I want to display a list of computers accessible on my local network. My first idea is this: 1) Obtain my IP address & network mask 2) Then send a ping sweep across my subnet to obtain a list of possible machines.
At the minimum, I want to support SMB & linux machines. Can anyone point me to resources on how to understand what ports can be used to identify a machine's Operating system? Thanks for any suggestions.
