How To Find all Linux Computers on Network | Linux Network Scanner


Hi and welcome to Lansweeper’s scanning tutorials. Lansweeper’s unique scanning algorithm automatically
discovers IT networks of all sizes using a wide range of network protocols. In this video, we will focus on the discovery
of Linux and Unix computers. Scanned Linux data includes operating system,
model, memory, processor, disk partition information, network interfaces, installed software and
more. In order for Lansweeper to scan a Linux or
Unix computer, you need to set up a user with sudo rights. SSH must be enabled on the Linux computer
to get the most detailed information. In the Lansweeper Web Console, go to the Scanning
Target section and hit the Add Scanning Target button to submit your Linux computer’s IP
range. Next, under Scanning Credentials, submit
your SSH username and password or use a SSH certificate/key. You can rest assured that these username and
password combinations are always encrypted and stored locally. Finally, you just need to map these credentials
to the IP Range you previously created. Once everything is set up correctly, Lansweeper
is ready to scan your Linux and Unix computers and detailed information is just a click away.
