Dipiscan
A speedy and versatile network scanner

Dipiscan is a portable network scanner, easy to use but with a pile of features.

We launched the program and it immediately set itself up with an appropriate IP address range. We clicked "Analyze" and within 6 seconds it had scanned everything, displaying key details on every device that responded: reply time, NetBIOS name, DNS name, domain and user, MAC address, adapter manufacturer, and maybe the operating system, device description, available shares and more.

Selecting and right-clicking any or all of the devices gives options to copy some or all of the report information to the clipboard.

There are further right-click options to open an IP in Explorer, use Wake-On-Lan to wake it up, or control and access the computer in various ways (sleep or restart it, send a message, access it with Remote Desktop).

Dipiscan can search for systems by IP or DNS names, run traceroute operations, or save specific systems to a "Followed Machine" tabs for speedy access later.

The highlight of the program is probably its configuration dialog. Experts can configure how the system operates in extremely fine detail, and the right-click menu may be extended with custom commands.

Verdict:

Dipiscan is a fast and capable network scanner, but if you're already using something like Angry IP Scanner, that might not be enough to win you over.

What's more interesting is the program's configurability. This isn't just about number of pings, delays and timeouts, you can also define how almost every detail is retrieved: NetBIOS, WMI, NBTStat, ARP, API and more. The program can use custom methods to access the internet, other systems and ActiveDirectory, choose exactly which fields to include in the report, and even add new ones.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
