I'm trying to find the IP Address of a server in my network.

I only know the name shown in the Network tab.

I tried the following:

  • Browsing the list of known devices in the DHCP tab of my router
  • Using arp -a in terminal
  • Using nmap -sP … in terminal
  • Pinging the broadcast address in my network
  • Pinging every single possible IP address in the network

Merging the results of all these, I got a list of IP addresses from which I can remove some, knowing which devices they belong to, but I still got some addresses left where I don't know which device they belong to.

I need some way of selecting a given network device listed in the nautilus network tab and being abel to know the ip it uses.

Current list of devices shown in my network tab

  • I found a similar question at ubuntuforums. Maybe it helps – migrc Nov 25 '16 at 13:34
  • did you try nslookup? – Michael Saiz Nov 25 '16 at 14:08
  • @MichaelSaiz I did now, and it returns "** server can't find **: NXDOMAIN I tried with multiple devices. – Pit Nov 28 '16 at 6:48
  • @migrc it did help as far as I'm now pretty sure it's an Apple-device, but for the IP-Address, still no luck. – Pit Nov 28 '16 at 6:50
