Raw Logic's NetView Scanner Suite has been tested and
verified to work over DSL lines. I suspect that many NetView
Scanner users scan over a DSL line.
There could be a problem with the way that your DSL
connection is implemented. The router that you are using may
not be able to route the traffic required (especially UDP
traffic), or may be blocking its use.
I would recommend talking to the providers of your DSL line
and ask them if it supports Microsoft File and Printer
Sharing across the Interenet.
If you feel that the problem is a "time out" issue, increase
the time out value in NetView Scanner.
Many digital subscriber providers block File and Print
Sharing to protect their users. While limiting, it is safer
for the unsophisticated user.
