IP Conflict

By PC_Techie, MCP ·
I need to find out which computer on a network has a particular IP address. I can't remember what the command is for searching an IP address for the computer name.

Anyone know what that command is?

Not working

by PC_Techie, MCP In reply to commands

Couldn't get it to work. I once used a command that when you entered the IP address (along with the command), it would also show what the computer name was. Someone on my network has one of my test IP addresses on their PC, but I don't know who.

Thank you,

Kevin

Both ways should work

by w2ktechman In reply to Not working

nslookup should give the comp name

nbtstat -a should give the comp name and MAC address

Am I doing it wrong

by PC_Techie, MCP In reply to Both ways should work

I enter nslookup <IP Address> and all I get is Server:
Address:

I does not display the computer name, which should start with an L.

What about nbtstat -a?

by w2ktechman In reply to Am I doing it wrong

nslookup should work, it was designed to query he DNS server for his reason. But, if it is no working, try nbtstat -a %ip address%
if neither are working, you may have a problem on your DNS server
