I need a line of code necessary to iterate through all possible IPs on my subnet and build a list of IP addresses that respond to a ping command. Something along the lines of:
FOR /L %%a IN (1, 1, 254) DO PING -n 1 -w 60 192.168.1.%%a | find /i "Reply" >> IPs.txt
However I only want it to log the IP address itself, not any of the other information. I think I need to incorporate a
findstr /i "from" command or something in there but don't know how to go about it and grab the text next to it. I would also like to know if it's possible to append future runnings of the command (>> IPs.txt) to the existing list but not repeat any of the IPs. Is it possible to check the list first then not add that IP if it's already in there?
