My NetScan Results: Help with an IP.
I am gathering a list of all the IP's of each computer here at work. Instead of walking to each one, I ran NetScan to save some time. I got what I needed, but something caught my eye. If there was nothing using an IP, the Hostname field came up with a "?". The "Responding IP" came up with "N/R". Well, one Hostname came up with the "?" but, there was an IP. How can I figure out what this IP belongs to? I did later on, go to each and every computer. Could it be a printer? Maybe it's the router? I know it's not the server. Thanks for any help.

You should provide more specific details of the computers on the network, what its connected to, if you have internet connectivity, OS, netscan version and so on...

A nice scanner to use to perform you task is called AngryIP Scanner. I have used it since it has been released and it has yet to fail me.
Also, you can put in ports to scan with this little guy. Typically when I look for default print servers I scan for ports 21,23 and 80. This is not foolproof but certainly effective on small LANs.
