Linux Network

By choth ·
In Windows O.S, to see the connected computers in the LAN, you double click Network Neighborhood or My Network Places. In Linux O.S, what do you do to see the connected computers? Thank you very much.

Linux Network

by tung_chin In reply to Linux Network

the easiest way is if you know the ip address's of each machine...
If they are connected to the network you should be able to ping said machine.

EG: linux machine being 192.168.1.1
Windows box 192.168.1.2

from the consol in linux type ping 192.168.1.2 if you get a response you will know the box is on the network.

I know that I can use "ping" command, but I do not want to do this. All I want is that I would like to see the connected computers on Linux screen like in Windows O.S. For example, if a LAN consists of 10 PCs, named C1-C10, when I double click Network Neighborhood I can see these machines in C1 or C2 ...etc... Thanks for your answer.

For example, if a LAN consists of 10 PCs, named from C1-C10. If I go to Network Neighborhood or My Network Places, I can see these 10 PCs on Network Neighborhood or My Network Places screen. You see that I do not want to use the "ping", or "net view" to see the connected machines. All that I wanted is that I would like to see the connected machines under the X-Windows like Windows O.S "Network Neighborhood or My Network Places". Thank you for your help.

KDE Explorer has that functionality, as does a program called linneighborhood. You can doa web search for these if they aren't already on your system

Try the rup command. It does not have all the little computer icons, but it will give you a list of all the machines on your subnet.
