Lan Scan-Without Raw_Sockets.

Hi all,

I was wondering if its at all possible to scan a LAN for live hosts getting the IP and MAC without using raw sockets(without root)?

I'm not sure as to the best way to do that, but you could always pull information from your arp cache and then ping your whole subnet. The computers that respond could be matched to their MAC addresses that way. I suppose the usefulness of that would depend on the reason why you don't want to use raw sockets.
