Under cmd prompt type :

nbtstat -A 202.44.32.10

It will gives you computer name, mac adress, group and the user logged in on the station (if someone is logged of course).

Try nbtstat /? for more switches :)

issue the command ping -a 202.44.32.10 which should help you find the culprit.

this works if you configured a reverse lookup zone in DNS. Be sure you activate the "create Pointer record" option when adding computer to DNS.

tracert 202.44.32.10
would also supply the name and show you what devices(routers, etc) you go through to get to that device)

Yes but tracert and ping -a give the DNS name, nbtstat gives the Windows computer's name and group you enter while installing.
