[NoOfficialRelease] Angry IP Scanner Portable 2.21 Dev Test 4

Angry IP Scanner is an open-source network scanner designed to be fast and simple to use. It scans IP addresses and ports as well as has many other features.

The program already comes as an exe but it stores settings in the registry. this portable version backs up your settings. there's another thing that this portable version does that's cool. angry ip scanner is detected as a virus by many virus scanners. this portable version detects if the exe is there, and if it has been removed it automatically extracts a .7z file (which is not detected as a virus) with the original angry ip scanner exe into the correct folder.

Changes
Dev Test 2: Replaced ugly old icon with their new beta icon.
Dev Test 3: Small changes to make app fully paf compliant
Dev Test 4: Added a message that appears the first time you run Angry IP Scanner Portable letting the user know that ipscan.exe is not a virus

Angry IP Scanner Portable 2.21 Dev Test 4 756 KB

Tell me about any problems that occur.

Works fine

Angry IpScanner Portable works fine, no problems detected. Folderstructure, Readme-Files and so on seem to be ok, too - good job done. Smile
A nice tool, that was missing in my tools collection to help friends to discover problems in their home-network. I have heard of it before as a Linux tool, but i didn't know, that it is availible for Windows, too. And even not, that it could be made portable *lol* Wink
Nice Work,...

Certainly nice!

Works like a charm! Great pick though, a nice thing to carry with you. Smile

use the one from beta 3,

use the one from beta 3, it's much clearer. Do you know to convert that to an icon with all the proper sizes? If not, I can do it and post back shortly.

Yea

I usually recommend IcoFX. I use GIMP most of the time myself, however, but IcoFX is great.

Feedback

Here's the extremely picky PAFish stuff to change:

  1. In the AppInfo.ini, the PackageVersion is probably something more like 2.21.0.0, I can't seem to find the exact build.
  2. In the AppInfo.ini, the Start should be the AppNamePortable.exe, unless there's a specific reason you have just the program exe.
  3. In the help.html file, one of the homepage links links to ConvertAllPortable. As well, remove the space between the bullets for General Angry IP Scanner Issues.
  4. In the Other\Source\Readme.txt, add your copyright. Also, in that file, only the first directory setup is supported now, not like the other three.
  5. The legal copyright in the source should be 'PortableApps.com and contributers'.
  6. The splash should no longer have a fade in, change the 200 on like 194 to 0

That's all I caught in terms on PAFish stuff, awesome work and good app choice. The 7-Zip idea was fantastic, too.

Great

Just one small note to change before you forget. I missed this before.

In the Readme.txt

-\

Should of course not have spaces in the exe name. Not worth an update right now of course. Blum Just add it before you forget.

Litte Late, But

Everything looked clean on my system. Someone should do a fresh RegShot on their PC before trying to be sure.

That's by the nature of the app. It has similar features to many network hacking tools, this application, however, does not contain a virus and is not intended to be used as a hacking tool.

See here for a description.

yeah many detect it as a virus which is why i set it up the way i did, the only other option is since angry ip scanner v3 is still in beta and it's not tagged as a virus yet; i could use that one. i just wanted to use the stable version

registry

i just looked back at a log file i made before that caught this program using the key HKU\S-1-5-21-2651071009-3632667047-424129808-1005\Software\Angryziber but every time it runs now it uses HKCU\software\Angryziber.

to be sure this program only stores setting in HKCU\software\Angryziber can somebody who has not run this program before run it while monitoring the registry?

Those two locations are identical. that long nasty string of characters is the ID of the Current User so HKU\[nastiness]\ == HKCU\

yes

but the difference is that the nasty version only works on one PC and HKCU works everywhere.

@T

Very true. So T, you would be best leaving it as HKCU as HKU\[nastiness]\ is unique as Simeon said.

I just checked the launcher and everything seems OK there.

Nothing left behind here. Nice Program. I never used it before so I don't really know what I am doing but it works and I will keep playing with it Smile

So here you go.

can't download

I can't download the program, right when I click the link, and tell my browser where to save it, my antivirus alerts me that this file is a virus in the .part file from firefox downloading it.

You need to turn off your AV.

You need to turn off your AV.

Yes, it sounds weird to say that, and I don't recommend it, but by the nature of what the app is and does it looks suspicious to AV programs, it's the nature of the beast.

http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2003-092618-...

Did you read these comments in the thread above:
https://portableapps.com/node/11858#comment-69275

Also you will probably not be able to run it while your AV is active unless you can tell you AV to ignore it, again the nature of the best. That app can be used by bad folks to do bad things. If you don't understand that it is best that you don't use the app unless you are prepared to tell you AV "Look, I know what I'm doing"

If you don't trust the dev, you should not download the app

No Official Release

I'm going to mark this as no official release. Unfortunately, as a port scanning tool, this causes nearly all antivirus and antimalware utilities to alarm. A recent VirusTotal scan shows what I mean. As such, it would be auto-deleted when using most PCs. And simply having it available on our site could be a red flag.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Would it not be possible to to package and have the develop site host it?

Develop site?

Develop site? Just us linking to it for download could trigger one of the overreactionary site scanners. That could be the reason for this, for instance: https://portableapps.com/node/28327

If they develop it could we not have a page that why not linking does indicate it's existence and why we do not host it?
