Cool Need to IP Recognize

Friend ,
Suppose I have simple network of 5 pc (using Linux). And they got ip from to . These ip are not fixed to use .Sometimes these ip are changed into different pc.
Now i need a cache or log file which helps me to recognize which ip is used in which pc ? Is any tools or software for this purpose in linux ?

There are two ways. First, from your description, your network is using DHCP so a new IP address is assigned to each computer after each reboot. You can run ifconfig eth0 (or whatever NIC each box is using) and this will tell you the IP address. Secondly, you could simply instruct your router to use static IP address so that the IP address would always be the same on each computer.

Hope this helps
