At my place of employment, each employee is given a range of ten IP addresses to use for his/her machines. I have the range xx.xx.6.1-xx.xx.6.10. My problem is I want to use xx.xx.6.6 but something else on the network is already occupying that address. This machine responds to ICMP but not to SSH or RDP. I would like to determine what operating system this machine is running (and possibly the kind of machine i.e server,desktop,switch,etc.) before going to my superiors about the issue. What is the best way to determine this information?
Oh and nslookup responds with this (blah.blah.blah.blah is our DNS server):
*** blah.blah.blah.blah can't find xx.xx.6.6: Non-existent domain
and tracert responds with this:
1 17 ms 8 ms 7 ms xx.xx.6.6 Trace complete.
