    browse a network


    i`m some what new to linux. my question is, how do i browse a network in linux. know i can do rdesktop and ftp & stuff but i know the ip/name of the machine already. how do i browse the network like i can in windows. is there a way i can ping the machine to see what ports are open? not a port scanner. just the ports like: 21, 80, 139, & 3389. just the one i use alot. when i`m on a big network i use "live cds" (DSL & knoppix). can anyone help?
    thanks
