Find All Active/Used IP Addresses on Your Network
There is a really neat way that you can quite easily find all active/used IP Addresses on your network without the need for any third party applications or worse, pinging each IP Address individually.
Open the Command Prompt and type in the following:
Change 192.168.10 to match you own network.
By using -n 1 you are asking for only 1 packet to be sent to each computer instead of the usual 4 packets.
The above command will ping all IP Addresses on the 192.168.10.0 network and create a text document in the C:\ drive called ipaddresses.txt.Â This text document should only contain IP Addresses that replied to the ping request.
Although it will take quite a bit longer to complete, you can also resolve the IP Addresses to HOST names by simply adding -a to the ping command.
GUI Based Discovery
If you’re not confident using the command prompt, there are alternative GUI based applications that you can use.
TCPNetView – No installation is required, simply double-click the executable and away it goes.Â It will find all active IP Addresses on the subnet you are currently connected too.
