VNCCSL.EXE is a free command line utility which can automatically discover any host running VNC Server on a given network.
Extract all files from the zip file to a folder on your computer (%windir% for example). Then open a command-line box and just launch the program.
The syntax to use VNCCSL from the command line is:
VNCCSL </i:www.xxx.yyy.zzz> </p:Prefix mask> </o:[csv,ssv,tab]> </n<:n>> </r> </t:TCP Port> </m> </s> </v> </q> </h>
||www.xxx.yyy.zzz is the network or the IP address part of the IP network subnet to
||Prefix bits number using the x.x.x.x/mask notation. Default is 24
||Output format (default is tab)
||Use local IP subnet network ID associates with Nic "n". If no Nic # and no IP subnet are specified VNCCSL will use the first Nic Address
||TCP_port is the VNC TCP Port to use
||Don't resolve hostname
||Get host mac address
||Quiet mode, turn all verbose off
You can also use an environment variable to store the parameters your most currently used options:
c:\>set VNCCSL_PARAMETERS=/m /v
If %VNCCSL_PARAMETERS% exists in the environment var list, VNCCSL will use it automatically when run. You can also store the complete parameters list into that var if you want:
c:\>set VNCCSL_PARAMETERS=/m /v /i:198.162.20
Will scan the local IP subnet associates with Nic #1 using a 24 bits prefix mask.
c:\>vnccsl /n:2 /p:24
Will scan the local IP subnet associates with Nic #2 using a 24 bits prefix mask.
c:\>vnccsl /i:192.168 /p:26
Will scan the complete 192.168 IP subnet using a 26 bits prefix mask.
