You could try this.

When you send a packet to another machine in the LAN, the 10.x   
address is one of the params, so you could do a 'who am I' to any of  
the other computers.  Just give every computer on the network the  
ability to respond with that info.

One machine could be set with a manual IP and the others dynamic.
