Portable app network scanner

Hi,

I'd like to use a portable app network scanner in a Powershell GUI (button start should run this network scanner).
Network scanner should scan for ip but also possibility to scan network ports. That way we can troubleshoot thins more easily.

Since it would be used in production environment, I'd need to be absolutely sure it is spyware free.
What portable app free network scanner would do?

Note: it should require NO prereqs, like angry ip scanner is asking for Java. It should also detect the network you are in so you can just hit a button and click scan (but also the option to enter the network range you want to scan).

Please advise.
J.

I'm not aware of such an application. Cause the scanners I know, need to install drivers.

SoftPerfect Network Scanner. Be sure that you specifically choose the Windows portable version of the download.

Edit: on second thought, it might not work within PowerShell, even though it is capable of doing things via PowerShell. However, all of the other requirements are definitely met.
