Is there a way to view all the ip addresses being used on a Windows 2000 server / XP pro workstation network?

I can view all computer names through "network places".  I would like that kind of info listing but for ip addresses instead.

Thanks.

Discovering IP addresses and MAC addresses on your LAN

There are a few ways to do this; the first relies on ALL your network devices answering to a broadcast ping (i.e. ping 192.168.1.255) more often than not this doesn’t work.

The reason you want to do this is, once you have pinged an IP address it is listed in your arp table (you can view your arp table from command line with the arp –a command.

As you don't want to manually ping every address, there’s an easier way.

1. Download the freeware utility winping http://www.webattack.com/get/wping.shtml
2. Start winping click landiscovery
3. Put your network address in at the top and click start
4. When its done Click Start >run >cmd {enter}
5. At command line type arp-a>>c:\ip.txt

Look on the root of your C drive for the file called ip.txt and there you go :)

FYI - Unfortunately, NT and its successors cannot do broadcast pings, so ping 192.168.0.255 will not ping every host in that range and give you a response, as on unix based systems.
