Hi;
Following script lists all possible ip address in range:

#!/bin/bash

is_alive_ping()
{
  ping -c 1 $1 > /dev/null
  [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo Node with IP: $i is up.
}

for i in 192.168.1.{1..255} 
do
is_alive_ping $i & disown
done

Open in new window


Then save the scipt as a named bash_ping_scan.sh

Execute the script file
./bash_ping_scan.sh

Open in new window


Sample output like this:

Node with IP: 192.168.1.1 is up.
Node with IP: 192.168.1.4 is up.
Node with IP: 192.168.1.9 is up.

Open in new window
