In this tutorial we are going to use Nmap in Kali Linux to scan the network for live hosts. You can use the command ifconfig to determine which IP range you will be scanning for live hosts. We will be using a ping scan on a range of possible live hosts in our network. Nmap will be pinging each host in this range to determine whether the host is live or not.

Nmap scanning for live hosts

Start a ping scan for live hosts using the following command:

nmap -sP

Nmap will return a list of live hosts:


Add -v to your command to increase the verbosity of the ping scan:

nmap -sP -v

This will return all scanned hosts with their status.
