IP address and Common Name

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Sm9lVA==?=, Mar 8, 2005.

  1. On my subnet, I can ping an addres ( and it shows that it is
    being used. Is the a command that I can use to find out what the common name
    of what is using that address??? I am on a win2K domain. My DC is running
    DHCP. The person before me had 1 to 100 reserved as static IP address (the
    rest of the network uses dynamic addresses) but the list he left me was not
    complete. I am trying to figure out an easy way to search my network and
    update my labels.

    nbtstat -A XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (note the "A" is capitalized).

  3. Ping -a [ip#]
    NbtStat -a [ip#]

    Don't forget the "-a"
    Keep it lower case.

  4. It works even if lower case,..inspite of what the "NbtStat /?" says. I
    don't know way that is the case, but I always took advantage of it and just
    left it lower case. But doing it with Ping will only work with lower case,
    upper case won't work.
