i have a server running in my LAN and i don't know the server address.
i plan to get all available IP addresses in my network and then try to open socket connection to each of them.
on successful connection, i'll assume that IP address is the one I'm looking for.
the problem is, how do i get the available IP Address within my LAN network?...
