Finding Rigs on Your Local Network

Just moved my rigs to a network setup for DHCP, and as a result I lost control of what-rigs-have-what-IP.

The way I got a handle on it was to use nmap from one of my Ubuntu machines.

I’ve got a mix of Ubuntu and Windows machines.

To locate, I do a scan for all machines running SSH (port 22) or RDP (port 3389) on my local network (192.168.3.XXX). Then I go through and look for hosts that report “open” for the ports of interest.

sudo nmap -sS -p 22
sudo nmap -sS -p 3389
