I have been asked for the hostname of an ipaddress and for an ipaddress for a hostname on intranet, but can't get access to servers.
I am in a corporate environment and have requested access to certain servers through the firewall. The infrastructure engineer has asked for hostnames for the two ipaddresses I provided and for one server I had the name but he wants the ipaddress.
Not being big on networking I don't want to make a fool of myself so what should I do? My idea of getting the hostname would be to log onto the server, find the hosts file and beside the ip would be the server hostname. But why am I being asked for this if I cannot even access the server yet??
