Use host name for "name"

Is there a way to use the host name, not the netbios name, for the "name" column?

host name as in nslookup results.

what is the network message that fills in device "name"?

Can anyone advise me what network message is used to obtain the information from a device that is then displayed in the "name" column?
I have been experimenting with Arduino running mDNS (Bonjour) and this is not it, the arduino just has it's IP address filled in as "name". Other devices on my network present an actual name in this colum (e.g. WDTVLIVEHUB) and I've tried to use Wireshark to capture the message(s) that send this data but there is such a flood of messages it's hard to work through them.
Suffice to say it's not Ping and it's not mDNS(Bonjour) so any advice would be gratefully received.

Choising Interface


A great improvement would be to let the user to chose the network interface used to scan.

For exemple, I have wired and wireless networks cards (on the same IP C class) and I want to scan the network using only the wireless Interface.

Hope it could be added.

Advanced IP Scanner - Option to Never Cache?


I'd like to suggest a feature to never save or cache any data. I am on different networks for system configuration and troubleshooting daily. One thing that I have to do prior to a scan nearly every time is delete stored data in Options. Otherwise, scanner will show offline hosts from scans on different networks.

I'd much prefer it to never cache and for it to just scan fresh every time, even between repeat scans.

Crashes on start after update to 2.5.4594.1

I got a prompt to update and so I did. Now the app crashes.

Event viewer shows:
Windows cannot access the file  for one of the following reasons: there is a problem with the network connection, the disk that the file is stored on, or the storage drivers installed on this computer; or the disk is missing. Windows closed the program Advanced IP Scanner because of this error.

Crash shows:
Faulting application name: advanced_ip_scanner.exe, version: 2.5.4594.1, time stamp: 0x62679bd2
Faulting module name: Qt5Gui.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x5e25e3d0
Exception code: 0xc000001d

I've uninstalled, removed folder in programdata and reg keys in HKCU and same.

Any ideas?

Suggestion for a simple addition

SUGGESTION:  What would be convenient for me, and I think for others, would be a column for "last seen date", to show when the last time a "dead" node logged in.  It might help with tracking down unrecognized nodes.  I think it would be a simple task to add this feature.   Please consider.
