Does anyone knows about a good software to discovery the ip for the computers in the same network subnet, I would like something fast not like those scanning range software right there, I would like something like probing and finds the computers close to you. I don't need to Scan for ports just computers on the network so I can get the name of the computer and it's ip.


Thanks

That's what I use.  It has memory also..so if you have a static network you won't accidentally put two pc's on the same ip.

Search Google for "ping sweeper" you will find many programs that do this. You may also include your OS in the search to narrow down the options. Try adding "free" to find one you don't have to pay for.

Solar Winds ping scanner will ping anything you want and resolve the DNS names if your inverse arp is set up correctly.

On the freeware front, try SuperScan.  Yes it will port scan, but you can turn all that off.  It's fast and easy and will generate a nice html report.

If you are sweeping your local network segment, you'll have a record of all the IP - MAC addresses in your computers arp table.

To display, at the command prompt type arp -a

What about on the software itself, can I find that?

Ideally, you would just go into the router of the local segment and look at the ARP table.  Of course, you'd need a managed router.
