Windows 7: How to list All Computers in Network through CMD

How to list All Computers in Network through CMD

Hi,
I have used the cmd command "net view" to attempt to list all computers in the network.

However, net view appears to list only the computers that lie in the current domain.

What command could I use to list all the computers that appear on the network, in any domain?

I was even thinking of running "dir" on something like My Network Places or something like that but I don't really know how to do that.

Is there a command I can use to list all computers and not just current domain?

Also, I would prefer not to download a third party program or exe to do that.

Please let me know if you can help!!

ThePrince, here's the problem, well not really a problem it's a security issue by design! In order to view pc in a domain "your" pc has to be a member of that domain. To accomplish that you have to have a "trust" between your domain and the domain(s) you which to see. Hence the security of domains! Beyond this your talking hacking into others networks, that I know of! Keep in mind, this is just one techs opinion!

Take care!

If that were true, how come I can see all computers using the Windows Explorer?

When I go to Network Places I can see computers which aren't in my domain. I want to be able to display these computers in CMD as well, just like I can do with explorer. Does that mean Windows Explorer is hacking into other networks? I certainly hope not!

I am not talking about CONNECTING to these computers. That is an entirely different issue. I just want to display them like the Explorer does.

net view /domain:[enter domain name here] You can list, then change domains. multi domain net view doesn't work.
