    Is there a way to run an Automatic scan using Wildcards (i.e. % or *) either Scheduled or kicked off and ran manually?
    Example: FINDPC%OWNER% or FINDPC*OWNER*
    This is a very powerful application. I am very impressed with all the information I can pull from PC’s on our network.
    I am using the newest Trial version 3.7(build 3.7.1249)
    Thanks.

    Didn’t get the idea… are the wildcards used to mask scanned computers’ names?

    No, I don’t want to scan our Whole Network, just a specific PC’s DNS name that is used. In my previous example, I want to scan for:
    FINDPC%OWNERXX or FINDPC%OWNER01, FINDPC%OWNER02, FINDPC%OWNER03…. and so on.

    Sorry, but what is “FINDPC%OWNERXX” exactly? Is it a PC name? Or a command-line parameter you would like to use? I still can’t get it. Is this a kind of a filter you would like to apply when the first scanning procedure is launched, so that some of the nodes that don’t match the condition are omitted? It would be simpler if you could differentiate your nodes by IP addresses, in this case you could just specify the IP-ranges to scan.

    Sorry for the confusion. :o) And Thanks for your quick response.
    That’s a bad example. You nailed it though, It is a filter I would like to apply. We have a large number of nodes that I want to Omit from the Scan. But it sounds like it may be easiest to scan the whole network.
    Thanks again for your assistance.

    No problem… I hope full scan will really be OK for you!
