    As header,
    I have forgotten how to get the IP addresses of everything on the LAN.
    IP addresses are given out by server.
    Thanks for any feedback.

    I expect the DHCP server will report the assigned addresses, but you
    didn't say what the server is ...

    You could scan your LAN. Here's a free scanner:

    I expect there's a page on the web admin that lists assigned IP
    addresses and related MAC addresses.

  5. Thought I'd have a look (lurking). Avira antivirus thinks it contains
    something nasty.

    I use:

    False positive, probably based on the fact that it's a network scanner
    (no surprises there then), or possibly that it's been used in a malware
    kit. I often check suspect files at to see
    what a load of different AV tools think, rather than relying on a
    single free scanner.
    Scored one hit as malware on virustotal, compared to five for ipscan,
    but I really don't think there's cause for concern with either of them.
