Wouldn't that be in AD? So you can just open ADCU and search for the name?

Re: network scanner takes, newer Dell printers offline

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Wow, I am having the same issue with C3765dcn MFP's. I have flashed the firmware, swapped boards, memory and it still does the same thing. I even changed out the switch it was connected to updating it to a much newer and better Cisco layer 3 switch. I have changed the patch cables etc. Nothing seems to fix it. Dell was on site and replaced the board but it did not fix the problem. Very strange. H

How to remove ad banners

Noticed the banner ads and I am sure you had to do this to keep the project going and I really do understand. However is there a way you can offer NetScan without the banner for those of us who have donated? Thanks

Re: How to detect?

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

One thing you can do with netscan is to look for open ports that are not normally open on your workstations. (i.e. 21, 23, 25, 80, 110, etc.)

Scanning for entries in user hives in registry

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

IMHO: I think this is a completely separate tool/software, that I would like to see developed. I like the idea and I can think of many uses. For things like this (in other words beyond the scope of the software) I have written CMD, VBScript or PowerShell Scripts that can do many extra things. An example: I have added items under the "Open Computer...". Currently I have items lik

Re: Feature Request: UDP Port Scanning

Unfortunately it does not see the Rogue DHCP servers. I does see my real DHCP servers on Windows Server 2008 R2. The Rogue Servers (3 of them) were on a *IX box OS unknown, clever. -WS

Re: Feature Request: UDP Port Scanning

Thanks for all the extra information. The other day I found 3 Rogue DHCP servers on our network. I thought that DHCP might be the issues but all the utilities I used could not find or see any DHCP servers except for our REAL DHCP servers for some reason. I had another network guy help me and we used WireShark to finally discover why I was having DHCP issues; we found 3 DHCP servers and I was

Andrew any possibility to have the option to scan UDP ports as well as the TCP ports. Maybe toggle it on or off? Thanks.

Maybe add another line below the ready | threads .. | scan with the last selection? Could be informational for; book marks, ip scan, etc. etc. much better than more information in the bar. Just my 2 cents. Edit: with the ability to turn it on or off (the added line of information that is).

Logged on network users not displaying

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

You need to have a Created Admin Account or the Built-in Administrator account (disabled by default) set with the SAME password on all machines. Then use that account to scan the network. Make sure you start NetScan with the right mouse click and Run As Administrator. -WS

When Using the Scanner I get locked out.

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Many Domain Accounts have the lock out feature enabled by default or are set by the Senior Administrator. This is normal and very common. If your Domain is using this or extra security you will need to have your Admin account excluded or have a special Admin account created for scanning the network. Or of course you could turn off the lock out feature, but I would not recommend that because your

Network Scanner Behavior Win XP vs Win 7

Thanks for the reply. I know the settings are the same, I exported them from the Win XP machine and imported them to the Win 7 machine. Firewall....did not think of that. I will try disabling it and see what happens. Great idea. -WS

Network Scanner Behavior Win XP vs Win 7

Recently I upgraded my main computer from Windows XP (32bit) to Windows 7 (64bit). Both machines are up and running, both have the latest Network Scanner on them, both have the same settings.

Is there a way to have the Friendly Name displayed if any of the selections (MAC, IP or Host) has a name associated with it. So if when scanning I have some machines friendly name associated with MAC but others with IP is will always display the friendly name?? Or even if I have the friendly name associated with 2 or all 3?? Many thanks -WS

Correct, but then you have to go to the menu and select MAC then pick the ones you want, then go back to the menu and pick IP then pick the ones you want (But maybe that is not working like I think it is). Nice to make the selection from the add box with a pull-down. Just a suggestion for ease, not to make some major programming changes (how the list is stored, etc.). I understand if would add to

@Andrew, wow how brain dead I am, I looked at that screen several times and never noticed the pull-down. Embarrassed I missed that. Thanks. Edit: Update, you really notice that pull-down in Windows XP, but in Windows 7 the pull-down arrow is at the end and I guess easily missed, still my fault, but your screen shot was so helpful and easy I was wondering why I missed it.

Feature request: selecting IP or MAC address for the Friendly Name Association

5 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, I use the Friendly Name feature in Network Scanner and noticed that it associates the name with the IP address. Are you able to make that selectable? As in let me pick IP address or MAC address for the Friendly Name Association? On my home network my systems get a DHCP address and many times they will get a different IP so when I scan the Friendly Name is associated with the wrong device.

Store Multiple Admin Password option

Feature Request Range Enable/Disable Check Box/Toggle

5 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Very true and I do use them, guess the thought was if a scan was open and someone said hey redo that but only grab the printers (sub set of numbers) you could just click the others off and re-scan. The bookmark list is getting quite big and with 4, 5 or 6 sets of IP addresses scans saving every combination is becoming a bit difficult to find just the right one. The check boxes solve that. Book

Store Multiple Admin Password option

5 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

This feature would be nice on all our off domain machines. Some of the machines are set with one password and others with another on the same subnet. I don't know if there is a way to have the softwre try a list of passwords? Security?

Network scanner - no serial number column

5 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Andrew, just launched the software on a machine I have never used it on and Serial Number, Model, Part Number, and Asset Tag are not listed by default. I must have added mine long ago and since I use the same machine over and over they are always there. I also have a different RAM Size WMI call. Hope this helps to clear this up. -WS

I have to agree with Andrew. We have offices all around the world and everyone in the IT community speaks American English. Plus we have seen many applications bogged down or too much time and energy put into supporting other languages even if the ability is done so the community can support the language translations. There a too many issues that come up: (sample) A very short word xxxx in Americ

New Feature

I love the color option. Could you make it much easier to use, plus faster to access and all fields accessible. Idea below. Suggestion is to Right Mouse Click on the item in the column (i.e. IP Address) and pick the color from there, this is the same place you click to put stuff in numerical order or alphabetical order.
