"Solid program for the price."
Everything about it is a good. Enough features in the pro version to cover all of the basics. Even though not free, the price is very reasonable for the features provided.
No real cons, just some features I would like to see added or improved upon. I would like the scan ip (scanning a range of ips) to run faster. If you are scanning a large subnet the scan can take some time even on a fast system.
I use the program almost everyday. I would like to see some added features. If some host are set to not respond to a ping it will probably not see them; it would be nice to have the program detect layer 2 addresses even if the host does not respond on a layer 3 level. Another item that would be great would be for the program to detect multiple devices on the network that were trying to use the same ip address. I occassionally do network security scanning and have seen instances where someone hacked into a companies network and setup a device with a static address the same as that of a server, thus usually knocking the server offline. I do not know if the program could be designed to do these things, but it would make a great program even better.
