Easiest is to install a free windows App called Look@Lan

google and download. Works great

As Neilsr suggests there isn't a native Windows application that can give you the information you need.  

You could write a script to cycle though the local subnet looking for devices that can be pinged but third-party apps might be better.  

My suggestion would be the Advanced IP Scanner or Advanced Port Scanner from Famatech (http://www.radmin.com/download/utilities.php).

here is an inventory script written in autoit that scans and entire range of ip addresses
You will have to rename the .txt to .exe
inventory.txt

The native command:

arp -a

tells you which devices the current computer has in it's ARP table, i.e. ones it has talked to recently.

You can, as has been said, scan a subnet, ping each device and then look at the arp table say:

@Echo off
for /l %%a in (1,1,254) do ping x.x.x.%%a -n 1 -w 50 >NUL 2>&1
ping 127.0.0.1 -n 10 >NUL
arp -a > arp.txt
notepad arp.txt

Steve, do you put the above script (from @echo off to notepad statement) in a txt and save as .bat file? i did that, but it just opens as a txt documnent.

You probably have it saved as something.bat.txt if you didn't select in notepad "all files" when saving.  Paste into notepad, Save As, select "all files", type in pingall.cmd or something.


This revised version shows the ping results too:

@echo off
(for /l %%a in (1,1,254) do ping -n 1 -w 50 192.168.1.%%a | find "TTL"
arp -a) > pinglist1.txt
find /v "invalid" pinglist1.txt > pinglist.txt
del pinglist1.txt
notepad pinglist.txt

Make sure you change 192.168.1. to the first three octets of your IP addresses -- it may be this, 192.168.0, 10.0.0 or some other value you may have set.  Check ipconfig on your machine if not sure.

That will give you something like:


---------- PINGLIST1.TXT

that worked good, Steve.

5g6tdcv4, would that work for a non-domain network? (simpler home network)
