Locating computer on network
Posted on 2011-02-17
I am running on a 2003 domain with XP machines. On occasion I will pick up personal laptop. I can find them in My Network Places in a Workgroup. I then have the pleasure of trying to locate them and tell them no personal laptops. The problem I'm having is finding any information on laptops that are in a different workgroup (MSHOME) for example. I can usually ping the computer name and get an IP Address, but only if I can find out the name. Is there any utility I can run to find a computer in a workgroup if a name is not listed?
