I think you mean the individual ip address for a specific port? If your cisco equipment handles your dhcp you can find out by connecting to the switch via the blue cable that has ethernet on one side and serial on the other. If your server handles your dhcp then the switch will not know what the address is.

well, sure, but he said switchport, you can not have an IP address on a layer2 switch, that is why I want clarification.

Yes.... I need to get a specific port number for a specific IP address.
I can do a SHOW  MAC-ADDRESS ADDRESS XXXX.XXXX.XXXX and it will give me the assigned port.  But how can I get the assigned port if I only have the IP address?  What switch command can I use?

If there is any other questions, here is a better example:

agr01.den03#show arp | include 10.169.98.5
Internet  10.169.98.5            45   0080.cb49.093d  ARPA   Vlan811
agr01.den03#show mac-address address 0080.cb49.093d
Legend: * - primary entry
        age - seconds since last seen
        n/a - not available

  vlan   mac address     type    learn     age              ports
------+----------------+--------+-----+----------+--------------------------
Active Supervisor:
*  811  0080.cb49.093d   dynamic  Yes          5   Gi4/13
