View Full Version : [SOLVED] Software to scan/show all computers on LAN

July 5th, 2009, 04:21 AM
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.

I use nmap

It's in the repo's.

I use nmap

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:

john@kubu904:~> smbtree -N
\\UBUNTU904\IPC$ IPC Service ()
\\SUSE111\HL2040 HL2040
\\SUSE111\IPC$ IPC Service ("")
and smbtree -NS shows just the servers:
