ping -a 111.222.33.44
(if it's registered in DNS)

nbtstat -a ipaddress

nslookup 111.222.33.44

Those are all good answers.  The rest are not.  No need to answer since they excist except the poor guy has to find them mingled in poop.  My suggestion is to not write an answer if you don't know it.

Not trying to be an ass, but I know it'll come off that way.

Open the command prompt, and type ping "computername" (without the quotes)
You'll get the ip-address.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

If you want to know the IP address and want to know the computer name. And if you have Windows 2000 then open command prompt and type:"ipconfig /all" without qoutations. navigate to "host name" and then you'll read there the computer name.

ummm  most of the answers here don't answer this guy's question, but some do.  Like the answer...ping "computername"....he said he wants to find out the computer name so how can he ping it.  EFA rights " If you want to know the IP address and want.."  He said he knows the IP.  

Just like to find answers here or help people out and dislike seeing silly replies.

Actually I wrote something wrong. What I meant is that Ipconfig /all will give you the computer name also. I'm sure that if you have Win2k or XP this command will give you the computer name.

IF you type IP config all you would have to be on the machine he is trying to identify...at that point you should just go into the computer properties and look at the name.

No problem at all, I was a bit too quick when I answered, so that's why I made a mistake.

Have a nice weekend

I actually figured yours was a typo since you noted nbtstat...which I'd say is a fairly advanced way of checking.  Most newbies don't know of nbtstat or what it references.

You have a nice weekend too.

From this threads ass :)
