User Guide


This User Guide provides details on navigation, application settings, and the tabs available in ReView.

UI Overview

To navigate through ReView, click the tabs and sub-tabs at the top of the application. The major tabs are:

  • Home (House Icon) - The Home page is the initial page displayed while in ReView. Here, prompts will be displayed to set up initial configuration and direct to initial scanning steps.

  • Discovery - The discovery tab is first step to identifying network resources to add to your inventory. Here, you can use configuration files, paste text configs, or use automated scanning options to identify devices to use for Discovery. Available discovery / device identification options include: DHCP, DNS, Firewall, Generic Config, mDNS, Load Balancer, Ping Scan, RIR, Router Configs, SNMP, ARP, and SSDP.

  • To-Do List - The To-Do list identifies and marks neighboring devices encountered during router discovery scanning, and lists them for future scanning.

  • Inventory - The Inventory tab displays an organized list of all discovered netblocks, IPs, sources, and their associated metadata. Here, for each netblock you can view RIR, Source, CIDR, use status, IPs found, total IPs, IP utilization, and start/end address.

  • Analyze - The Analyze tab interprets the IP inventory data found during Discovery, and determines valuation of free IPv4 space based on the current network structure.

  • Planning - The Planning tab continues where the Analyze tab leaves off, implementing an advanced sorting / packing algorithm to determine the steps necessary to free up as much contiguous space as possible. It then shows the additional potential value that may be achievable if the recommended steps are followed.

  • Export - Export will prepare a report on the state of your network and email it to both you and to Hilco.


Click the settings icon at the top right of the navigation bar to open ReView settings.
