The scanner in Total Network Inventory is an essential instrument that makes it easy to identify available devices within a user’s LAN. All data is retrieved automatically and contains detailed information about devices found on the user’s local area network. The IP device scanner lets you handle several crucial tasks at the same time.
The IP scanner is very flexible and has multiple baseline features in addition to an intuitive interface, easily customizable settings and high operation speed.
One of the core features of any IP scanning software is its security-oriented ability. It provides detailed information about all devices connected to user networks and about the open ports on these devices. One can check whether a particular device is harmful or 100% safe for the network. LAN IP scanners let you track all devices and eliminate any suspicious elements that can be harmful for the network and database security.
Apart from the port numbers and IP addresses, the network IP scanner tool in TNI delivers all possible relevant data out of the box. The scanning process is 100% automated and does not take much time.
One may notice that some of the network elements may be hard to track manually, and the scanner makes it easy to locate them in a short amount of time. It will give the exact IP address of any device within your local network.
The Network Scanner can retrieve detailed data on all available network devices with a simple click. This usually includes the following:
This is just the basic information that the Advanced TNI scanner can retrieve. Check its capabilities and functionality by simply downloading the free trial version of the software.
Before launching the scanner, a network administrator is supposed to set a scan task. This step is necessary because all scan tools operate within a specific range of IP addresses. In other words, you need to specify the network area you want to scan. This can be an IP range, a list of network names or a specific OU from your domain. The tool will then detect and retrieve all information about the devices found according to the scan task. You can build various reports based on this information and then export them to XLSX, CSV and other formats.
The process is pretty intuitive. Simply install Total Network Inventory: the Windows Setup Wizard will walk you through the entire process from start to finish. After starting the program, you will be automatically forwarded to the Scanner tab where you can set scan tasks and start discovering your network. Benefit from the detailed information about each connected device and manage them individually to ensure smooth and safe network operation. The scanner in Total Network Inventory is an essential asset for both home and corporate users.
