You can specify a single IP address or an IP address range for inclusion or exclusion. This IP information is used for device discovery and to collect device usage and status information.

You can select the 'Use local network range' checkbox. The Device Scout will scan only the local subnet based upon the IP address and subnet mask of the server on which the Device Scout is running.


NOTE: If you provide only exclusions, no device discovery will occur.

Importing IP Addresses/Ranges from a File

You can also import IP addresses from a simple text file. The file may contain IP addresses/ranges to include and/or exclude. Each IP address should be a single line item in the file. An IP address range should consist of a single line item with two IP addresses separated by a hyphen. To exclude an IP address/range, enclose the excluded item in parentheses.Below is a CSV file showing an included IP scan range, included IP Address, and excluded IP scan range (from top to bottom):


After a successful import, the IP addresses or ranges appear in the List of IP Ranges box.
