Angry IP Scanner 3.x

#1 Post by Ameri-CAIN » Thu Jan 17, 2008 2:05 pm

Database Listing for 2.x: http://portablefreeware.com/?id=268

Version 3.x is still in beta, but looks good so far. Many of you may be using Version 2.x still.

Angry IP Scanner is a very popular tool for network monitoring. It is being used by network administrators all over the world. It is featured in many magazine articles and other publications on security.

The program is very lightweight and unobtrusive (a user may just download and run it - no installation is needed). The full source code is available under the GPL license for anyone to review - there are no viruses or trojans.

Anti-virus software vendors (currently Symantec and McAfee), have the program in their database considered as a malware ('hacktool', 'potentionally unwanted program', etc). When using this in a portable fashion, you must make sure to exclude this program from virus scanning, or it will be removed. I am not sure if the latest 3.x executable is flagged as of yet.

Thank you for the very well made post (I like those complete posts!)

At the moment the 3.x releases are on a beta stage... so it is better to wait until they reach the stable level...

hank you very much for the news!
I often ask myself: "What have I to ask myself?"...

@__philippe: Because you have more than 50 posts, you can edit the entry yourself. :) I'm not against updating the entry to version 3.2.

Can you uniextract that?

I'm tempted in the mean time to link to the archive.org version until the 3.x series can be tested for portability. Any preference?

Angry IP Scanner V2.21 legacy version (windows only) creates a few registry entries when some options are selected;
however, as I noted in the comments section, there is a neat option to delete those registry entries upon user's request.

BTW, v2.21 legacy version is a UPX-packed executable, no need to uniextract, unless one wants to perform some kind of forensic analysis...;-)

Anyway, for the inquisitive mind, here are the gory details inside:

Ahem, thanks for the new responsibility...;-)

Anyway, I just fixed the pointers to Angry IP Scanner v2.21 legacy version (windows only), and put up a note about reversibility of created Registry entries.

I'll leave to better qualified hands the judgment about including or not the new multi-platform Version 3.x

Be warned that (unlike legacy version v221) this new-fangled multi-platform version, while quite appealing and streamlined compared to the old one,
writes a load of \JavaSoft\Prefs settings entries to the Registry, with no user-friendly way to delete them, save plain manual Registry editing.

The main multi-platform version does not need installing at all.
Just download:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ipscan/ ... e/download (win32)
or
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ipscan/ ... e/download (win64)

and launch the appropriate *.exe

There is also an optional installer version (V3.2.1) available, with, presumably, a matching un-installer, but I believe that's a bit off limits to PFC's remit ?

Just in case you want to keep Angry IP Scanner v2.2.1 configuration options, the yaP launcher config file I'm using is at http://pastebin.com/n593k4KW...

This is getting ridiculous: it's a freaking IP scanner! Of course AV programs will detect it as a riskware! There's no way you're a programmer!

Did you notice that the AVs classify Angry IP Scanner as a PUP (Possibly Unwanted Program), unwanted application, tool and riskware? Some of these even explicitly say "this application is Angry IP Scanner". Well, it's supposed to be Angry IP Scanner! That's what the website is distributing!

The AVs detect PUPs because, if you are a normal user (say, one who only pays bills and visits Facebook with his/her computer), there should not be a PUP on your computer. If there is, the user should know about it. For example, an actual worm might have installed the PUP.

However, if you are a power user and have use for the PUP, you don't need to be afraid of the detection. You know that you have a PUP on your computer and the AV merely confirms it.

@SYSTEM: rather nicely put, terse and to the point. Should probably be referenced by any similar programs. :!:
