vrf DynamicFindRemoteInstruments.vee

Question asked by VRFuser on Oct 16, 2005
I think the problem is that scanning all the LAN addresses (around 65000
combinations on a 192.168.0.0/255.255.0.0 subnet), will take a long time.

And you won't be friends with your local IT admin for long if you start scanning
the corporate network
