In this article, we will see a useful tool that allows network administrators or any simple user of Linux-based systems to analyze and scan network machines. The tool is called Angry IP Scanner which is a TCP/IP network scanner that allows users to easily scan IP addresses within any range of your choice via a user-friendly interface.

Once Angry IP Scanner detects an active IP address, it will then resolve its MAC address, hostname, and port. The gathered data can be then saved as TXT, CSV, XML or IP-Port list files. For more information about Angry IP Scanner, go here.
