Is there anyway that I can build a small app that would allow me to specify a subnet and get back all of the computer names that are active?  For example, in PCAnywhere I can type 192.168.1.255 for the host address and it will give me a list of all the active computers in that subnet.  I want to be able to do this in VB so that I can use that information for auditing.

Thanks guys, but shortly after I left work today I thought of a better way of doing this.  I simply queried my AD server for all the computers in my domain...... I know I should have thought about it a long time ago.  Thanks anyways guys.
