In short I will conclude by saying that I would suggest hand scanning. But, it's all personal choice.

im sorta new to phreaking and im wondering the difference between wardialing and scanning. is scanning done completely by hand? you just start dialing numbers?
Alrighty, first off my friend, any questions you might have it's always better to make the topic a little bit more informative, something like Difference between scanning and wardialing would have worked. That way you'll get much more views that are on target.
The difference between these two things I really think depends on who you ask. In my humble opinon I consider the different that scanning is done by hand in an attempt to find intresting phone numbers, while war dialing is done by a computer to find carrier signals.
To learn a bunch of about phreaking try checking out the alt.phreaking FAQ, it's a good start to answer a bunch of these first timer questions. If you have anything else in specific feel free to ask around here

Depends on the type of numbers you want to find. If you want to find just modem carriers and/or tones, then use a wardialer such as ToneLoc. If you want to find some really interesting test numbers, automated systems, ANACs, etc, then hand scan. Just make a list of all the numbers you want to scan, and call them, noting down what each number was.

about wardialing, do you need to be connected through a modem to wardial? you ned to somehow be connected to the foneline right? i connect to internet thru wireless router, my computer isnt connect to a phoneline atall.
Well, if you're using a wardialing program, the computer has to be able to dial the phone somehow.
