Network Scan

The network scan feature is available via both the Enumeration Wizard, the shortcut items within the Network Ribbon group, and the Network Browser pane pop-up menu. Network scan is an automated process of searching your entire network for available remote Machines to be later processed by Remote Shutdown. The scan is performed in accordance with the specified Enumeration Options.

The Scan Network button from the Network Ribbon group should be used to scan the entire network for Machines and add them to the Network Browser for further processing.

The network scan pane is used to configure the enumeration process to be executed. Here you can specify if you wish to search for Machines available in the entire network or just in particular Groups. Pic 1 If you want to scan only specific Groups, they should be checked within the Groups list. The Refresh Groups button should be used to synchronize the Groups list displayed with current network state.
