Advanced IP Scanner Portable, scan a network in seconds!
"Besides retrieving the status, name, IP and MAC address for all the computers on a LAN, Advanced IP Scanner comes with a decent set of functions designed to help you remotely manage PCs. These including sending 'Wake-On-LAN' or 'Shut down' commands." —Olivian Puha, (May 19, 2016)
"Advanced IP Scanner is a perhaps misnamed, but nevertheless potentially useful Windows network scanner... In terms of sophistication, this is no Nmap port scanner or Wireshark packet analyser, but it does provide a simple and basic overview of what’s connected to your network." —Andrew Harrison, (28 Jun 2012)
"Excellent program. Not require driver installation, you can run the installation program, work with lists of selected computers, assign the name of the list of ports, upload the results of scanning formats .xml, .html, .csv." —Greg88888 (a user), (December 23, 2015)
Advanced IP Scanner is a reliable and free network scanner to analyse LAN.
   The program shows all network devices, gives you access to shared folders, provides remote control of computers (via RDP and Radmin), and can even remotely switch computers off.
   It is easy to use and runs as a portable edition.
   It should be the first choice for every network admin.
