Good day Experts -
A quandry for you. My company uses static IP addresses for a small number of specific computers so we can lock down their Internet access. We have a few reserved IP addresses in a separate range that my team can temporarily use for admin work, which allow basically unrestricted Internet access.
In this case, we used the address 192.168.1.39 on a computer, but apparently forgot to change it back to what it should be. I'm trying to track down what computer this was, so I can fix this problem.
So, I use nslook 192.168.1.39 (also tried another 3rd party utility) and I get a host name. Now the fun starts. I hop out to that computer to fix this and it is using the IP address that it should have (which is 192.168.1.18 for the record).
I can ping this hostname and it returns 192.168.1.18. Also, I get replies when I ping 192.168.1.39. So... .39 is apparently hidden somewhere?
Windows computers, running XP Pro btw.
