Using NMAP to find active devices
In a recent post i mentioned using NMAP for Windows to find out the ip addesses of devices connected on the network. In this post I wish to lift that section out specifically.
The command for finding all active devices in the selected subnet is:
nmap -sP 192.168.8.0/24
The output might be somthing like:
C:\Users\Arnav>nmap -sP 192.168.8.0/24 Starting Nmap 7.70 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2019-06-02 17:51 W. Europe Summer Time /***/ Nmap scan report for photon-rpi3.jain.lan (192.168.8.228) Host is up (0.0030s latency).
