on the command line, showing either a list of replying devices or a graphical permanent info, with the free Swiss File Knife for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Requires administrator rights, as the API calls used for ping don't work in a normal user context. Source code is available for self compile.
- download the free Swiss File Knife Base from Sourceforge.
- open the Windows CMD command line, Mac OS X Terminal or Linux shell.
- OS X : type mv sfk-mac-i686.exe sfk and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
- Linux: type mv sfk-linux.exe sfk    and chmod +x sfk then ./sfk
  OS X and Linux syntax may differ, check the help within the tool.

      and .150 in the .2 subnet
   sfk ping net 1 2 10
      ping whole subnets 1, 2 and 10, like
        192.168.1.1  to 192.168.1.254
