In this day and age, surfing the Net is a process that is both anonymous and easily traceable. You are tied to your IP address, you use ports and leave numerous traces of your activity on the Internet. So does everyone else, but tracking them down is not the only use of IP and Net coordinates. It can help establish better connection, re-adjust your settings, optimize access, etc. The only thing making these things difficult is the technical side of the process and the settings themselves. Here, Angry IP Scanner can help.

Angry IP scanner does exactly what the name says: scans IP addresses and their ports. It's easy to use and available on all major platforms, since the program itself is a cross-platform application. IP scanning covers a great range, and the program's functionality can easily be extended by using various available plugins. The basic operation is like this: Angry IP Scanner pings an IP address and checks its ''alive'' status, then it can resolve host-name, determines the MAC address, scans ports, etc. Again, more detailed and varied info can be gathered if you install appropriate plugins.

The data collected by the program can be saved in a variety of file formats, such as CSV, TXT, XML, etc. According to the developer, Angry IP Scanner has additional features like NetBIOS information gathering, favorite IP address ranges scan, web server detection, customizable openers, etc. Flexible settings allow users to increase scanning speed by assigning processes to IP addresses.

All in all, the program is quite nice when it comes to functionality. It was developed for IP scanning, and it does it well, providing useful additional features that make your life easier. That's probably all a user can ask. Angry IP Scanner is stable, its installation is fast, and the program doesn't take up much of your system's resources. All you need is the desire to use it.
