    This will work on IPv4 but not on an IPv6 network. a sub-net on IPv6 has 64 bits of address space in each sub-net. It would take a 1000 years for a fast computer to scan that IP range. I was hoping that there might be a reference to some Neighbor discovery tool to achieve this on an IPv6 network

    Using nmap is an active scan, but that’s not necessary for this purpose. All hosts arp to identify themselves to other hosts on the network, so simply displaying the arp table will show you what you want, instantly.

    arp -n | grep -v “incomplete\|Flags” | sort -V

    This is nice. Is there a command that will display (all live non assigned) available IP addresses in a network?
