How to Find another IP address

Hi Guys,

I want to find another(Local host) machine IP address from my machine.. We are all connected in the same server, I mean same LAN.

What i done is
Connected with that user machine using SSH and SU.. After that i used IFCONFIG but it shows my Ip address. Can not able to get the destination machine IP address. How could i do that???

---------- Post updated at 09:54 AM ---------- Previous update was at 09:38 AM ----------

Is there any other command to find..??

Try the arp -a command. It will list all the ip addresses on your LAN that you recently connected to:
Code:
arp -a
router.sthg.de (10.1.1.254) at 00:05:b4:03:27:34 [ether] on eth0

You can use following command to list the Foreign Addresses connected to your server:-

Code:
netstat -n
