Select Detection Options dialog box

Use this dialog box to configure settings for manually detecting devices through SNMP. Access the dialog box by clicking Manage Devices > Detect now from the Administration application.

Use SNMP detection

Output Manager uses the SNMP service to search for devices on the network.


Output Manager searches for SNMPv1-enabled devices.


Output Manager searches for SNMPv3-enabled devices.


Output Manager uses a broadcast query to search for devices.

IP Ranges

Output Manager searches IP address ranges for devices. You can import the ranges from a file, add a single IP address range, or scan a domain for IP address ranges.

Use web (HTTP) detection (requires IP Range configuration)

If you use SNMP detection to query IP ranges, and devices do not respond to the SNMP queries, select this option to query through HTTP as a backup. If Output Manager detects devices through HTTP, Output Manager retrieves only the device manufacturer and model.

Import ranges from file button

Adds IP address ranges that are defined in a comma separated values (CSV) file. Verify that the values in the file are formatted as follows:


The following example shows values from a CSV file:,,,,,,My favorite range,,,,,,Common Color range,,,,,,

Add single IP range

Use this section to add a single IP address range. Specify the start and end addresses and click Add.

Discover domain IP ranges

Use this section to discover IP address ranges in a domain. The current domain appears by default. Network size determines how long it takes Output Manager to discover IP ranges on a domain. Discovering IP ranges takes longer on a large network.

Discover button

Change the current domain if necessary and click this button to scan the domain for IP address ranges.

The Status indicator shows the number of computers found in the Active Directory. While the scan is in progress, the indicator shows the approximate remaining scan time. The discovered IP addresses are grouped into ranges of 256 addresses ( –
