SoftPerfect Network Scanner is mainly intended for network administrators, who need to manage resources and detect such vulnerabilities as hidden and writable shared folders within the local area network. The program works by pinging networked machines and scanning ports and supports various technologies to do this, including WMI, SNMP, HTTP, SSH and PowerShell. Luckily, it can successfully find not only internal but also external IP addresses.

The program has a very straightforward interface, which has the technical look characterizing software of this type. Some of the features, however, can only be found by exploring its menu. To start scanning the network, you should first provide the desired IP range. It only takes a moment for the program to discover the connected resources. These are shown as threads, and you can expand a node (IP number) to view the resources it contains. Likewise, it is possible to filter the results. For each machine, it is possible to know its IP and Mac addresses as well as logged users. It is also great that you can perform various operations directly from the program window. These include opening computers, sending messages and shutting off a remote machine. Finally, the program can export the results to various formats, such as HTML, XML, JSON, CSV, and TXT.

All in all, SoftPerfect Network Scanner is a great tool in the hands of network administrators. It works fast and stably without consuming too many resources and endangering your connectivity. The program can even run portably from an external drive. The product is available under various types of licenses, depending on the intended use (home or business) and the number of computers you want to run it from (single, up to 10, site and worldwide).
