Someone has attached a personal computer to the network in a remote office and I would like to find out more about the PC. All I can see is the machine name and IP address in DHCP manager on Windows 2003 Server.
If I ping the computer nothing comes back and if I try to open the c$ share the network path is not found. If I try to manage it through Windows XP I get path not found.
Is there anything I can do to access or scan this PC to find out more about it? Like - operating system, user who is logged onto it, manufacturer, or to confirm if the PC is actively connected to the network?
