Happymagenta releases Scany 1.4 for iPhone and iPod touch

December 14, 2009 in Utilities (E)

[prMac.com] Minsk, Belarus - Happymagenta today is proud to announce Scany 1.4, an update to their popular network exploration tool for iPhone and iPod touch. Developed specifically to leverage the iPhone's peerless capabilities, Scany will effortlessly scan individual 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, Scany offers a natural, easy-to-use interface and features a state-of-the-art asynchronous network engine backed by over 15 years of networking experience. It 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. Besides Mac and PC hostnames, Scany recognizes names of networking capable devices such as game consoles, media servers, TVs, receivers, players, printers, web cameras, routers, switches and many others.

With Scany'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 hostnames lookup

"As a result, we made our network scanner to recognize such devices and their names instead of just reporting anonymous IP addresses."
