    C'mon Windows Networking - I want IP's of all machines on LAN


    Hi folks

    Surely the network display command should do better than this

    How do I get IP addresses of everything connected to LAN in windows. This doesn't do it.

    C'mon Windows Networking - I want IP's of all machines on LAN-nwx.png

    The most obvious command isn't any better than just browsing network in File exporer -- I can't believe sysadmins on a Windows network haven't got the means to identify IP addresses of each machine on their LANS.

    This might be a silly question - but I'm not a network guru and certainly not a Windows expert by any manner of means --however this sort of stuff should really be available easilly --maybe my English is getting rusty but doesn't the word ALL imply everything there is to know about the subject. !!!! So why is the IP address not shown !!!!!!

    Ever since windows 2000 i'd use the Active directory tools on the server which are not available on non server setups. I can't remember the syntax for the old DOS commands

    In a workgroup environment there are a few tools in the sysinternals and Nirsoft suites that can do a job,

    a basic IP scanner would be better in a mixed network environment

    As you have a lot of Linux hardware a universal option is probably best give Angry IP Scanner download | SourceForge.net a try

    I use advanced IP scanner.
    And of course: all info is available in router.
    Most routers can give a fixed (static) IP number to a device

    Nigel is correct. NirSoft NetBScanner does the job you want if you augment it with ipconfig to get the IP address of the computer you are using to run it [or just run NetBScanner on one of the others as well].

    C'mon here "Denis the Menace" it seems. (Not trying to be nasty but I'm not an expert in this networking stuff so :

    What am I meant to do when presented with a network site like this : (Your supplied Link BTW)

    C'mon Windows Networking - I want IP's of all machines on LAN-screenshot_20200216_181452.png

    All I want is IP: xxxx.xxxx.xxxx.xxxx (or the IPV6 one if being used) and the hostname) -- I shouldn't have to go through rings and hoops to get it on a LOCAL LAN !!!

    If it's running DHCP it may change IP every hour

    @jimbo45 (and anyone else that needs those odd little applets that make your Windows life easier)

    grab yourself a copy of Windows System Control Center WSCC which is a totally free way of using a large number of such utils, and importantly explaining them and managing them so you always have the latest version

    It works with the Sysinternals suite, Nir Sofar apps from Nirsoft Microsoft's own windows apps and many more ...

    I have used it for years, I update it before I use anything from it to keep up to date - but that is just my choice, I have set up a folder structure where each of the suppliers have their own folder, but they could all go into one if you prefer

    It's worth it's weight in swear words for anyone who wishes to have access to this kind of toolset without leaning everything and keeping it up to date

    A quick way is to look at your arp table
    Code:
    arp -a
    It's no the most reliable way though.

    Good luck with IPv6 (it's a little confusing and not reliable either
    Code:
    netsh int ipv6 show neigh

    No, that is not my 'supplied link'.
    Your diagram shows the address www.nirsoft.net
    I gave you www.nirsoft.net/utils/netbios_scanner.html i.e. the specific page that you need.
