Determining IP Address Inventory

I am in the process of cleaning up IP address assignments
on a network which was previously only "semi-managed". It
think that NetView and PortScan can help, but there are a
couple of things that I haven't been able to figure out:

1. If I use PortScan to try to locate all addresses in use
in our range, and select port 7 (Echo), I only see the NT
servers. Is there a different port that I can use to find
anything which will respond to a Ping?

2. If I do a NetScan for NETBios names, I only see nodes
which have shares open. I know, for example, that there
are two IP addresses in use, in a range which I wish to
reserve for another purpose -- but I have no idea which
devices are on those addresses. Does your software give me
a way to find this information?

If possible, please e-mail me with the answers.
