Hi there,

This may not be the most efficient way to do this, but it does work.  Try out this Powershell code:
$startrange = read-host "Enter a start IP"
$endrange = read-host "Enter an end IP"
$startsubnet = "$($startrange.Split(".")[0]).$($startrange.Split(".")[1]).$($startrange.Split(".")[2])."
$endsubnet = "$($endrange.Split(".")[0]).$($endrange.Split(".")[1]).$($endrange.Split(".")[2])."
if ($startsubnet -eq $endsubnet) {
    $startip = $($startrange.Split(".")[3])
    $endip = $($endrange.Split(".")[3])
    $startip..$endip | foreach{test-connection -ComputerName $startsubnet$_ -count 1} | select -expandproperty ipv4address | select -expandproperty ipaddresstostring | foreach{[System.Net.Dns]::GetHostByAddress("$_")}
} else {
    write-host "Start subnet was not the same as the end subnet"
}

Open in new window


Regards,

Rob.
