Publisher's Description of Angry IP Scanner

" A very fast IP address and port scanner. "
- From Anton Keks

Angry IP Scanner (or simply ipscan) is an open-source and cross-platform network scanner designed to be fast and simple to use. It scans IP addresses and ports as well as has many other features.

It is widely used by network administrators and just curious users around the world, including large and small enterprises, banks, and government agencies.

It runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, possibly supporting other platforms as well.

It can scan IP addresses in any range as well as any their ports. It is cross-platform and lightweight. Not requiring any installations, it can be freely copied and used anywhere.

Angry IP scanner simply pings each IP address to check if it's alive, then optionally it is resolving its hostname, determines the MAC address, scans ports, etc. The amount of gathered data about each host can be extended with plugins.

It also has additional features, like NetBIOS information (computer name, workgroup name, and currently logged in Windows user), favorite IP address ranges, web server detection, customizable openers, etc.

Scanning results can be saved to CSV, TXT, XML or IP-Port list files. With help of plugins, Angry IP Scanner can gather any information about scanned IPs. Anybody who can write Java code is able to write plugins and extend functionality of Angry IP Scanner.

In order to increase scanning speed, it uses multithreaded approach: a separate scanning thread is created for each scanned IP address.

Important:
There are no trojans or viruses in Angry IP Scanner's ipscan.exe. Review the source code if you wish to check yourself.

Some antivirus software vendors (McAfee, Symantec, and some others) have started recently identifying Angry IP Scanner as 'potentially unwanted program' or risky 'hacktool'. Now, their programs often delete Angry IP Scanner from the disk during virus scanning.

The reason behind this is the will to bloat 'virus databases' and show unreal high number of detected 'viruses' in order to impress their customers. So they include everything they can find on the Internet, including many security tools, such as Angry IP Scanner.

Note that the cross-platform incarnation of Angry IP Scanner (version 3.x) is not being detected.
