Hi

I'm using nmap -sP 10.0.0.0/24 to find all hosts in the subnet. But somehow my 2 windows 7 computers are not listen in the output. Should I use an other command?

Are you running nmap as yourself or as root?

When -sP (or -sn) is run as an unprivileged user, SYN packets are only sent to ports 80 and 443.
