Tracert

By lheisey ·
In W2K, tracert will give me the host name if I enter the IP and the IP if I enter the host name. Why doesn't that do the same in XP and what do to get the host name from an IP address?

I apparently did not make that clear enough. When I am sitting at a server and want to see whose workstation is coming up by IP on some report, I used to use tracert with the IP address and it would return the name associated with that address. I want to do the same on XP. But the name and IP are not on the station I am initiating the trace from.

If you are running a STATIC IP address make sure the DNS is correct.....

What do you mean make sure the DNS is correct.... the DNS on workstations points to the server hosting DNS

Something in your network setup is wrong then. All my XP machine will resolve to a host name and vice versa. Are you running multiple DNS or WINS.....
