Scan IP local network. WiFi. ping. id neighbour. Web servers

Three ideas for scanning a network.

1.- Using the ping command:

ping -c 1

[-c 1 -------> sends 1 packet]

This method is slow, it takes about 4 seconds to check each IP, so 20 IPs would check them in 80 seconds.

2.- Command ip neighbour show

We obtain the IP and Mac of the devices, but devices have to be previously identified.
For example you run this command you get several IPs. You do a ping scan, and you run ip neighbor again, you will get more IPs since they have been recognized.

It needs the Terminal extension.

3.- Check if the IP is a web server.

Requesting a web file through the Web component. If the IP is a web server it will send us an error file of type text/html, if it is not a server we will get an "Unable to get".

KIO4_SimpleWebServer is a different extension than the one used in this topic.

To send a message, try...
