How to find IP Address from HW Address

by Discordia In reply to How to find IP Address fr ...

There's not a really easy answer to this without more information: Are we talking about the hardware address of a machine that's connecting to yours? (if so try arp -a or netstat -a from a command prompt to report both the IP and physical address, and determine what port it's connecting to.)
Is this a machine on your physical network? If you're running a server, most will be able to scan for this from their DHCP/Client machine tables.

How to find IP Address from HW Address

This machine is on my physical network but it is not connecting to my computer.

The reason to ask this question is we brought the hardware and the hardware config is set to get IP from DHCP. But when I look at DHCP table, I cannot find it. And DHCP table is very hard to find because it shows only IP and machine name. If I want to know HW Address, I have to double click each IP. It takes so long time.

If you have any further suggestion, please let me know. Thanks.

Based on you extended explaination of the proposed result, I suggest you creat a reservation in the DHCP based on the wardware address. Then you can just "ipconfig /renew", and you will know the IP address. Also, if you "ipconfig /all" from the client it will identify its current IP
