Thinking about it even if the host blocks ping then it will have to reply
to an arp request. so make a short script to clear the arp cache ('arp -a
-d' as root) then do your nmap -sP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/yyy and do an arp -a
which will list all the arp entries in your arp cache (should be every
host that responded to an arp request when you did the ping scan but maybe
pipe it through grep to only get the arps for ips in that range)
also arping may be of use.
