    Find Host names of all computers on LAN


    Hi folks

    when file explorer doesn't show all computers on a Lan is there any script that I can use to find the HOSTNAMES / COMPUTER NAMES when I can get their IP addresses

    I can get the IP address easily enough (nmap / arp or similar) but from IP address any way to get the host names.

    For example (I've shown in a GUI application since it's easier to display the problem than console output) :

    There's 3 computers I'm interested in -- a Windows QEMU VM and the other 2 with Not available in the Manufacturers name in the list shown.

    All on a LOCAL lan

    The reason I want this is that with latest fast build rings file browsing via file explorer either only shows Windows machines or only the actual Windows host itself - no non Windows machines such as NAS servers are visible. Windows networking does this from time to time so it's better to have a reliable method not dependent on File explorer.

    Cheers

    Good LAN party games?

    Most of my suggestions have already been listed.

    However, I found Swat4 to actually be a pretty fun LAN game, especially at smaller LAN parties.

  3. change windows 10 pc name

    We appreciate you getting back to us. To change the cmd name, we suggest that you follow this steps:

    • Open a Command Prompt (Adimin) window: Win+X, A, Alt+Y
    • Then run the following command to change your computer name to Donner: WMIC ComputerSystem where Name=COMPUTER-NAME call Rename Name=NewName
    • Reboot your PC.
    • Try to run ipconfig / all command, you should find that the Host Name in Windows IP Configuration list has been changed to the new name.

    Keep us posted with the result.

    computers with same name on LAN problem

    Hi there

    If I have two computers on a LAN with the same name Windows can't see the rest of the network but only the individual computer you are logged on to.

    All these machines connected via Ethernet cable (not wireless).

    Windows 10 PRO x-64 latest standard build (not insider - not tested this "feature" on that yet).

    Change the name then all computers are visible.

    I'm sure this must be a defect -- there's no reason on a LAN with several computers people might have called their computers by the same name !!! (Note computer name not description).

    Cheers
