Macos – How to scan the local network for connected devices? (Mac OS)


I'm basically looking for something like this but available on Mac.

I am trying to connect a new workstation to our wireless multifunction printer and I'm having a hell of a time getting the device to spit out an IP for me to connect to.

Is there a way I can scan the network somehow?

If it makes a difference, the new workstation is using Mac OS X 10.6.

  1. Ping the broadcast address
