Hi.  I have a script that I use to push patches to the boxes on my network.  Problem is, when it tries to push to a router or a printer (I just feed it a subnet and it goes through the whole subnet) it will hang for about 5+ seconds before it realizes it cannot manage the device.  Is there any quick and easy way to tell whether or not the device is a manageable PC or just a network device?  Thanks!

It's somewhat difficult to change the RPC timeout on-the-fly inside a program.  However you can use ping (with a 1-second wait) to quickly find "dead" IP addresses.
