Network Addresses

By steveg ·
Is there a utility in Windows 2000 Adv. Server which will go out to all the machines on the network and retrieve the internal static IP addresses and computer names??
We are running a peer-to-peer network (no domain server) with 2 - 2000 Servers online.
Many thanks.

Have you tried WINS?

Frfom the command line try "arp" (or "arp -?" or similar for "help"). This will dump the local machine's ARP table. It does not, however give you names. It will give you network address and MAC addresss (a very handy bit of information sometimes).

The newer versions of Visio have a feature where they will automatically map your network. I haven't used it myself, but you may want to give it a try.

Hmmmm . . . you may want to talk with your network admin before attempting what I am suggesting below.

There are many "Freeware" utilities that will collect and display local area network IP addresses, computer names, etc. Visit web-sites like www.download.com and search for items like "monitor network"

One of my favorites is "TCPNetView" from Russia.

Use your web browser to visit:

http://www.enet.ru/~gorlach/netview/

Click the "British flag" to see the page in English.

Click the "floppy disk" to download the utility to your hard drive.

Click on the downloaded file to install to a folder of your choice.

It's a great little program. Mobile too! You can copy all of the installed files to floppy and it works great.
