Scan Types

CCleaner Network has three options you can use for scanning a Network for Endpoints. By default, all three are enabled:

  • Microsoft NetBIOS service - this method uses NetBIOS to locate and query hosts
  • Piriform Agent service - once you have deployed Endpoint Agents, this method will send a query to them when it scans the Network
  • Active Directory service - this method uses Active Directory (if supported by the Network) to locate and query hosts

To modify which scan types CCleaner Network uses

  1. In the Network Tree, select the Network name.
  2. Select Network > Options.
  3. The Network scanning methods appear at the bottom of the Network tab on the Options dialog box. Make your changes, and then select OK.
