ID IP address w/computer on LAN

By DouglasB ·
Is there a "free" utility to identiy an IP address with the workstation on a LAN? I want to enter the IP address and have the program give me the name of the workstation it is associated with. Thanks!

Do a search on Google for: advancedremoteinfo download
I think this free program is just what you want.

If you're talking about casual command-line queries, the ping command will return this information. Simply type "ping -a" and the IP address you want to query. For example:

ping -a 10.0.0.10

will return the computer name of the machine that has that IP address on the first line of the ping response.

This assumes, of course, that you have name resolution available on the network through either WINS or DNS.

Hope this helps!

At a command prompt type nslookup followed by a computer name or an ip address.

to go on the highend side you could get somthing like 3com network admin
it makes a map of your current network, hostnames ips printers etc. but that is a little overboard for some.
