Angry IP Scanner


Angry IP scanner is a great bit of software that allows you to ping an specified IP range quickly. It will graphically represent a list of dead / alive hosts on the subnet.

The developers “” describe it like so:

Angry IP scanner is a very fast IP address and port scanner.

It can scan IP addresses in any range as well as any their ports. It is cross-platform and lightweight. Not requiring any installations, it can be freely copied and used anywhere.

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.

It also has additional features, like NetBIOS information (computer name, workgroup name, and currently logged in Windows user), favorite IP address ranges, web server detection, customizable openers, etc.

Scanning results can be saved to CSV, TXT, XML or IP-Port list files. With help of plugins, Angry IP Scanner can gather any information about scanned IPs. Anybody who can write Java code is able to write plugins and extend functionality of Angry IP Scanner.

In order to increase scanning speed, it uses multithreaded approach: a separate scanning thread is created for each scanned IP address. The full source code is available, see Download page.”

How to

Click on the icon

Put in the range you want to scan and hit start:


Here are the results:


Advanced features

web server detection:

Go to Tools>Fetchers

Move Web Detect fetcher into the left hand column

When click start again, any web servers detected in the subnet will appear in a new column. It should detect most web servers such as IIS etc. But I have noticed that it does not catch them all.

open results in web browser / FTP:

Another feature is opening a result in a web browser or FTP client. To do that open a interface  right click on a device and choose the appropriate feature.

Some anti-virus’s see this as a hacking tool. So be mindful that your anti-virus may kill the program. have an FAQ section that you may find handy.

Enjoy this tool responsibly. It is not intended for use on networks which you don’t own / not responsible for.
