Find your NAS server in your network

In one of my posts I described how to configure the Icybox NAS 4220. One of the main problems was to find the Icybox in my network. The software Raidsonic offered on the cd was a windows-only software and despite the fact that I could use it with WINE, it still did not find the Icybox in the network. So I had to boot Windows Vista (which came with the notebook).

However, as I had to find the Icybox 4220 again today I did some research how to find it with Linux and someone on http://www.ubuntuusers.de gave me the answer 3 minutes after my question was posted (!!!).

You should install the programm “nmap” and then run the following code:
nmap -sP xxx.xxx.x.*
This will show you all devices (servers, nas, computers) in your network.
