November 17, 2009 in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Happymagenta today is proud to announce Net Scan 1.3, an update to their very popular network 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. Additionally, Net Scan discovers Mac and PC hosts along with any other (even hidden) network servers and devices, shows related network information and services they run.

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 or Windows (NetBIOS) 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.

Feature Highlights:
* Scan both LAN and the Internet
* Scan any IP address or network range
* Bonjour and Windows hostnames lookup
* Country of origin detection of the network owner
* Network range and AS number lookup
* MAC address and hardware vendor lookup
* Wake on LAN for hosts with MAC addresses
* Wake over the Internet (using proper routers)
* WHOIS hostnames, IP addresses, ASNs
* Group results into multiple histories
* E-mail scan results
* Predefined services for your convenience
* Possibility to add custom services
* Checks ICMP, TCP and UDP
* Faster asynchronous network I/O
* Works with Wi-Fi, 3G, EDGE and GPRS
* Eye-pleasing interface design

Version 1.3 sports many key new features and UI improvements. Net Scan offers a much improved Bonjour and Windows hostnames lookup. The application successfully recognizes network names of PC and MAC computers even on different LAN segments or over Internet (or IP network). Wake on LAN/WAN was improved and now works over the internet. Additionally, Net Scan offers a much improved WHOIS lookup, and avoids showing spam records skipping to the needed record at once. Administrators can now send network, host scan or whois results by e-mail.

"The main difference between Net Scan and alternative network scanners currently available for the iPhone is the possibility to scan any network of user's choice - not just the LAN," said Pavel Ahafonau, founder and CEO of Happymagenta. "Along with other anticipated features requested by our customers, we made Bonjour and Windows hostnames lookup and Wake on LAN work over the Internet and not just over LAN."
