Subject description: Names plus associated MAC and IP addresses
 

My android tablet has a very nice application called Flingbox. Flingbox will give you a listing of all devices on the network. The information includes both the MAC value and the IP address. Yes, there is a Linux version. But, I figure it should be possible to do it with the IP tools available in Puppy.

I use Fatdog64 version 630. It has busybox version 1.22.0. There is a new command called "ip" that should be able to help. I have tried using with a minimum of results.

Any suggestions on how to get this information. Thank you in advance for any help on this.

Do you want information about the WiFi adapters in your own computer or about the remote access points? Or about all machines connected to your own LAN?

This may be what you are looking for.

mpscan is commonly used in puppy...I use it to check for NFS shares .

nmap is a good tool but not normally in puppy I believe.

Thanks for the information Mikeb and rcrsn51 for the replies. I am looking the MAC and IP address of remote hosts and all other computers attached to the wifi network. I do know that ipconfig along with the system information utility will provide the information on your computer's hardware.

I did try mpscan, it is a port scanner and not quite what I want. I am looking for the command line utilities that could do the listing. I will do so more looking. Thanks again for the help.

My android tablet has a very nice application called Fing.

Searching the web I have found this:

Downloaded TGZ 64-bit, 32-bit in Fatdog-700b1

Launched fing from terminal:

Thanks for the help all. Thanks L18L for the information that fatdog64 700b1 will use the Flingbox package directly. Yes, the screen shot is the same as Android version. There has to be away to get the same information with existing IP tools. I will also try the Flingbox package and see it works.

Subject description: Another option to list devices on network
 

Hi

I have used arp-scan to gather this info on home networks. It runs in Puppy and works very quickly. It may be another option that is worth considering. The web address is:

This is also cute for finding just IP's:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

is_alive_ping()
{
  ping -c 1 $1 > /dev/null
  [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo IP: $i is up.
}

for i in 192.168.1.{1..255}
do
is_alive_ping $i & disown
done

Thank you all for the information. It appears that either arp-scan or nmap would supply the information. Unfortunately, neither are present in fatdog64. arp-scan is available only as source code and nmap is available in rpm format, but, I can not extract it.

I was looking at arp or ip neighbor show to get the address resolution protocol tables. I can get the one on my local hosts but not on the remote hosts. Ideally, if one could get the table for the router at the head of the network then you would have the whole network.

Trapster, the find ip script works, but, the next command prompt is on the same line as the last active IP address when the script ends. It does work and provides the information on the system.
