Andrew, Thank you once again for your updates and features added. This is a fantastic software and we should all support it! Thanks, WindowsStar

Re: Feature Request - Remote Processes

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Here is a work-around if this feature is not added. Just add a WMI with; Select Name from Win32_Process Where Name = 'Notepad.exe' Just change 'Notepad.exe' to whatever you like. -WS

Feature request: remote processes

I found something that would be neat to have added. You have, Remote Services, Remote File, etc. How about Remote Processes? I needed that one today. -WS

As always you Rock! I noticed I have a super weird funny typo in there "that will beaded to the end" should be "that will be added to the end". Phone spell check trying to help me out...how funny.

Feature request: reordering IP ranges

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Hi, I use the + to add IP ranges a lot, I appreciate so much that you added that feature. I have another request for the Ranges. Will you make it so that you can re-order them? I know it seems trivial but I use the check box a lot to toggle them on/off and I like to keep active ranges available but would also like to have them in order. Currently have I have to wipe out the last 6 ranges

@Andrew, many thanks for that information. Makes sense.

Andrew, do you have the Vendor information built into: WiFiGuard program, seems it is looking up the vendors without the oui.txt file? Would you be able to add this feature to Network Scanner?

I like the idea, however would not want to set a password as an environment variable for security reasons. Just a thought. -WS

Re: NetScan will not STOP scanning

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

@Bill I am not sure what you mean has too many problems. This is one of the best PING/Scanning programs that is FREE on the internet. It is so good I have made donations to support it. If you are new to the software please take a few days to get used to how it works, there are a lot of settings and some that are different from say Windows XP to Windows 7 (x86 vs x64).

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

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

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

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

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

Feature Request: UDP Port Scanning

4 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

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

Re: Feature Request

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).

WMI QUERIES

Or, you could just add the WMI query in a VBScript. You can customize it anyway you like.

Logged on network users not displaying

5 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.

5 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

5 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

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.
