Editors' Review

We'd bet you know exactly how many doors and windows there are in your home, and whether each is properly secured. How about your Windows PC? It has doors and (small-w) windows too: they're called ports, and they're how the world gains access to your computer, your data, and your privacy. So, do you know how many ports your computer has, and where they are, and their status? Famatech's Advanced Port Scanner is a free tool that can help you answer those critical questions. It can scan all your ports or just those in ranges you define, and not just on your main PC but on all your networked computers. Advanced Port Scanner is easy enough for novices, thanks in part to a friendly Scan Wizard. We ran it in 64-bit Windows 7 SP1.

Advanced Port Scanner's installer created and even opened a Start Menu folder for the program, yet the folder was empty. However, we found the executable file and program data in Advanced Port Scanner's Program Files folder, along with its Compiled HTML Help file. We were able to open the Help file from the menu bar, but some users running 64-bit Windows systems may have trouble opening it due to a known issue with CHM files created for 32-bit Windows. The program's simple interface offers a default ports list as well as the ability to select IP and port ranges.

We clicked File and selected Advanced Port Scanner's Scan Wizard, which not only scans for open ports but can also identify the PCs on your LAN and whether any of them have open ports, too. This easy-to-use tool asked us for information such as our machine's speed and whether we planned to keep working during the scan. You can scan all your system's ports or just the standard ones. Scans can take time, so take yours, too. A tree view displayed all the IP addresses and open and closed ports for each PC on our LAN. Advanced Port Scanner's results can help you secure your PC and LAN.

    "Didn't work... just crashed when I tried"

    February 19, 2014   |   By djdjohnson

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    It's hard to give any pros when I couldn't get the software to work at all.

    Cons

    Tried running multiple scans, and it crashed every time I tried. I never got it to scan anything at all.

    Summary

    Can't say whether it is incompatible with Windows 7, or what the deal is, but I couldn't make this software do anything. It would come up, I'd put in a port range to scan, and it would immediately crash after trying to start the scan. Not exactly easy to use either.

    "Don't bother"

    May 30, 2013   |   By azevedob

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    It's free to download

    Cons

    Doesn't work -- at all.

    Summary

    Tried to use it on my Windows 7 computer and it wouldn't locate a single device on my network. I then proceeded to download Advanced IP Scanner, which worked perfectly. Don't waste your time with this software.

    "Highly Unstable and Unsupported by Developer"

    November 14, 2011

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    If it worked, it would be a great app

    Cons

    It doesn't work (on any computer Vista x86/x64 or 7 x86/x64)

    Summary

    I have tried this on 4 different machines and it hasn't worked yet. The scanner crashes part of the way into the scan.

    "Constantly crashes"

    December 15, 2010   |   By speedy231278

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    When it works, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    Cons

    Constantly crashes. Usually if you try a second scan of a full subnet. Often before you get the results of the first!

    Summary

    If it didn't crash nine times out of ten, it would be great!

    "Does job reasonably well"

    November 29, 2010   |   By kieransharp

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    Small footprint, simple interface, easy to configure

    Cons

    Interface is a bit clunky, e.g. tab stops not well laid out. Also sometimes results were not consistent on consecutive runs, or with different port ranges set (it missed some open ports sometimes).

    Summary

    Not bad but I prefer using nmap now which seems to be rock solid

    "Works well, but crashes"

    March 30, 2010   |   By nicknamecake

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    For port ranges in the thousands, it works fine and works well

    Cons

    When I tried to scan the full range (0-65535) it kept on crashing. I need to find another program that doesn't crash on me (Win 7 Pro, x32, no memory or processor overload)

    Summary

    Free, simple interface, works well. Get it!

    "I didn't like it"

    March 22, 2010   |   By xr280xr

    Version: Advanced Port Scanner 1.3

    Pros

    Scanned some ports.

    Cons

    Couldn't get it to scan more than 67 default ports. It seemed to ignore my port ranges.

    Summary



    Updated on Mar 22, 2010

    This one's a lot better than some of the others if only it's options worked. It's fast and has a decent UI.
