What command can I use to get a list of IP addresses used by Ubuntu systems in LAN network?


You can use nmap to get a list of ip's that are up:

nmap -sP

To find out if they are Ubuntu systems is harder. You can use a portscan (-sS, -sT or -sF for instance) and the -O option.

This does require you to have admin privileges, so you'd do something like

sudo nmap -sT -O

For ranges (the 0/24 part) and the options, you can check out the manpage of nmap.

  • I don't think that asking how to find servers on another OS would be ontopic? – Nanne Dec 14 '12 at 12:46

Try nmap -sP -A
