    "There is better software for free"

    February 21, 2011  |   By jimcobber

    Pros

    Does automatic scan of your networks, alerts for changes.

    Cons

    This product is basically End Of Life, due to their Orion product. But they continue to sell this, for some reason. don't buy it.

    Summary

    When I first bought this software it showed great promise. Solarwinds bought this from Neon and develpment has essentially stopped. They are not fixing bugs, nor providing updates. But they will gladly send you a bill for "maintenance". When I paid the last maintenance I did it on the promise they would provide an update. They even wasted my time coming up with a requested feature list. They lied. At this point their client-side software (the only thing that makes this worth purchasing) does not work with Win 7 and they can't/won't say if or when it will come out. You can get an open source product, "HeyDude" that does more for free.

    I am the Product Manager at SolarWinds for LANsurveyor and I can absolutely say this product has not been EOL'd. In fact we put out a release back in October of 2010 and currently have another new release in a release candidate stage. If you are interested I am more than happy to discuss with you offline further on any outstanding issues you may have. For the 10.3 release we did last year, you can find the release notes here - http://www.solarwinds.com/support/lansurveyor/docs/ReleaseNotes/releaseNotes.htm
