Suppose that I am in a LAN with the following parameters:
IP: 172.16.20.X NETMASK: 255.255.252.0 GATEWAY: 172.16.20.1 DNS: 172.16.20.1
In order to connect to my LAN, I have to find, quickly, the first IP available, this means find a value for X which is NOT ALREADY TAKEN by another user of the same LAN.
Which method do you suggest to use?
Assumption: I am using WINDOWS 7 Operating System.
