Here is my Prob- we have a main router from which we use a distributor or hub for internet connection distribution, ever computer connected automatically obtains IP address of format say - 180.50.50.xxx to access net connection.
if any connected computer has different IP format than the given one, it cannot access internet.
suppose my IPaddress is - 188.8.131.52
so all the IPs connected to my local network are of type- 180.50.50.xxx
if I want to view all connected IP address of computer that have internet connection
imports Net.Dns Dim IP as string IP=GetHostByName(GetHostName).ToString.SubString(GetHostByName(GetHostName).LastIndexOf(".")+1) 'This gets my IP address and returns substring string IP as "180.50.50" for i=0 to 255 if ping(IP + "." + i.ToString) MsgBox ("IP FOUND " + IP + "." + i.ToString) End if next
but it takes too long to ping all IPs from 0 to 255
is there any other way in which I can see all Connected IPs even of those computer which are not accessing internet from my local network?
