Determine identity of an IP
Posted on 2009-02-10
I have an IP on my internal network that I can't seem to determine the origin of. I can ping the IP, but I can't do anything else.
Below is what I tried in order to figure out what it is.
1. Checked DNS (nothing listed for that IP)
2. Tried Remote Desktop
3. Tried VNC
4. Tried Telnet
5. Tried FTP
6. Tried adding it as a printer.
When I do a network scan, the IP comes back with no hostname, no computer name, no netbios information, no mac address ... nothing. (I used ipscan.exe for these tests).
Can anyone think of either:
A. A way to determine what the IP is?
B. A way to make my windows network block this IP from accessing any other part of the network so hopefully someone will scream and say something broke and I will be able to determine what the rogue IP is.
Thank you in advance.
