No name beside entry

HI - I am trying to track down an IP that is downloading large files, but the DHCP list does not have a name beside the entry.

I can Ping it, and get a response, but no way to find out what the device is!

Also, on another occasion, the firewall listed an IP as downloading a large file, and DHCP didn't list that IP at all...

Please advise.

How many PC's on your network? You can look at the switch, if its managed, find the MAC associated in DHCP and locate it by switch port and follow it back to the patch panel, trace it down to the client

Look at the IP and see if it gives a hostname in DNS is another way
