What does Angry IP Scanner do?
It simply pings each IP address to verify if it's still available, as well as solving hostnames, defining MAC addresses, scanning ports... The amount of information collected can be increased by means of plug-ins and wireshark. It also offers additional functions such as NetBIOS (device name, group name and Windows user), selection of favorite IP ranges, detection of web servers...
The scanned results can be saved in different formats: CSV, TXT, XML or IP-Port. With the help of a few plug-ins, Angry IP Scanner can obtain any information about the scanned IPs. If you're familiar with Java, you can even create a plug-in to improve the user experience.
