    Hi,

    I'd like your opinion on the next tool, ref. Angry IP Scanner.
    You can find it and run it from the following link.

    Hey Hey

    I just downloaded the program and played with it a lil bit on my local network.

    Seems to be quite nice, especially considering the size, and it's multiple functions. I wouldn't want to use it to scan a large number of ports on all the hosts I'd prolly use something like nmap for that, but as far as scanning the IPs and a few ports on a system, and grabbing the NetBios information it seems to be very nice.

    Menh! It's no big whoop actually. Superscan will do most of what you want in a windows
    environment as will the win port of nmap.

    I believe that it's better to build your own port scanner (a simple shell script) instead of taking one from the web. Even if your scanner is not so good, it's made by you and this is the most important thing

    First, i'm not familiar with scripts, ( not yet )
    Second, I took it from the web just to ask everyone's opinion, thank you for your opinion.
    Third, Why don't you post one of your port scanners or explain me the simple shell.

    Mac OS X has a nice Port Scanner... Although you will have to review the output manually... It's not like nmap or anything but it is kinda cool, and comes built into the Mac Network Utilities... Along with whois, ping, tracert, etc...

    Again, this is only with Mac OS X... Just visual interp. of the un*x network commands...

    DISCUSSION


    The Network Utility combines several information and troubleshooting tools you may find helpful if you understand basic networking.

    Use the Network Utility to:
    o Check your computer's network interfaces (Info)
    o Review network performance statistics (Netstat)
    o Test access to specific hosts or IP addresses (Ping)
    o Convert between IP addresses and host names (Lookup)
    o Find user information (Whois, Finger)
    o Scan active TCP ports (Port Scan)

    Help for some of these tools is available in Terminal. Type "man" followed by the tool's name (for example, "man ping").

    I think it's quite handy if you have a windows network and is interested on knowing which hosts are alive and their netbios info. It has a single special purpose, and is quite small.
    If you need something else, move on to another tool. If it fits your needs, it isn't a bad choice. Simple as that.
