Nice clean very Mac like design (many network tools suffer here).

Has a nice set of functions and takes the approach of using the system to make the various connections to resources (smart) like "Connect via HTTP" to a network device fires off safari and makes a connection.

It is a little light in the ability to monitor devices, which seems to be limited to simple ping.

This tool also works only on your subnet. There is no apparent way to extend this tool to look across subnets or even outside your network.

With this rather nice interface, I would like to see this tool add the ability to monitor a network, network range, or device by IP address. Additionally, the monitoring could easily be extended to monitor the actual service I am interested in, such as monitoring HTTP of my server in Dallas on the internet and monitor AFP on my server in my local network at the same time. Be aware, monitoring HTTP or AFP is more than making a connection, it involves a command, response and data check for HTTP, or even periodically mounting an AFP volume and checking for a directory list element.

With the developer's slant for design, adding detailed graphs and realtime network EKG style output for monitored devices should be a natural fit where the host information is shown, maybe even a tab...

Overall, this is a nice utility and an excellent design but needs to be built further before it becomes part of my network tool arsenal. (PS, and I really want to see that happen) For now, I will wait for "Network Monitor Pro"

The activation process was rather convoluted, requiring setting up an account at Paddle, whatever that is. And I had to wait 24 hours for my license code to show up. The process did not follow the instructions but ended up working. Now I can try out the program.

It appears that I paid ($9.99) for a demo version of the software. The email to get the license didn't work. I received an email from paddle.com (who ever they are) that provided a link to the coupon to receive the license key. I then had to create an account on paddle.com (not that I wanted to) which after 3 attempts and a password reset finally worked. I get the key and apply it to the software and voila it is just a crippled demo version. I should just have gone to their website an paid another $10 ($19.99) for the full version...

There is a problem in the activation process at Paddle, they are working on it. Some activations are failing. This is not a problem of the app.
In this case, just contact support@mac-attender.com and it will be solved fast, like in my case.

Easy to use app. fast and good support.

I've sent email to support@mac-attender directly and via their site and still no answer and no code to activate after 5 days! Already had Paddle account and the email from Paddle had NO code so I'm stuck in a loop and can't activate!

License not working, no activation.
So: no features, no ease of use, no value, no stability.
Money for nothing?

Can't say how the application works as the bizarre and byzantine procedure for "licensing" the product does NOT work. Support questions are directed back here to MacUpdate... Not an auspicious beginning, and a shady way to behave with users. It suggests that either MacUpdate or the vendor are not too swift... which augurs poorly for the application itself.

Nice interface, but can't compete with IPNetMonitor (running on the same Mac).

Network Radar did not identify correctly 2 out of 3 Airport Express on the network, it did not identify the AppleTV as such, so you have to do that manually.

It did not find a Fritz Repeater, either.

The port scan is limited to port 1 - 1023.

It is a nicely designed interface, but under the hood it is still work in progress, I would say.

I was not precise enough, so some clarification: Network Radar did identify the vendor IDs for the devices it found correctly, but not the type of device, even if Apple is the vendor.

IPNetMonitor does not give you the type of device, but the name of the device, which Network Radar missed out for 4 out of 9 devices on the network.

Why haven't I found this before ? Works great at home and also in the university (huge network). Was very helpful in finding a specific server with a open port.

Digging deeper, to delete all traces of this app, I see the app is being a tad naughty - all the prefs etc refer to "com.mac-attender.network-radar" with multiple variants around this. Perhaps the app is pretending to be an official Apple/Mac app with this ambiguous approach to its name?

Actually, that's exactly the way preference files are supposed to be named. They start with the word "com" followed by the publisher's name, followed by the app name.

For example, the preference file for Safari is com.apple.Safari.plist.
Apple is the publisher, Safari is the app.

Likewise, for Adobe Reader the preference file is com.adobe.Reader.plist.

Since this app is published by a company called "mac-attender," then the preference file SHOULD be exactly what they used!
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
