detecting PC's on Network -Scanner

@famreeks You are scanning Public IP Addresses, you are seeing other devices on the internet (WAN). You need to scan your Private IP Addressed Network (LAN). Give the above links a read it will help explain a lot. -WS

Another good question would be: Windows 7? If so all the send features are turned off by default. Even if you turn them on it may still be blocked by UAC. Just and FYI. -WS

Does this work from the Windows Command Prompt: wmic /node:remotehost bios get serialnumber Or PowerShell: (Remove the space after http.

Maybe Try scanning your network for this port 17988. I looked at the script and they are scanning that port and then polling information. If you have the SNMP options checked in NetScan you might get information that states they are iLO devices. -WS

New Feature\New Idea "Regular Expressions"

6 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

@Andrew I think all you really need to do is make it like (Options | Applications) but add it like the Remote WMI, Remote Registry...just continue with Remote PowerShell, Remote VBScript, Remote CMD. Then you can run any script. It is up to the programmer to write the script to take the passed options (i.e. IP address) and have the script connect remotely and do the work they need. I have a Sc

Here is another example of where the idea I posted in “How to get local users permissions or group participation from scanned hosts” comes into play.

How to get local users permissions or group participation from scanned hosts

@Serj My fears with the extra options you are requesting are they will take this project away from its main purpose; To scan your network for computers and gather some basic information (just basic information). Adding all these extra features that IMHO are not part of an IP Scanner software will make it become bulky and bloated. Besides what you are looking for can be done with PowerShell whi

Save authentication for Remote Suspend?

IMHO: This sounds like a bad idea to me. Why? because this software is portable and I would not want passwords rememberd in settings file or in the registry.

command shutdownall???

6 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

@safronov This is really not needed in a network scanning software. This is really not the purpose of this software. This can be done in so many ways and it built right into windows xp thru 7. Here is a Command Script that will do what you need. Log on to a machine with Admin Rights and the same user name and password needed for the remote machines to shutdown. A domain Admin account works

CPU / Processor identification

Network Scanner only does a very generic WMI call. It only displays what the scanned computer returns. This is a bug in Windows XP here is the article from Microsoft: Instead use Registry in Network Scanner CPU Make/Model

DHCP discovery failure

6 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

@STF Typically if you are port scanning or testing for certain services (i.e. DHCP) you would not scan on a system that has those services running or those ports are in use. I would never recommend scanning from a DHCP, DNS, AD, GC, FTP, HTTP or like server. This can easily skew your results. If you are just checking IP addresses then most of the time it will not be an issue. @Andrew If it i

Re: "Operating system denied access to file" error

7 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

Are you on a Domain? If yes, are you using a Domain Admin account to do the scanning? If you are not on a Domain, Are you using a Local Administrator account? If you are is that account on all machines you are trying to access and is the password the same on all machines. If no, then you need to setup an Administrator account on all machines with the same password.

Re: Managing bookmarks

True, however since I have those scans saved, I just load them, works like a charm.

Re: Managing bookmarks

7 years ago, by WindowsStar in Network Scanner Forum

You can sort of do that by using: File | Recent Files and Current Config. However that is a bit of extra work. In my case I don't think I would really use bookmarks. I typically don't scan the same thing over and over; instead I do different scans to see what is down or not working et cetera.

DHCP discovery failure

VB script as information in column

Hummm, I guess a Remote Run... could be added under Options. Then you could run a program or script on a remote machine??? I am not sure if this would work correctly unless all the remote machines were pre-staged to be able to run scripts remotely. Windows XP -> Windows 7 disable this by default.
