Try AspDns - does dns lookup and reverse lookup.

I need to do this from within access. I am looking to use IP's from one database and load another database with the results via visual basic.

I might be wrong, but to my knowledge: This component is contained in a DLL which will register nicely on your computer and be available from your VB project just as easily as from a VBScript project.
