Exercise: Find the Target IP Address for Testing in a Local Organization

Tools needed: netdiscover or angryip scanner

Step 1: Make sure you have netdiscover or angryip scanner installed on your
computer. If not, install the tool using the appropriate instructions for your
operating system.

Step 2: Open a terminal or command prompt window.

Step 3: If you are using netdiscover, run the following command to scan for live
hosts on your network:

netdiscover -r [network range]

Replace “[network range]” with the range of IP addresses that you want to
scan. For example, if you want to scan the range of IP addresses from to, you would use the following command:

netdiscover -r

Step 4: If you are using angryip scanner, open the tool and select the “Scan”
tab. Enter the range of IP addresses that you want to scan in the “Range” field
and click the “Start” button to begin the scan.

Step 5: Wait for the scan to complete. The tool will display a list of all the live
hosts it has found on the network.

Step 6: Find the target IP address in the list of live hosts. This is the IP address
that you will use for testing in your local organization.

Step 7: Once you have found the target IP address, you can use it to connect to
the device or network device that it belongs to and perform testing as needed.
