I am trying to work out how to create a batch file that will scan my LAN and produce a file for each nic card maker it finds. I have asked many people and they say I should be looking at the arp command. I have studdied all the available switches and have encountered little success. Can anyone help????

I have seen a few scripts that can get you the MAC address of a card. Which you can then use to lookup the card's maker.

Is that what your interested in doing?

yes, thanks for the reply....

I managed to work it out using the arp -a command which gave me the ip adn MAC addresses. From this i wrote a script which did a lookup to a MAC address file I downl;oaded from the net and found out all of the network card makers for the pc's on my network, but it wasnt easy a nightmare infact.

But once again thanks for the reply
