This question already has an answer here:

I often share my MacBook Pro's Ethernet connection with devices like a Raspberry Pi to log in via SSH and configure files without using a screen, keyboard, etc.

My current method to find the IP is to ping the hostname. Example: Ping raspberrypi.local.

Recently, I have ran into problems where the hostname is unknown of the device, and I need to login, finding it's IP.

So, I try the command-line utility fing, which scans for devcies on your local network, but I had no luck finding the device. Fing seemed to only show devices that were on my wireless network.

Are there any suggestions to find local IP addresses of devices I plug into my Ethernet jack?

  • There are a lot of possible applications. Have you tired with: IP Scanner. With this you can even choose the interface to scan. I guess is way you are interesting in. – Mattia Mar 29 '16 at 14:42
  • Thanks, I will try that. A terminal solution with no additional software would be nice too. – Skyler 440 Mar 29 '16 at 14:47
  • In that case, here is what you are looking: link1, link2. You can use arp. – Mattia Mar 29 '16 at 14:51
