The rxInventory 2.5 update contains numerous improvements as well as interesting new features for our hardware- and software inventory tool designed for networks of all sizes. From now on Linux and Apple Mac computers are scanned in detail by using the SSH (Secure Shell) protocol and show up inside the management console with an identifying icon. The “Previous Scans” view provides access to the hardware and software state of devices in the past. For always up-to-date information scans can be scheduled to periodically run in the background.

The update is free of charge and recommended for all users of previous versions.
