Can you see it in Explorer > Network and command prompt > ipconfig?

I'm not sure what you mean by Explorer > Network and command prompt > but when I type ipconfig in cmd it doesn't show up.

Windows Explorer > Network can be viewed by clicking Network on the left side navigation pane:



Highlighted part of Explorer screenshot above shows computers belonging to same subnet.

Command ipconfig /all in Command Prompt also shows computers and devices in your network.

If your device is not shown in these, it will not belong to same subnet or as UsernameIssues has told previously in this thread it is hidden from network. In this case you need to change network settings on your device (Blackberry).

I have absolutely no knowledge of Blackberries so I can not help you in that.

Oh, no it doesn't show up. It shows up in my router though.

The only way to see everything on a network is to scan it with tools like nmap and use the network ID as your target.

Thank you taking the time to explain. I was probably overly concerned with those that find this thread via Google after some frustrating searches of my own that led to one dead end after another.

Than you guys for the input. This is very useful.

I do agree, Kari is a star.

May I have another question? How to have the IP address of the machines (exclusively the machines)?

Best

Jamal

The only command I know to show IPs of all networked PCs is ipconfig /all.

If your dns server is setup correctly. You should be able to use

nslookup FQDN

FQDN= fully qualified domain name.

Find your fqdn with
echo %COMPUTERNAME%.%USERDNSDOMAIN%


example from work:
C:\Documents and Settings\CParman>echo %COMPUTERNAME%.%USERDNSDOMAIN%
CPARMAN-8DFCMF1.CORP

update:
%USERDNSDOMAIN% only works on a domain

So you can get it with the ipconfig /all output.

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\CParman>ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

        Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : cparman-8dfcmf1
        Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . : CORP
