Scanning for netPI IP address - IP scanner tool helps - Armin@netPI - November-5th-2019

A fresh netPI is configured to receive its IP address through a DHCP server.

netPI's Web-GUI can be opened using its IP address then or using its Hostname instead for an easy identification. The netPI default Hostname is printed on the housing label.

Sometimes you may not have visual access to the netPI label and struggle which IP address your netPI has received through the DHCP server.

For adressing this topic the Windows tool "Avanced IP Scanner" found on the internet is good for: https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/. The site offers a free download.

Enter the range of IP addresses you wanna scan e.g. 192.168.0.1-192.168.0.254 and you will get a list of found network devices, their names and their IP addresses.

Finding a netPI on your network can't be easier.
