NetResView

CNET Editors' review

NirSoft's NetResView lists all the resources on your Windows-based home or small-business network in a single display, including all computers, disk drives, and printers. It's freeware, too, which puts its capabilities in reach of those who usually need it most. It doesn't give you the ability to configure or alter your LAN or do the other things big-box networking programs can do (for a hefty price). It just centralizes information about your network resources, including admin and hidden shares. Its mission is simple but important, and it meets the challenge.

This standalone utility runs as soon as you extract and click the ZIP program file, so it's totally portable and can be run on any machine. At just over 42KB, it's small enough to fit on virtually any device or storage medium, too. The program opens with a compact, Windows-style dialog that displays all attached network resources, their types, work group or domain, attributes, paths, and more in a customizable list view. Advanced options include the ability to retrieve IP addresses (the default selection) and MAC addresses (by clicking a chec kbox) and set timeout values. Right-clicking any entry calls up a full menu, including the ability to run an HTML report just on selected items. We tried the grid view, which seems to help with large listings; we like the inclusion of a column autosizing option, too. Configuring the interface and tool options and generating reports are about all users need to worry about with this tool.

Using the built-in Windows tools to keep track of your LAN usually means going to each machine, one by one, or buying enterprise-class network software for enterprise-class prices. NetResView collects all the information you need in one place, and it's free.

    "NetResView 1.26"

    June 8, 2013  |   By johnniedoo

    Version: NetResView 1.26

    Pros

    small and installs easily

    Cons

    does not work at all anymore. I had an earlier version which was able to identify some resources on the computer i had it on. did not do well with my extensive but simple home This new and improved version now finds 0. no matter how i work with the advanced options , nothing at all. there is nothing to do to adjust it either. one of the downsides of these 'simple' little products.

    Summary

    I do not know what happened to this little utility over the past year or so. granted, it is freeware, but it used to work, needed a tweak or 2 maybe, but , rather than go forward, it got more complicated and ceased to work at all on my computer /lan. i have a number of things it used to identify and was good to know, some more silent ports and such. now it 'sees' not one thing.
    I have no idea why it degraded for me, had been going along ok, i though for one update, i believe. i have tried to remove and reinstall it but no use. just spins around as if 'loading' and ends with 0 in the bottom status bar. all those options for Mac and IP addresses are just window dressing now.
    I hate to say , but I got what i paid for
