If you want a more definitive result, I suggest using an old machine and a downloaded copy of Linux (it's freely available, as you may know) and then use the Nmap program to perform an in-depth IP scan. As long as you identify the range of IP addresses you're looking for, Nmap can provide a reasonably definitive answer to your question of which machines are advertising services to the general Internet public.
