Satya's blog - One ping only
Today I wanted to ssh to a box sitting across the room but didn't know its hostname or IP address. So I figure I could ping xxx.xx.107.255 and see what responds. A nicer thing to do would be to ping each IP in the range (only 254 possibilities, of which I can rule out my own and a couple of others) once.
