SoftPerfect Network Scanner 6.0.2
A free multithreaded IP, SNMP, NetBIOS scanner that can detect hidden shares on a LAN
A great thing about this app is that it doesn't have to be installed since it consists of only an executable file, so it's only a matter of seconds until you're ready to go.
The interface of SoftPerfect Network Scanner is very clean and user friendly, but it hides so many great things that it will take a couple of minutes until you discover and get acquainted with them all.
The scanning process is pretty intuitive, so the only thing you need to do is to input the range of IPs you wish to scan. Afterwards, you can not only open computers, but also send messages, initiate a remote showdown operation, send wake-on-LAN signal or start a DHCP or UPnP Device Discovery.
SoftPerfect Network Scanner does a great thing when it comes to handling computer resources, so the machine won't be slowed down even when doing long scans, as we found out during our tests.
The settings menu is quite rich in options and enables you to configure every feature of the application, so SoftPerfect Network Scanner is indeed a highly-customizable product.
All things considered, it's safe to say that SoftPerfect Network Scanner is certainly one of the best tools in its category. Thanks to a solid feature pack and highly customizable functions, this software earns a high spot on the list of recommendations.
