Hello community,

is it possible to prevent adding automatically scanned assets which are listed as "Network device"?

We have quiet a lot of changing mobile phones in our WLAN witch automatically be found by lansweeper. These count against your licence and we don't need these devices. We don't have a subnet for WLAN, the security is managed via a separate controller within the normal IP range. So I don't have an IP-Range for excluding scanning.

Any ideas?

Have you tried adding a scanning exclusion based on Asset Type = Network Device?
If that doesn't work, the only workaround I see is deleting these network devices using a schedule task in your SQL DB, supposing you have at least SQL Express installed.

Hello Hendrik,
thanks for your help.

The exclusion based on Asset Type worked. I thought that these exclousion will come to late since it only prevent rescanning.
