Network scanner is very useful both for system administrators and general users who are interested in computer security. I use network scanner to scan and find all the IPs and shared files and folders in the LAN. It's not possible to manually scan all the computers in the network. But if you use a software then all things become very easy and handy. In this page, I will tell you a best network scanner which is totally free to use and very helpful for scanning the entire network. The name of the software is SoftPerfect Network Scanner. You can use it as a network scanner, LAN network scanner, network IP scanner, network scanner tool or network scanners.

To download SoftPerfect Network Scanner, click on the following link:

I use several network software for network scanning purposes. Most of the software consumes much memory and CPU. Moreover, one thing is that when I usually run those software my computer becomes hang for a while. Sometimes, it seem to reboot my computer. Among all the network scanning software, SoftPerfect Network Scanner is the best LAN network scanner . It is very useful for all types of users like administrators and all the general users. The program pings computers, scans for listening TCP ports and displays which types of resources are shared on the network (including system and hidden). I like this software for the following purposes:
