Advanced IP Scanner by Famatech

Sometimes on a windows client, you have a need to scan for ip addresses between a predetermined range.

Eg: 192.168.1.1 – 192.168.1.100

There are various legitimate reasons for doing so:

  • Perhaps you have one dhcp server that automatically assigns ip addresses, making it hard for you to remember ip addresses of systems on the network as they keep changing
  • You want an inventory of your systems so you can generate a quick report

I was pleasantly surprised by Famatech‘s Advance IP Scanner tool.

I liked the fact that you could simply type in an ip address range and it would quickly generate a report with the system’s assigned computer names.

A tool like this really comes in handy when there are unknown ip addresses or clients scattered all over your network that you’d like to keep track of in real-time.
