I need to try and discover the IP address for a third-party device.  It is directly connected to a PC, so it could be about anything.  The PC it was connected to crashed, so in an attempt to try and get it set back up, I need to know if there is a way to find out what its IP address is.  Is it possible using a tool like nmap or some other network utility to "listen" or "discover" the IP address on the other side?
