IP Address Question

by dpenrice In reply to IP Address Question

I'm not quite sure I understand your question. Is it meant to be "who" and not "how"?

But this might help :- from a Workstation or Server Command Prompt, type NBTSTAT -a xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (x=ip address)

This will show you a list of computers andgroups plus the mac address assigned to that IP address.

I hope this helps.

Dave.

Open a command prompt and type the following:

ipconfig

This will display a summary of the IP address, mask, and gateway that is assigned to each network adapter. For more details on each adapter, type "ipconfig /all" instead of "ipconfig".

If you are running WINS, you can go to WINS Manager and click Mappings, then Show Database. Click the tab to sort by IP Address and scroll down the list to find the IP address. On one of the lines associated with that IP Address, you'll see the username of the account currently using that IP.

How does this work in reverse for resolving a name to an IP address?

Thanks,

You can perform an NSLOOKUP from the command prompt for the IP address - which should pull the name, IF you have reverse lookup enabled. You can also do this in reverse, by using NSLOOKUP to find the machine name and it will pull up the ip address(es) associated with that name.

c>nslookup monster
or
c>nslookup 1.2.3.4
uses your configured DNS server to pull the IP address. This is what you have configured on the DNS tab in the TCP/IP properties window.
