How to find what "ip addresses" are being used in a subnet

Quickly Find Used IP Addresses

Instead of manually pinging all IP addresses on your LAN you can use this nice command:
Open Command Prompt and type:
FOR /L %i IN (1,1,254) DO ping -n 1 192.168.0.%i | FIND /i "Reply">> c:\ipaddresses.txt
For E.g FOR /L %i IN (1,1,254) DO ping -n 1 10.30.220.%i | FIND /i "Reply">> c:\ipaddresses.txt
The "-n 1" is for only 1 ping packet to be sent to each computer.Change 192.168.0 to match you own Network ID.

This will ping all IP addresses on the network segment and create a text file called IPADDRESSES.TXT in C:\, where it will list only the IP addresses that gave a reply.

You can also add a -a to the PING command to resolve all the responding IP addresses to HOST names, but doing so will cause the script to take a considerable time to finish:
FOR /L %i IN (1,1,254) DO ping -a -n 1 192.168.0.%i | FIND /i "Reply">> c:
