Last weekend I pulled out an old utility that I have used for years.
I wanted to check on my Raspberry PI that I used in this project:
What did I need to check? I forgot the IP address 🙁
Just wanted to see if the thing was still surviving outside in subzero temperatures.
I pulled out this old utility, called the Angry IP Scanner.
It has my favorite qualities. It consists of 1 exe, and the exe itself is less than 150KB
It does one job, and one job well – scanning your network for live machines.
Since it pre-dates Vista you will need to make sure you right click on it to run it as an administrator.
There is a newer version written in Java, but that makes it difficult to run from a USB flash drive.
Here is the download link:
You can also download the latest version from the Angry IP Scanner website:
Oh, by the way – that Raspberry PI was still ticking. Uptime of 6 Months!
