Thanks Smoken, but I was actually trying to find the machines without having to specify hostname or IP

Do you know an IP range, or subnet?

If you know the IP Range the software will do the scan and let you know what is on the network you do not need to know the hostnames because it will pull it for you.

okay, that's good, but I was hoping to find a way to do it from a perl script so that I can perform other tasks on the system itself.
