This easy to use App outlines a computer network even to the unexperienced user.
Which devices are connected to a network? Are they online? Which services do they provide? Does somebody use my wifi network without my knowledge? These and other questions answers iNet fast and simple.
Since 2009 iNet Network Scanner for iPhone constantly got an average user ranking of 4,5 stars. With our regularly updates we could adopt all the great changes and enhancements of the iPhone operating system. We optimized iNet Network Scanner for the capabilities of the iPad.
The user interface and parts of the code base have been rewritten from ground up. User friendly, easy to use, fast, with the proofed reliability of iNet Pro - Network Scanner for iPhone.
We had to remove features that depend on knowing MAC addresses (not possible to detect in iOS 11 currently). As soon as MAC addresses are detectable again we will reactivate the missing features (this restriction does not apply to the Mac release of iNet).
In the current release iNet for iPad offers the following features:
• NETWORK SCAN
- Show all connected devices
- Show vendor (not possible in iOS 11)
- Show history of network (not possible in iOS 11)
- Add note to device (not possible the in 11)
- Show network details
- Connect to device via different protocols
- Ping device / show online status
- Advertised Bonjour services of device
- Portscan of device for standard ports
- Change names and icons in scan list (not possible in iOS 11)
- Send list of scanned devices
• BONJOUR BROWSER
- Show all running services
- Sort by services or hosts
- User understandable names of services
- Connect to device if service is available
• WAKE ON LAN
- Wake devices locally or via internet
- Sleep/shutdown (Mac devices)
- WOL favorites list
• DEVICE INFO
• HELP SECTION
Soon coming updates will include:
• Special Ping section
• Special Portscan section
• and more
iNet shows the devices connected to your local network, e. g. a computer or router, along with their name, IP and vendor. iNet discovers and distinguishes between windows and macintosh computers with different icons. For most Apple Computers the particular computer model can be seen. Find out the name, vendor and IP of the connected devices as well as the number of running Bonjour services on that particular device. A classic portscan on the chosen device can also be performed.
Bonjour, also known as zero-configuration networking, enables automatic discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. The Bonjour-Browser in iNet scans the connected local network for Bonjour services, detecting any hardware that ist connected via the Bonjour protocol (for instance computer, router, printer, …) and any software running Bonjour services, e. g. iTunes or Filemaker.

The outstanding feature of our implementation is that it is very easy to use and simple to setup. For more information see iNet WOL, our stand-alone tool for WOL.
Applications on devices communicate with the outside world through so called TCP ports. iNet detects wether a port is open or closed. For all detected open ports the service using this port is displayed by its real name (if available).
The modularized structure of iNet allows to add more features and scanning methods in the future. We will implement by time more network monitoring tools. iNet for iPad will be updated on a regular basis as before. iNet is also available for Mac computer at the Mac App Store
If you want to know what's going on in your local network - iNet for iPad gives you a profound answer.
[Added] If you have saved scans before the iOS 11 release, you can now load them with all the information of these scans (MAC addresses, notes, changed names, icons).
Access the old scans by tapping in the network scanner view on the three horizontal bars in the top right corner of the screen.
This may be helpful for some of you to find out especially the MAC addresses of your network ...
