Angry IP Scanner – Fast Network Scanner

Outsmart Malicious Hackers


Angry IP scanner is a very easy to use, fast network scanner – basically a cross-platform IP address and port scanner. It can scan IP addresses in any range as well as any their ports, it’s also very lightweight and doesn’t require any installation, it can be freely copied and used anywhere.

Angry IP Scanner - Fast Network Scanner

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.

How it Works

Angry IP Scanner implements several different methods of detecting alive hosts (pinging).

As a rule, if hosts don’t respond to pings, they are considered dead and therefore not scanned further. This behaviour can be changed in the Preferences dialogue -> Scanning tab. In the same place, you can also select the pinging method:

  • ICMP Echo pinging – This is the same method used by the ping program.
  • ICMP.DLL pinging – This is Windows-only pinging method to compensate for the absence of Raw Sockets.
  • UDP packet pinging – This pinging method is preferred when you don’t have administrative privileges.
  • TCP port probe – This method tries to connect to some TCP port that is unlikely to be filtered (e.g. 80).

Features

    I’ve been using Angry IP for years. It is my go-to Windows GUI scanner. Also one of the few that doesn’t trigger the malware scanners I use at home and in the office.

    I prefer Cain just because of the speed for a basic scan of alive hosts but that can be a real pain to use if you have malware protection running. Especially when it is a work computer and you need to add exclusions and explain why you added it to the head of IT security.

      Yah it’s a solid tool and the portability is great. Not triggering malware alerts is a bonus as most others (especially those with password cracking capabilities) do.
