Displays machines, users, and IP addresses of Macs on your network.

IP Scanner overview

IP Scanner scans your local area network to determine the identity of all machines and Internet devices on the LAN. It was designed to allow you to customize your scan results; once a device has been identified, you may assign it a custom icon and name to more easily recognize it at a glance. Powerful results, yet easy and intuitive to use.

Other notable features
  • Sort network list by device name, IP address, MAC address or Last Seen
  • Get an overview of the current network or view changes over time in the 'cumulative mode'
  • Highly configurable display - don't need to see the MAC address column, then don't display it! Text too small, then make it larger!
  • Double-click a device to obtain more information and to customize its appearance; assign custom icons based on MAC address or IP number
  • Add devices you know to a whitelist to better highlight new/unknown ones
  • Right-click a device to initiate Ping or port scans
  • Local network segments are scanned automatically; custom ranges may be added manually

If, when you launch the app, your browser is redirected to a German YouTube clip, it means you are using a pirated serial number! The app will still work, but consider buying a license at some point!

Excellent – However, free version gives only 5 IP addresses. After clicking ‘registration’ IP Scanner directed me to Kagi, where the ‘upgrade’ cost was $30. If the cost were $5-$10, I probably would have paid for it. Only later did I find IP Scanner Home on the Apple App Store at $5. As it is, I searched out, and then downloaded, Angry IP Scanner, a cross platform open source scanner. I knew the subnet mask range from the Macintosh Network Preferences, and the range of the possible IP addresses for my local network router, the IP address which I was trying to find. After the Angry IP Scanner completed its search, I sorted on ping time, and had my address.

If I can't trust them with the "free" claim, why should I trust them with my credit card and my computer network? Downloading was a waste of my time. The same output is freely available on my Airport Extreme.

I find this program very useful and appreciate the developers efforts. Being able to assign icons to the different devices is a helpful feature.

Something went wrong here on MacUpdate. The latest version is 3.32 not "5.5 MB". 5.5 MB is the size of the download.

Not free as listed. If you read the description as "free for up to 6" ... if you have 6 or less devices, you dont need an IP Scanner

RIPOFF! Not free. Only scans 6 devices then demands $30 to actually work. Stupid. WASTE of my time. Will never look at anything from this dev again. The worst type of douchebaggery. I actually took the time to create an account to leave this crappy review I am so fried that they wasted my time to install and immediately DELETE it. CIAO.

I used MacUpdate Desktop to install what I believed was IP Scanner. This is NOT IP Scanner, this is IP Broadcaster dated Nov 1, 2012, 10:27 AM. Total FAIL!! Delete.
