IP Scanner for Macintosh scans your local area network to determine the identity of all machines and internet devices on the LAN. Powerful results, yet easy and intuitive to use.
IP Scanner is all about customizing the way you view your network. You may apply custom names and icons to the devices on your network and adjust the type and amount of information you see in the network overview; don't need to see the MAC address column...don't display it! Text too small...make it larger!
IP Scanner can be used in several primary modes: as a way to get a quick overview of which devices are currently on the network, including seeing which devices are actively and passively present, or view network changes over time with IP Scanner's 'cumulative mode', including options to display devices which were once present but now no longer visible.
Finally, by using the whitelist feature you may filter out known and trusted devices to reveal new or unexpected ones, a great way to easily identify unwanted network visitors.
Other notable features:
•Sort network list by device name, IP address, MAC address or Last Seen
•Growl support for notifications of newly discovered devices and changes in device state
•Right-click a device to obtain additional contextualized tool options, including Ping and Port Scan tools
•Local network segments are scanned automatically; custom ranges may be added manually
IP Scanner is free to use on small networks (up to 6 devices). To see the results from networks of more than 6 devices, please consider the Home or Pro versions of IP Scanner.

Dont expect ore than it says it does - I'm very happy with the ip scanner. It does exactly what the description says it does, nothing more and nothing less.
Crippleware - This is nothing more than a crippled, nearly useless type of app that Apple used to bundle for free before they, too, crippled Network Utility. It's adware for an up-sell version. Deleting it.

broke-ware - only shows first 6 devices does not say in title it is demo version only and pay version is $29.99. way too much for a basic utility many free versions available for windows from solid sources… no thanks
Too restricted - This is only a demo app and is practically worthless. If I could give it negative stars I would. The full version costs about 10 times what it should. I’ll be uninstalling. I have the iOS version, IP Network Scanner Lite and while it is not so sophisticated as the full iOS version it is much better than this demo and the cost is minimal. The full version on iOS costs $19.99 which I consider far too much. That is the same costs as Scrivener for iOS which is a far more useful program. However, there is a version, IP Scanner Home, for the Mac which is only $4.99 and it supports up to 22 devices. As I have 21 it woks well for me.
