PortScan
Quickly find out more about the devices connected to your network

PortScan is a simple tool which can quickly scan your system (or just a defined IP address range) to reveal any connected network devices.

The program is portable, and very easy to use. Just launch it, choose your scan type - ports, devices and so on - and any necessary parameters, like starting and ending IP addresses. Or just click "Scan" and wait for the report.

The report is surprisingly detailed. For any connected PCs, say, you'll see their IP address, network and host name, open ports and network shares, amongst other information. And when scanning for devices, PortScan uses a variety of techniques to retrieve all kinds of related information. It gave us the make and model of our router, for instance; its home page URL, MAC address, IP address, UPnP details and a whole lot more.

Elsewhere, a Ping tab also allows you to ping particular IP addresses or host names, and see basic statistics on the results.

And there's even a Speed Test tab which uses multiple servers to figure out your internet connection's upload and download speed.

That's not bad at all for a portable program under 600KB in size, then. And if you're ever involved in any kind of network diagnostics or troubleshooting then there's a good chance PortScan will be able to help.

Version: 1.53 · New: MySQL and MongoDB support added

Verdict:

An easy to use, lightweight network scanner which returns a host of useful information

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview

    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
