Why Install LANsurveyor
In addition to the new features available with this release, LANsurveyor provides the following network mapping and monitoring features:
Enabling LANsurveyor Responder Clients
LANsurveyor Responder Clients are provided with your licensed copy of LANsurveyor 10.4, so you do not need to download any additional software. LANsurveyor Responder Client licenses must be purchased separately from your LANsurveyor 10.4 license, but you do not need to download any additional software. Please contact email@example.com to purchase a license if you do not already have one. The following procedure enables your licensed LANsurveyor Responder Clients.
To enable new or existing LANsurveyor Responder Clients:
See Install Responder Clients in the SolarWinds LANsurveyor Administrator Guide for information about installing LANsurveyor Responder Clients.
Updating Maps in LANsurveyor
LANsurveyor allows you to maintain continuously updated maps of your network. With the Continuous Scan feature, you can configure LANsurveyor to continuously update the status of devices on your network map. See Continuous Scan Intrusion Detection in the SolarWinds LANsurveyor Administrator Guide for details.
Note: The Rescan Map command (Tools > Rescan Map) does not perform the same function as the Continuous Scan feature in LANsurveyor. The Rescan Map function simply scans your network again, using your original settings, so new discovery data is not continuously updated, as it is with the Continuous Scan feature. See Rescan a Map in the SolarWinds LANsurveyor Administrator Guide for details.
Configuring LANsurveyor for Windows Vista/7/2008
The Windows Vista/7/2008 firewall blocks ICMP ping replies by default, preventing LANsurveyor from performing network discovery using ping. To correct the situation, either adminstratively turn off the Vista/7/2008 firewall or add a rule permitting ping replies through the firewall. See Configure LANsurveyor for Windows Vista/7/2008 in the SolarWinds LANsurveyor Administrator Guide for the procedure to add the ping rule.
