    Default A little bit of help

    Hello Backtrack Community-
    I am new to the backtrack community, and I have just one question. I struggle with the problem of gathering ip addresses on the local wifi network. I connected to the said wifi network, and would like to know how to gather the client ip's on it to initiate an attack. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but the router ip can be gathered through ifconfing?

    As a side note- This is my own wifi, and my own computers that I am using to learn. I am trying to learn, and I have bought two books on linux. I just need a push in the right direction.

    Thank you. I won't ask another type of question like this. Just please answer this one for me.

    Since you're trying to learn I'll give you a hint about the solution that will point you in the right direction for further research. I find this is a much better way to get the information to stick if you have to discover it yourself.

    And the hint is: DHCP or sniffing, and then based on the results from that - host scanning.

    And for the routing address, look into 'man route' or 'man netstat'.

    Try sniffing the network for hosts. You should find all the IP addresses you need

    I thought Nmap would be the program to use.....

    Considering all you want is a host/port scan, which Nmap does do very efficiently.

    Is it -sP?
    I thought I usually used nmap -sn *IP range here*.

    But then again, I'm probably wrong.

    See, this is what happens when people are spoon fed. Try this, man nmap and or google nmap.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
