NetView Scanner Suite was designed to test the security of
your own computers and network.

Although NetView Scanner Suite could also potentially be used
to illicitly scan networks that are not under your control,
it was designed to protect yourself by having the same
capabilities as similar programs that before now
could only be operated by advanced computer users.

identify security weaknesses in your systems. It is important
that you use NetView to find these weaknesses before they do.

Please contact your local law enforcement agency to find out
if the way that you wish to use any program is legal. I
suspect that the reason you asked the question is because of
your good conscience, and I hope that you will
use NetView responsibly.

I hope that all people do one day understand the use of File
and Print Sharing and that often, you are actually sharing
these resources with the world. Then, we can access these
shared drives without fear of misunderstandings. We'll have a
large network of informed users sharing their files, at will,
with the public.

If possible, you may wish to make use of Raw Logic Software's
anonymous informant system to notify people if you feel
you've come across mistakenly shared resources.

Thank you for asking an important question.
