This really depends on the architecture of your network, do you have routers DNS servers?
Is it a small LAN or is it a WAN? Are pc's in the same building?

If the switch is managed (= you can telnet or ssh to it), log on to it and dump the MAC address table.

switches don't normally run Linux.

on a Linux router, run

arp -an

Open in new window
