I set out to do a quick comparison between SoftPerfect Network Scanner (Netscan) and AngryIP because AngryIP seems to get more love. I don’t know why. Just spend 5 minutes with SoftPerfect Network Scanner and you will abandon AngryIP in a heartbeat. SoftPerfect Network Scanner is clearly a better application. Its faster, highly configurable and more feature rich than AngryIP. SoftPerfect Network Scanner is a must have for all Sysadmin or Security professionals.
Both are standalone executable for Windows so no installation is required. The scan results below (with defaults enabled) proves the speed test. Netscan is much faster.
