With the help of NetworkConnectLog you can find out all computers that connect and disconnect from your network. This small utility is portable and comes packed with an exporting function for generated information.
Because installation is not required, you can drop the executable file in a custom directory on the disk and run it directly.
Another option is to save a copy of NetworkConnectLog on a pen drive or other removable storage unit, and run it directly on any computer without installing anything else.
Portable apps do not create new entries in the Windows registry or Start menu, leaving the HDD clean after removal.
The interface is as intuitive as it gets. A list is immediately filled with IP addresses at startup, along with the event time and type, computer name, work group, MAC address, and network adapter company.
By selecting one, more or all entries from the list you can export their corresponding information to TXT, HTML, XML or CSV format. If there are too many entries, a search function comes to your aid to locate specific PCs.
As far as viewing options are concerned, the layout is customizable in terms of grid lines, tool tips and column size. Furthermore, you can change the MAC address format, put an icon in the system tray, show time in GMT, as well as hide scanned IP addresses. In matter of scan settings, you can set up an IP address range.
NetworkConnectLog is light on the resources, has a good response time and scans the local network rapidly. There were no kind of problems during our tests. To conclude, this small gem is very effective at detecting computers that connect and disconnect from your network, and its features are simple to figure out.
