Very Simple Network Scanner

Ping Scan and simply reports all device IP's it found.
Very Simple Network Scanner is a freeware Windows tool created to help you scan a user-defined IP range and retrieve information about the alive hosts.

With a very appealing interface, Very Simple Network Scanner lets you define the IPs you wish to scan straight from the main window, with dedicated options to resolve MAP addresses, scan ports and reverse DNS lookup.

Once you're ready setting up the scanning process, just hit the “Scan Network” button and let the program do its magic.

It usually takes just a few seconds to come to an end, but this also depends on the number of IPs Very Simple Network Scanner has to scan, but the application remains light on hardware resources.

The main window shows each device IP, along with status, DNS, time, TTL, device type, sub type, ports and MAC address. All details can be included in a separate report generated by the program and saved for further analyzing. Additionally, Very Simple Network Scanner shows statistics, but also report details to provide a better overview over the scanning process.

As said, the app works flawlessly on most Windows workstations and doesn't hamper system performance at all, without even asking for administrator privileges when running on Windows 7.

All in all, Very Simple Network Scanner does its job and only requires minimum configuration, which is great news for beginners. There's no help file available in the package, so in case you get yourself into trouble, you have no other option than to search the Internet for an answer.
