Host Name for JetDirect devices

  • Carlos

    Angry IP Scanner fails to recognize hostname for JetDirect devices,
    although there is a hostname configured in the jetDirect.
    Is it needed a plugin to recognize this name ?
    has anyone found the same problem ?

    Thanks in advance

      OK, thanks for your answer.
      Most jetdirects doesn't have DNS addresses configured, and cannot register themselves to the DNSs.
      Additional corporate DNS only allow IP-name registration for computer devices known to the Active Directory (as far as I know).
      I run on a multinational, and I manage my country, and there are things I cannot change.

      Now I'm targeting another problem.
      New WinXP computers that I receive for my country doesn't have Messenger service enabled,
      so the logged user_name + <03h> is not registered as Netbios name,
      and the IP scanner fails to recognize the user logged in the computer.

      I don't know any other way to get the logged on user, but if you know one,
      I'm willing to write a plugging that implements it.
      Best regards

      Angry IP Scanner displays hostnames returned by the local nameserver on your network (using a reverse DNS lookup).

      Do you know if these devices do publish their hostnames to a nameserver? Or probably they just use the names internally?
