Re: [fw-wiz] How to find hidden host within LAN

and i can find his mac address througth ARP,
If you use Managed Switches, you should be able to show the mac-address-table,
and see on which switch and port your filesharer is connected.

I can't
traceroute it.
Traceroute only shows Hops (Routers) if the host is in the same lan,
traceroute is the same as ping.

Can someone help me to find this hidden host?
If you have unmanaged switches, and not much traffic, a very simple way would
be to generate some traffic to this host (hping3) and look which switchports
are flashing.
Or the hard way, pull some plugs.
