PhoneSweep worked right out of the box!  I was scanning hundreds of customer
lines within the hour.  However, I have a problem with their dictionary
attack methodology on discovered modems.  Right now, you have to enter a
userid and password into one file.  It's cumbersome.

Overall I find it to be fast, stable, and easy to use.  The reports are
clean and easily consumable by execs and techies alike.  Two-thumbs-up.
