    as it is your first post on the forums; get used to being told to google simple things for yourself before asking, here. if you are going to ask these sorts of questions; you will be the boy that cried wolf too many times, when you actually need real assistance. basic os related information should be looked for elsewhere and is easily accessible information if you even have a hope in hell of learning any B|T related subject matters.

    this is a post by a user who is also new to linux asking the same question,in a thread; in a far more appropriate place. one you would have found in 1 simple search string.

    Not really the same question actually. That link you posted is about idle users in Linux, the OP is asking about detecting systems with an idle IP stack (e.g. systems that aren't communicating on the network very much).

    @OP - Have you read about how the idle scan in nmap works? Do so now, right here. After understanding how the scan works, you should then know how an idle machine would react once you interact with it directly, and then you just need to find the most appropriate way of probing it and reviewing the results. There is one particular value in the response (or multiple response preferably) you need to look for and there are multiple ways you could choose to view it...

    Note that Im not spoonfeeding here because the IDLE scan is an advanced scan type and you should understand how it works before you use it so you can interpret the results properly AND understand its limitations and the potential for errors.

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    SABRI4EVER I don't think you understood the response given by Lupin above. I would highly encourage you to re-read it.
    Also read the link he gave as well.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.

    Well if you don't know how to find idle IP's on a network you definately should start with some basics at first.

    Get a copy of Ubuntu, install it, learn it and love it.
    Also get a book about TCP/IP, DNS and other network topics. Once you know that stuff start using Backtrack and research the tools and how to use them. Most of them will be self explanatory once you learned the basics. Else they will just pose a too big distraction for you.
