LANState is a network management and administration software solution for networks. LANState contains a network device status monitor that allows a network administrator to see the state of a network on a graphic diagram in real time and to receive notifications about the time devices go out or become available, and thus ensure prompt response to failures and minimized lost time.

The functionality of the program is based on periodical polling of devices available, as displayed on the graphic map, by pinging them or attempting to connect to the required TCP port over a network, or by applying other types of checks (such as file, folder, or free disk space monitoring, MAC address checking, and SNMP monitoring). The network administrator can set up the program to respond to particular events, such as when devices go down or are turned on. Such responses can include displaying a message, playing a sound, sending an e-mail, running external programs, or recording to a log.

Downloaded it, installed no problem. Seems to do just as it says. Picked up all 5 computers, both printers, and the three wireless routers in our house, with system info.
Thank You GAOTD

I'm having no problem with this software at all. I love it.

I'm not sure why people assume that home networks don't exist. Seven of my nine computers are networked and I like being able to control the three that belong to my kids right from my own desk.

Also, for those getting error messages that merely indicates you are missing some Windows\System dll files required for it to run, that is not a problem with the program. Go download the dll files and that's all that is required.

Before complaining, perhaps you'd care to actually make an investigation into what the error messages are and accurately report them vs. a general post about how terrible the software is?

If you don't understand it then perhaps you shouldn't install it, simple.

I don't have any issues like several people here.

Mine shows as Registered Version, it is capable of seeing everything on the network that it says it can do.

Apparently some people either haven't installed it properly or there is some other issue? I doubt I was the lucky person who got the only registered version offered. Maybe some additional care when installing would help?

There's way too much moaning and groaning, and not enough appreciation shown for the programs offered. Do people here REALLY expect to get software every single day that they themselves can use? Get real! Different people have different requirements, if you get ONE program a year here that is useful to you, you should be grateful!

To guys who can not activate:
Please check your system date. If it is wrong, the program will not become activated.
Just follow the terms and conditions.

#32: Please read this: http://www.10-strike.com/lanstate/faq.shtml
There are the missing DLL files for Windows NT4.

The best part about this program is that I found out about spice works and 10 Strike from another Give Away watcher.

Thank you!

"LANState contains a network device status monitor that allows a network administrator to see the state of a network on a graphic diagram in real time..."
And a bit further it says this:
"The functionality of the program is based on periodical polling of devices available..."

Sounds a bit contradictory.
Also, it's monitoring through polling, which causes piles of overhead in the end.
Add to that the comments of the program not working at all, error messages, and the comments that even after activation it remained trialware, and I'm becoming very wary of this product.

Those that want to use it to message the kids about dinner being ready... please, just use Yahoo or even MSN... much more effective for that task.
Or here's a new technology recently discovered:
Get off your lazy ass, and yell at them that they got ten seconds to get their asses to the dinnertable.

Lanstate did not work out well. I tried to install on an NT4 machine and got a missing DLL error. I installed on an XP machine, did a network scan, it found lots and came up with a map which I saved. I damaged the view of the map so that all icons were on top of one another and it would not undo that so I restarted and tried to reload the map, but it came up blank. Lots of times it has told me it is a limited trial version even though I ran activate before and after install. So far it seems troubled, but if it could run right it may be better than the free 3com "Network Supervisor" I currently use.

I think this site has become nothing but a place for shareware/trial software publishers to dupe users into installing their software and trying to get them to pay for it later.

Just like DVD ripper, you think it is activated and it really isn't...

I have downloaded and checked out LanState (as I believe that's what the comments are intended for) and I find that it DOES work as intended for my purposes. I may be in the minority, since I have 6-7 computers on my home LAN all the time, but this gives me the option to see and log when the teenagers have NOT followed the rules and gotten offline at the appropriate time and gone to bed without staying up past my own bedtime, by simply checking the log. I find it to be valuable software, and when I followed the instructions and restarted the program after activation, there was no 2 week limit on it.
I see no reason for 10-Strike to be REQUIRED to give away totally unlimited BUSINESS software on this site...I will use this software as intended and it does not seem crippled in any way.
Thanks, GAoTD, for another great offering!

Seriously, I enjoy this site. I never know if I'll find something I enjoy. However, offers like this one are one more good reason that there are comments on the page. I've needed something like this, that I CAN use on a commercial site. Thanks to the many responses about free options I now have one that seems to be working great.

A note to GAOTD - You provide us a valuable service and we appreciate that, yet when the options provided to us have no real meaning to those of us that can and would use it because of the terms of the contract then I can't see how the service benefits you, us, of the companies looking for reviews. I have no problem reviewing good software that hasn't been crippled beyond use, or limited by the agreement to the point that I can no longer use it as it was designed.

To the companies providing our software, we thank you - or rather, we thank you who don't destroy your product with restrictions, just to get your software on this site. Bottom line, if you make a good product and I need it, I will buy it when I have to. Don't give me a piece of junk and expect me to want your product. Give me the real thing and make it good and I'll tell anyone who will listen to check you out.

yesterday a professional version while the personal is always free
... what's the point?
the final client triing useless programs or the software's companies reporting 1.000 (!?) programs douwnloaded?

Maybe GOTD should give up trying the please the 5% of whiny, demanding and critical professional computer users with commercial grade programs that even they don't seem to like and go back to making offerings for the rest of us, the 95% of average home users who appreciated...for the most part...what was offered and made this a great place to visit every day in the first place.
Just a thought.

10-strike the company that keeps striking out.

The software offered here is the personal edition. This means that it hasn't got Windows remote administration features. Or in other words it's professional software dumbed down for small home networks.

Normally you would have to pay 50 USD for it. 100 USD if you wanted the truly pro version.

So would you rather play with this or actually work with
http://www.spiceworks.com/
which is a product that seems to have lots of pleased and serious users (even from big companies) and by the way you can use personally or commercially for zero USD

Sounds like it might be worth installing for occasional troubleshooting when I get home tonight - can it detect things like network hard disks, printers, and computers connected via wifi? I've got two PCs, a linux-based drive, and a printer on the wired network, and a Mac on WiFi.

Now while I'm a network Admin, the licence prohibits me from using this in a commercial environment and is actually only a trial?

Plus I've got 30 machines. This is only good for 10. Don't see the point in this one guys, sorry.

While I appreciate the site, it seems more and more software is being offered that can only be used in a commercial setting, which is prohibited per the site agreement. As someone who has a home PC but doesn't have any use for high end server/business software, offerings like this are a bit of a disappointment.

Couldn't use the IP range detect method in the wizard, it was finding nothing, no firewalls are up (I disabled them for the test), using Vista Ultimate x64, got another computer with windows xp, didn't detect the router/modem/printer either. Isn't this very similar to the network map utility in vista, it looks close to it just with more functionality if it was working fully.
