Bitburner: How to Scan Every Server

This script will reveal every server in Bitburner, even include those hided ones.


How to Scan Every Server

Here is the code:

var playerServers = ['home', 'Server1'];
var serverChecked = [];
var checkList = [];

/** @param {NS} ns **/
export async function main(ns) {
    await ServersScan(ns, 'home');
    await printArray(ns, serverChecked);

/** @param {NS} ns **/
async function ServersScan(ns, target) {
    var servers1 = await ns.scan(target);
    for (var server in servers1) {
        if (!checkList.includes(servers1[server])) {
    var flag = true;
    while (flag) {
        flag = false;
        for (var i = 0; i < checkList.length; i++) {
            var servers = await ns.scan(checkList);
            if (!serverChecked.includes(checkList)) {
            for (var server in servers) {
                if (!checkList.includes(servers[server])) {
    // remove player servers from serverChecked
    for (var server in playerServers) {
        for (var i = 0; i < serverChecked.length; i++) {
            if (serverChecked == playerServers[server]) {
                serverChecked.splice(i, 1);

async function printArray(ns, serverList) {
    for (var server in serverList) {
        ns.print(serverList[server] + "\n");
        ns.tprint(serverList[server] + "\n");

User menu: 
1. Create a new .js script
nano whateverthenameis.js
2. Copy past the code. I guess everyone knows how to do that!
    1)  The button on the left button corner of your keyboard which has "ctrl" printed on it, press it down first, hold it, and press "c" meanwhile. Then, release both. 
    2)  Go to the script you just created. 
    2)  Press done "ctrl" again and hold it, and press "v" in the meanwhile. 

3. Save it and run it!
run whateverthenameis.js

it should print something like this:

    I cannot get this code to work. That is all.

    It throws an error message “48:3 sorry we cannot be more helpful”

      Looks like the t missing from ns.tprint( on line 48

    Since this was lazily just copied from the steam post, “Robins Chew” didn’t test it. The problem is that the references to `checkList` on lines 22-24 (where 22 is `var servers = await ns.scan(checkList);`) all need “[i]” after the references to `checkList`.

    So those three lines should look like this:

    var servers = await ns.scan(checkList[i]);
    if (!serverChecked.includes(checkList[i])) {
