Locating unknown Raspberry Pi device in your Network

Just as a quick hint, once you have set up a new Raspberry Pi device (or probably any other device) which you don’t know, simply run the arp command to find out about your neighborhood.

Running

arp -a

will make usage of the ARP protocol and give you some interesting information about some devices in your network.

arp -a

In my very case, I was told, the newly installed Raspberry Pi got the IPv4 address 192.168.0.82.

  1. Fing is fun, too. I use it on my Android since it is wirelessly connected to the home network.
