    Software to scan/show all computers on LAN

    Is there a package (preferably from the repositories, of course) that will display all the computers it can access (maybe ping is a more accurate word) on my LAN? I'm looking for something where I can specify a port, and it'll show me all the ip addresses, plus maybe any other information like os, etc, of computers that have that port open. Thanks!

    EDIT: Posted too soon. nmap will do exactly this. Sorry about the redundant post.

    Nmap is good, I use it too.
    Not sure if there are many others, but it's the best I have found on Ubuntu and Windows

    smbtree is good too.
    smbtree -N shows like this:
    HTML Code:
    john@kubu904:~> smbtree -N
    SWERDNA
            \\UBUNTU904
                    \\UBUNTU904\IPC$                IPC Service ()
                    \\UBUNTU904\ubufiles
            \\SUSE111
                    \\SUSE111\HL2040                HL2040
                    \\SUSE111\IPC$                  IPC Service ("")
                    \\SUSE111\QuickBooks
                    \\SUSE111\linuxshare
            \\DRAGAVISTA
    and smbtree -NS shows just the servers:
    HTML Code:
    john@kubu904:~> smbtree -NS
    SWERDNA
            \\UBUNTU904
            \\SUSE111
            \\DRAGAVISTA
