[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Happymagenta has released Net Scan 1.1, an update to their very popular ports and networks scanner for iPhone and iPod touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's peerless capabilities and interface, Net Scan will effortlessly scan hosts or network ranges on the Internet or LAN for running services (open ports), as well as dig for other useful information.
Perfect for IT administrators on-the-go and casual use alike, Net Scan can scan by either IP address or any IP network range (both LAN and WAN) for hosts and services and can run in several different modes. Scan for predefined interesting services, for well known and registered services, for any services using port range or any mix of them.
Version 1.1 sports many new features and is a major update. With Net Scan's integrated whois, it is the ultimate tool to access virtually all info about a given host that can be discovered over a network. Easily scan for hostname, IP address, IP network range, autonomous system (AS) number, reverse hostname (PTR DNS record), Bonjour hostname, country of the network owner, services host runs (TCP and UDP open ports), firewall detection results, ping test results as well as MAC address and vendor.

"Prior to Net Scan, there was no program that could scan an arbitrary IP network range. There were other programs that were only able to scan LAN your iPhone is connected to," said Pavel Ahafonau, founder and CEO of Happymagenta. "Working mainly in webhosting business, our engineers needed the tools that would do common network diagnostic tasks on iPhone, including network scanning. So while the intent was to write the application for our own internal use, we felt it would be useful for everyone and released it publicly."
