Scanning your network in CCleaner Network

CCleaner Network has three options you can use for scanning a network for endpoints. By default, all three are enabled:

  • Microsoft NetBIOS service - this method uses NetBIOS to locate and query hosts. You can find out more here.
  • Piriform Agent service - once you have deployed Endpoint Agents, this method will send a query to them when it scans the Network
  • Active Directory service - this method uses Active Directory (if supported by the network) to locate and query hosts. You can find out more here.

To modify which scan types CCleaner Network uses

  1. In the Network Tree, select the network name.
  2. Select Network > Options.
  3. The network scanning methods appear at the bottom of the Network tab on the Options dialog box. Make your changes, and then select OK.

To scan your network

  1. In the Network Tree, right-click the network name.
  2. Select Scan for Hosts.

Specifying a range of IP addresses to scan:

However, if you only want to scan a section of your network, you can specify a range of IPs to scan.

  1. In the Network Tree, select the network name.
  2. Select Network > Advanced Host Detection.
  3. Enter the range you wish to scan, and then select OK.

  4. Once the scan is complete, select one or more of the found Endpoints (or select the check box next to Host name to select them all).
  5. Optionally, choose a group from the Add to Group drop-down box to add the Endpoints to that group.
  6. Optionally, type default credentials into the User name and Password boxes.
  7. Select Add Hosts.

Changing addressing methods for Network scanning:

By default, CCleaner Network addresses endpoints by their host name.

If you wish to use IP address addressing instead (for example, if you do not use DHCP), you can easily change this in the CCleaner Network Options.

  1. In the Network Tree, select the network name.
  2. Select Network > Options.
  3. The Default address method drop-down box appears at the bottom of the Network tab on the Options dialog box.
  4. Select Host Name or IP address, and then select OK.
