Getting response from unknown ip address
Posted on 2013-10-28
Here is a weird one (for me anyway).
I want to set a static ip on a users desktop to 192.168.1.193, but get a conflict every time. We have no record of assigning that address (it is outside of our DHCP pool). When I ping it, I get a response, but when a do a "pathping" I don't get anything.
Is there any way to display the device name, or anything, holding this ip address? Or is there someway to disable/block it (then see who screams)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
