Android Smartphone Inventory Scanning

The program uses the SSH protocol for scanning Linux computers. The Android OS for tablets and smartphones is based on Linux so it can be scanned as well. For doing this, you will need to have an SSH server installed and running on your devices. A free or paid SSH server can be downloaded and installed using Google Play.

The program configuration is the same as for the Linux scanning using SSH. You will need to configure administrator login and password for the SSH access and select hosts for polling this way in the program settings ("Collecting information" -> "Collect Information via SSH").

An example of scanning an Android device:

The program gathers the data on the operating system, installed applications, and hardware.
