iNet - explore your network!
Find out about security risks and keep your network under control. This easy to use App outlines a computer network even to the unexperienced user. Is somebody using your network without your knowledge? Which devices are currently online? Which access ports are open? Which services are offered? What is the IP of your router? Wake sleeping devices remotely. Add own icons to found devices ...
iNet provides you with information about networks and devices your Mac is connected to. Its very easy and user friendly design even allows the unexperienced user to get a profound and understandable overview of a network, the running services and the Wi-Fi quality.
In the current version the following functions are available:
• Network Scanner
• Bonjour Browser
• Portscan for standard ports
• Airport Monitor*
• Wake on Lan
• Help section
We did our best to develop a solution that makes network observing as simple as possible. Wether you are a network expert or a common user - iNet provides the information you need to find out what's going on in your network.
• See all devices that are online and connected to a network, along with vendor, IP and MAC addresses
• Assign your own names and icons or choose from the provided icons for easier identifying a device in the scan list. Most Mac devices are displayed with their original icon.
• Set scan range and interface to scan
• Export scan results in csv format
• Connect to devices via different protocols
• Detect all running Bonjour services realtime
• Detect running services on a discrete device
• Detailed information about a service
• Choose the active Bonjour domain for observing
* • Attention for users of the latest 2013 Airport edition with 802.11ac: Because SNMP support has been disabled iNet cannot retrieve the usage statistics and wifi strength any more with these models. All other features of iNet are working properly. The following Airport monitoring features can only be used with models prior to the 802.11ac:
• See the current condition of Apple Airport base stations like Airport express or Time Capsule
• Monitor network traffic on Airport devices
• Find detailed information about your Airport base stations like MAC address, IP's, used channels and so on
• See the connection quality of the connected wifi clients in realtime
Wake on Lan:
• Wake devices remotely in your local network or via internet
• Put devices remotely to sleep, shutdown or restart (Macintosh only)
• Add devices to favorites
• Send commands via ssh to devices
• Minimal system required for WOL: OS X 10.7
• Extensive help section
• Dictionary of used terms
We will add modules in the future like traceroute and more. iNet is also available for iPhone and for iPad.
[Added] Display of external IP in network overview

Indepensible for the home network admin! - I use this application during times of any network trouble or change. It's great! What I like: - Let's you see all wireless (and wired) items by network - Automatically adds an icon for each item, and it's correct most of the time - Let's you change/customize the icon for each item. This aid in quickly finding the networked item you need. - Provides the MAC address for each item, if provided by item that's networked - Let's you scan the entire network, or just a section of IP addresses - Let's you quickly see what IP's are available when you want to assign a static IP for an item - Has right-click functionality so that you can connect to the item via: AFP, SMB, FTP, … , HTTP - Let's you monitor network traffic by WAN and LAN - Let's you launch Airport Utility from within the app The above is only a subset of the functionality. You could achieve the necessities above with Airport Utility (plus other, specialized apps), but here it is all in one app! You won't regret this purchase!
Disappointing Functionality and Organization - BACKGROUND: I have purchased the iPod, iPad, and now the Mac version of this software. I run a network with 6 subnets, 5 wireless access points, and 3 servers running linux. PRO’s: * It’s really handy to be able to scan another subnet from my workstation instead of running over to the access point with my iPod. * It keeps machines information cached so the historical data from previous scans can be reviewed. * The Bonjour scanner is useful for discovering services on the net and is well organized. CON’s: * This app lacks a port scan feature and fails to detect MAC addresses like it should. * All information about a specific device is not accesible through the detail listing for that device. For example: If I perform a scan and click on a device with the IP 172.16.12.154, the software will list the IP address, Host visibility, and online status. To view a list of Bonjour services for that device, the user must change to another screen and sift through another list of hosts to find that information. The device cannot be ping’d or a port scan performed by the user. * The software appears to get its information from the server instead of the devices themselves. I had some machines come up on a scan that haven’t been connected to the net a year before I bought the app. These machines did, however, have entries in the DHCP & DNS servers. * This app lacks the functionality and is organized very differently from it's iOS versions.

Used to Be Super Handy- Now Non-Functional - This app used to be just super handy, but now (OS v10.13.2) it just hangs and doesn't work. Poking around the forums, etc. to try to see what's up, it just looks like it's a widespread problem. I'm not sure if the company is not maintaining it or what, but I would caution against buying it until you start seeing more recent reviews that contradict this one.
Super useful app, but a memory leak? - I still use this app so often and it works very well, and it works quickly. However, the other day I left it opened and forgot about it and closed my mac, by the time I opened my mac (maxed out late 2013 15' mbp) I had a warning message from Mac OS which I hadn’t seen since the OS 9 days telling me my computer was out of memory. I checked activity monitor and iNet had managed to use a startling near 64 Gigabytes of memory (I’m guessing compressiong and swap space allowed for this one). So please check this out BananaGlue.
