Advanced IP Scanner scans its local network to allow you to access and see everything that’s on it. This includes the IP addresses for connected devices, files, and other information.
You can control other devices on the network as the administrator through the programs RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and Radmin. RDP, in particular, was made by Microsoft to give a graphic interface that lets a user work on another computer over a network connection. It complements Advanced IP Scanner which runs on both Windows and IOS operating systems and is easy to learn how to use.
As open source software, it is free with a simple design. It only takes a few seconds to download, so you can start monitoring what’s on your LAN (Local Access Network) in minutes. Although Advanced IP Scanner itself is safe, it can still be used to spread ransomware. Radmin extends what you can do with Advanced IP Scanner, especially for technology experts. For example, Radmin can be used for tech support by organizations and companies.
The advantage of having both Radmin and Advanced IP Scanner is being able to work from anywhere even if the computer you need isn’t with you. Even if it is, various processes can become easier and more seamless. One of which is the transferring of files from device to device or, for example, getting a view of your security camera. This is because you can work on those devices as though you were actually in front of them.
To get started, you can enter a range of IP addresses and then click Scan. You can do this manually or with a text file. Afterwards, you can add your most used devices to the Favorites tab to make it easier to find them. This would be useful if you have a lot of devices on your server, especially when you have subnets. Scanning at a slower speed improves the accuracy of the scan. This can be done by clicking on the “Options” under the Settings tab. Then, you go to Performance and check off “High-accuracy scanning.” You can drag the speed to where you need it. Advanced IP Scanner supports the CSV (Comma-separated values) export of IP scans unlike many other scanners. Because it is a portable application, there is no need to install it.
Last but not least, why get an IP scanner? You can scan IP addresses using commands that are already on your operating system. This works if you have only a few things to scan, but not if you have a large network. Spreadsheet tracking was the main way IP addresses were monitored, but inconsistencies were inevitable because there were often multiple administrators updating them. IP scanners give updates in real-time, allowing you to see what’s happening on your network and find problems. The management of IP networks is easily a pain, so why not get an IP scanner and save time?
