Great IOS apps for Network scanning and Analyzing


Recommended Posts

NetworkToolbox - Network scanning and analyzing by Marcus Roskosch https://appsto.re/us/9wa2M.i


Shits extensive.

I don't pay for apps willy-nilly, this one has not failed to impress.  Heres a list of it's features:


Features of NetworkToolbox

NetworkToolbox main screeen

Scan your local home- or corporate-network within seconds. Explore all connected devices and get a complete picture of your network.

Over 26 individual tools are available to analyze your network, to perform various security checks or even connect to devices on your network.


Network scan

The included Network scanner runs repeated scans to get the most accurate results. To prevent from being detected by Firewalls or IDS (Intrusion detection systems), the scanned addresses are selected randomly.

For the fastest possible speed, scans will be performed in hundreds of concurrent tasks at the same time. This results in the fastest and most reliable scan results compared to any other app.

Devices, found by the Network scanner can be further analyzed by scanning for services using the Portscan tool. Portscans may reveal known and unknown (hidden) services of devices.

All tools are highly integrated. Wherever you want to dig deeper into the results of one tool, a single tap will allow you to open the internal browser, start a telnet or FTPsession, ping the host, get information about a SSL certificate, perform certain security checks and more.

Scan results can also be logged and multiple scans can be compared to each other. This way, it is easy to find out, if devices have been addedremoved or changed between two scans.




If you are not a network expert, don’t worry and don’t be scared. NetworkToolbox makes it easy for you to dig into those networking details.

Several included How-To’s and Guides will show you how easy it is, for instance, to perform an open-port analysis. By this, you will be able to quickly scan your home network to find ports that are unintentionally open to the web. Such ports will often be used by cyber criminals to break into your internal network.

The app also includes Video tutorials, samples and other learning resources.

Each tool also has a comprehensive Help text that explains the purpose of each tool and how to use it.

Last but not least, a Glossary is included that explains terms from A like “Access control” to Z like “Zero day”.



NetworkToolbox also includes a telnet or SSH terminal which allows you to connect to linux devices, routers with telnet interfaces or any other telnet or SSH device.


SHODAN is a search engine that lets you find specific computers (routers, servers, etc.). SHODAN can be seen as a public port scan directory.

Web search engines, such as Google and Bing, are great for finding websites. But what if you’re interested in finding computers running a certain piece of software (such as Apache)? Or if you want to know which version of Microsoft IIS is the most popular? Or you want to see how many anonymous FTP servers there are? Maybe a new vulnerability came out and you want to see how many hosts it could infect? Traditional web search engines don’t let you answer those questions.

SHODAN is fully integrated in NetworkToolbox.

In addition to SHODAN, NetworkToolbox integrates it’s own Device scanning engine called Morpheus. Like SHODAN, Morpheus runs on a distributed network of scanning engines around the world and can be queried from inside NetworkToolbox.



The above just shows a fraction of the possibilities of NetworkToolbox. Below is a list of features. This list may already incomplete because NetworkToolbox is being extended and updated continuously.

Yeah, weak sauce. Thankfully fing kept all the mac addresses in local storage to that if scanning a network already scanned, you can see what they were.

Wow! that's a lot of features but it would not be worth the price without all of them. I would love to one day replace expensive network testers almost completely with the computers we all have in our pockets.
