I've been running Fing for Android for a while now, and was excited to see a Windows version.
However, I'm running into an issue with the Desktop scan.  I have my network setup for SuperNetting, 255.255.254.0.
I have my network separated into two segments.  IP range 10.14.72.x is set for all of my home automation.  Google Home, security cameras, smart bulbs, smart outlets, etc.
IP Range 10.14.73.x is my DHCP, where I have my main Media Server, Xbox's and stuff.
The Desktop scan only shows the 10.14.73 devices.
But the Android version scans and see's both IP ranges.  Is this just a limitation for Windows, or will the app be able to scan both in future releases?

    If Fing could scan both subnets they aren't truly segregated.

    Hi @joeskelly
    For Fing App and Fing Desktop, both applications will scan the network on which the device is connected to. If you are connected to one subnet then Fing Desktop will scan that subnet only.

    The Android version of Fing scans both just fine.

    Both addresses pools are on the same network, same router. Using the 255.255.254.x subnet gives you more addresses.

    Hi @joeskelly
    Can you share the screenshot of the Fing Desktop scan as well to compare with Fing App? Thanks

    I agree with joeskelly, I have two routers that serve different uses and the desktop app does not allow changing of networks where as it does with my android phone.
