Finding out which machine is currently using an IP?

aredubbya
We are on a network of around 100 PC's and are in the process of switching over to static IP addresses. I want to know if you can determine which machine has an IP address that I have just pinged.

Is there a command line in Command prompt that will do this?

    This command should help:

    nbtstat -A 192.168.1.199

    It will list the remote machine's name table, including the computer name.

    That was just what the doctor ordered. We are shifting from automatic to static IPs and I was in a fix. Thanks a lot.
