Is it possible to make a broadcast “ping” to all hosts on the LAN using the Net::Ping module? When running:
$foundhosts = $p->ping($host);
- I would like “$host” to be the broadcast address and “$foundhosts” an array of answering hosts on the LAN.

Also glad for tips how to get the default gateway for ‘localhost’ using Perl.

Pleased for any suggestions - APe
