1 There must be a number of people who post here that have had to do
2 this problem.
4 Discover the addresses of computers on a home network that have
5 connected by way of DHCP. For example: Several wireless connections.
7 I've used static IPS for around 10 yrs, always seemed handier for
8 things like ssh between home lan computers.
10 But recently started using DHCP for wireless connections. It must be
11 such a popular method for some reason.
13 But when you do it that way, and say want to VNC or ssh or the like to
14 something connected by a dhcp serving WAP then how do you find the
15 address?
17 That is, besides something like accessing the WAP and checking the IPs
18 connected to it.
20 Is there some quick and sure way to discover any IPs on the home lan?
22 Some kind of mapper tool?
