There are various ways.Sending out a mail to the email address which
doesn't exists in the network,social engineering,use google for
determining domains thus ips etc etc.
to answer you anotehr question when you are in the inside the network
then you will not face much problems in disovering network information
but if you are outside then you have to put good efforts in it.

Hi list,

   I was wondering if there were special ways to discover networks
topologies / mapping networks.  Are there particular tools or methods I
should be aware of ?  The few tools I tried only gave me approximative
results.  However I think nmap + the standard unix tools can do a good part
of the job.

   Moreover, what are the differences between discovering an organisation's
network from the inside, and from the outside ?
I mean, what are the best practices to discover network equipments, subnets,
VPNs, etc?  I know that traceroute can be a good starting point, but are
there some other tools and techniques I should know ?
