    scanning for IP addresses


    Hey...
    is there some way to scan for active IP addresses? This is a problem I have needed a solution for before. For instance, in a closed LAN (I'm sure this would be horrible to try and use while connected to the internet) I have a network printer that has been lost to the world because it has somehow gotten it's own, bizarre IP address and to change it you must telnet into it. I would like to find a way to ping either all IP addresses or all within a set parameter (for instance, within a 192.168.. mask). I figure this would be easy to script, but I am still stupid in that area...
    Any hits?
