Using nmap

This is the second method to find the ip address of the raspberry pi. We need to install nmap before this. I am using a Mac OS X so I will install it with brew.

brew install nmap

In Linux:

apt-get install nmap

or

yum install nmap

After installing nmap you need to execute the following command. You can replace subnet range with your subnet range.

nmap -sn 192.168.1.0/24

You will get output something like this.

Host is up (0.0010s latency).
Nmap scan report for raspberrypi (192.168.1.7)

So the IP address of raspberry pi is 192.168.1.7
