IDG Contributor Network: How to use Scany, a network scanner for the iPad and iPhone
Network scanning on iOS
Before plunging in, I’ll be first to admit that I don’t normally associate iOS with network scanning or security tools. In the past, I’ve run network scanner apps primarily on Linux or Mac OS X, using tools such as nmap, nessus, even a discontinued tool known as Security Administrator Tool for Analyzing Networks (SATAN) many moons ago. For users of Windows, Wireshark is probably one of the more popular tools used to scan networks.
