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

As long as it follows your course of development for this software. I know you want to keep it small, tight, fast and clean. I fully support that. If there is a way to implement it keeping that in mind I say go for it. -WS

Feature Request Range Enable/Disable Check Box/Toggle

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

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?

Many times I do the same scan over and over in non-contiguous mode. 192.168.1.1 -----> 192.171.1.254 or 192.168.1.1 -----> 192.168.1.50 192.168.30.1 -----> 192.168.30.50 192.168.80.1 -----> 192.168.80.50 192.168.100.1 -----> 192.168.100.50 Note: I use a different subnet mask.

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

GUI in other Languages

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. Thanks

@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

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

@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.

@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

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.

@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.
