    How to list the ICS clients' IP addresses in Windows 10?

    I'm using ICS on Windows 10 (has both WiFi and Ethernet) to share Internet with other Windows 10 machines (on Ethernet) and is working perfectly fine. The Server is getting assigned IP and the clients are getting IP's in the same subnet but with random IP addresses. I would like to know from the ICS server about the list IPs assigned to the ICS clients so that I can communicate with clients with IP. I don't have monitors connected to the clients, I access them vi RDP.

    Please advise if it is possible to know the clients' assigned IPs (ofcourse, i can run a script with ping to each IP in the sequence to find out which IPs are UP but I don't want to do that way) from ICS server. If NOT then is there any easy free alternative to ICS?

    You could use arp in a command prompt It will not tell you the computer names just IP's

    arp -a
    Here is a example in PowerShell although it works the same with the typical cmd prompt.

    Thanks sml156 & samuria. :)

    arp worked great but Netbscanner (even though I chose "slowest" scan) did not show any IP when I gave whole subnet range. should I run it in cli mode with any option?

    Netbscanner needs to know the IP range to scan, You can set that in options.

    Also if you have Android phones it will not pick them up, Same as the ARP in command prompt unless you force the device to send out an arp.

    I usually use a program called Softperfect network scanner I think it sends arp requests while also scanning for open ports (if you select ports in the options), The new version is not free (I think) but you can still find the older free version's on some of the well known and reputable download sites
