Bopup Scanner version 2.1.8 comes with minor improvements

Our Bopup Scanner application does not relate to Bopup IM suite. It is a free network scanner that lets you easily and quickly scan your LAN and show MAC with IP addresses, workstations names and even logged users on remote computers. The scanner depends on NetBIOS protocol installed over TCP/IP and supports multiple network adapters (cards) installed on a local computer.

New version of Bopup Scanner software fixes minor issues and opens Options dialog box on it's first startup to allow to choose network interface to use for a scan and IP range, if it is needed.

A new great tool to create and edit existing Setup.ini configuration file

We are glad to inform our existing customers and new clients that we have released Setup.ini Configuration Tool that helps to easily and fast create new and edit existing setup.ini file.

As you know our IM client software, both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients can be installed and distributed with a set of pre-existing settings. In order to enable this the setup.ini must be placed into the same directory that contains installation package of the instant messenger. The main issue was that the setup.ini settings file includes a lot of options and it is a little difficult to learn which settings are for and to build a proper file by editing file's entry in a text editor.

To support our users we released Setup.ini Configuration Tool that is now available for download at This handy utility offers to set up all needed and required options via graphic interface that is similar to the Options window of the instant messenger software.

The options property dialog of the configuration tool looks like the Options dialog box in the Bopup Messenger client. So you can set and clear check boxes like you are working in the messenger. The most of the check boxes are 3-state and having checked, unchecked and undefined states. Each from these states applies the following in the end-user IM client software:
  • Checked — the option will be enabled and grayed out in the messenger client, users will not be able to change it
  • Unchecked — the option will be disabled and grayed out in the messenger client, users will not be able to change it
  • Undefined — the setting will not be included to setup.ini file that means that users will be able to change and modify it from the messengers
The configuration tool also provides a Preview function. It allows to quickly see how the settings will look in the instant messenger interface, i.e. which options will be enabled/disabled and which will be available for change to a user. To preview options click Preview button in the options property dialog.

New version of our free network scanner software

Do you know that we also have Bopup Scanner freeware product? That network utility is a useful tool for network administrators and users who want to explore their local area network (LAN) and to find all available computers within IP and MAC addresses, logged user names from NetBIOS table. The scanner also recognizes and displays HTTP (Web) servers running on remote computers on a LAN by scanning 80 and 8080 TCP/IP ports.

New version 2.1.6 fixes a critical error which may occur immediately after the scan process completes.
