Is there a commandline command that will allow me to see all computers and their current IP addresses from my workstation without having to log on to server?

Thanks I tried that but I was getting the following message
"There are no entries in the list."
and thought that I had the wrong one. Any idea why I may be getting that one, current user is not Admin account, would I need admin rights to get that? I am putting together our asset program from scratch and need to be able to gather computers, IP and MAC as quickly as possible to input into asset management program we purchased.

Yes you will need some rights, and admin is always a good one. But to let you know, this will list the machine names and not the IP's.

Okay. I guess I had believed that I would be able to get all of that. Not to change the original question too much but do you happen to know if there is a way to do that within Windows?

Hi,
Are you on a network (Domain)?
Do you have a DHCP server?
If yes then can you go to the scope and export the data.
If you can explain if you want to get computername and ipaddress without admin rights.

I decided to use Net View from Server and it did list all computers so technically you did answer my question. I was hoping that this solution would help me accomplish my project simply but perhaps in all fairness to you I should just start the question over.

Thanks zephyr_hex, I'll try that.
bsharath, yes we're on a domain, running SBS 2003.
No just thought that for the sake of efficiency I could accomplish all of this from my workstation without having to use the server to do this.

You can try "Angry Ip scanner" this will get all the computers,ip,domain details on the screen which can be exported later

Wow that got away from me quick. bsharath let me tell you Angry IP Scanner worked great. At first I was thinking that oh great another program to buy but you can't beat free. I decided to sign the petition because it was tagged as a potential virus by Symantec.
asvforce I hope that you don't mind that I may accept multiple solutions, only because the answers came in before I could close down the original question.
zephyr_hex I didn't get to trying your solution because Angry IP Scanner worked so well. Sorry.
