I run it, it never seems to finish and is stuck on a few last threads. I assume this is because NetScan thinks eventually it will get the information? It would be nice to have an option

Yes 20 is good, may we ask of 30 as the default? Thanks -WS

This happens to me all the time. I run NetScan from several shares I sometimes I forget the columns. Could you just add the MAXCOLS value in the GUI in Options? -WS

You may have your thread set to 400 and it stops until the software can resolve the treads to move on. Just a thought. -WS

Threading issues in latest versions

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, We have noticed since around version 6.1.1 or so and up to 6.1.4 that the threads never seem to finish in the scan. If you press the Force Stop nothing happens the program just hangs until you end it with Task Manager. I have used the software long enough that I have seen this before especially when the workstation has been powered on for more than a month without rebooting, or if you

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Hummm, I wasn't talking using this setting for ranges because you are right you cannot figure out what the network is. But.... Doesn't the software know network and broadcast because of the CIDR notation? Example: Enter: 10.32.8.9 /24 and it (the software) knows the range is 10.32.8.0 to 10.32.8.255 network is the first the last is the broadcast. Enter: 10.32.4.89 /27 and it (the s

Andrew, The above is not working well. Example: I have to add *.*.*.32 for a /28 network but then later when I scan a /24 network I am skipping the .32 address on that /24 network. I have to go remove the *.*.*.32 and if I forget then I am missing one address or in my case lots of addresses on /25 /26 /27 /28 networks with all the added exceptions. ... then on a /23 network it skips the *.

I will keep an eye on it. I may have figure out the HTML one. I noticed that if I hover an item that has ... after it but only one or two characters are missing it will NOT pop-up. If I move column over a bit I can see the last two characters or if I move it back a bit and cannot see say four letters then it does the pop-up. Maybe the HTML area is getting messed up because of the periods in the I

Re: Suggestion: add checkbox "Ping network addresses (i.e. x.x.x.0)"

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, Thanks, great idea, and I understand are saying no need for it especially if all networks are /24 or /16, however since I am using CIDR on (/23 /24 /25 /26 /27 /28) the network address is not always .0 sometimes it is x.x.x.64 or x.x.x.96 etc. depending on the network. I was hoping the check box would look at the CIDR information and ignore the network magically. Thanks for a quic

Suggestion: add checkbox "Ping network addresses (i.e. x.x.x.0)"

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, I use the CIDR scanning a lot and one of the things I noticed is; it will scan the entire range which is exactly what it is supposed to do. However I typically do not want to scan the Network Address. The reason this would be nice is that when I ping/scan the x.x.x.0 address and am looking up a lot of information the scan gets stuck on this one address and sometimes never finishes unle

Andrew, I appreciate all the work you have done on this. The update didn't seem to fix it. Not that you need to spend a ton of time on this just wanted to note it because you fixed the pop-up to work so much better. I thank you very much. I will do more testing if needed if you feel the need to track it down more. I have another tweak I would put in a new thread. Thanks -WS

Re: Suggestion: extend the reading time of pop-up information

I cannot seem to get the column to show the rest of the information in the pop-up no matter what I do. Do you think the content is messing up the display? I see & and ; and such. I know when I do some programming sometimes I would have issues with programming symbols being displayed because the program had a hard time telling if it was part of the program. Just a thought. Thanks -WS

Andrew, Fantastic!!! This is perfect! Works very well. Thank you so much. Note: I may have found one tiny bug. I have the "HTML Page Title" column and for some reason the pop-up wil not pop-up all the time and when it does it truncates the last part of the information. All the other columns work fine. Screenshot should show a complete IP address. Thanks -WS

Andrew, Try Options > Remote WMI > Product Key, I don't have this option in my NetScan, is this because I use custom XML files? If yes what is the code to add it manually? Thanks -WS

Suggestion: extend the reading time of pop-up information

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, Good Morning. I have a suggestion for the pop-up information in the scan information line. Sometimes there is an error or more information when you hover the mouse over a section in that line. Normally the information is fairly short and you can read it or it if it is a bit longer the pop-up goes away and then you hover over it again and read the rest before it goes a way. Today how

Re: Netscan did not find the router

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

@brainstuff Please note that if you are scanning less than 15 minutes apart, your router may be looking at this as an attack and will stop responding to pings from your address or to any address for a while (5 to 15 minutes). I have seen this on many devices as security has been increased over the years. I have also experienced this with anti-virus software computers: one ping works, the next

Re: Remote application idea - Quick CMD

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, Just a minor note about a very minor problem: When in the applications windows (add/edit/remove), you cannot see the entire command if the command is very very long. I am using some very long commands as I find this part of the application very useful. I have 2 monitors and can expand the column out across both screens to see the entire command but the software truncates it. Again

Yikes, that is a problem using public IP addresses on your private network is not a good thing. It can cause some very strange issues. You really should consider changing your network to a private IP address space.

Re: Why doesn't the MAC address always show up?

If you are on a routed network, your router has to allow the MAC address. If not, you may not see any or only the routers MAC for all devices.

Re: Feature request: CIDR Notation

2 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Humm, why I think it is a bug is, I need to enter the single IP and then enter the CIDR number for the single IP so it will tell me the range. It does that when you start a from scratch is not supposed to do that if you re-use the range? Thanks.
