How can I find out the computer name?
Often many usersthe need to find the right computer (for example, you have a local network and you are a system administrator). But you have only an IP address, as when working on a network, computers do not have names, only their addresses. There are several ways to find out the computer name using only its IP address. This can be done both with the Windows shell (command line) and with special programs.
First of all, you need to be completely surein the correctness of the IP address. After that, use the "Start" menu and type "cmd" in the "Run" line. After launching the command line, you must enter "Nslookup". In the special form that will be available, enter the IP address instead of zeros and press "Enter". Thus, through the command line you can find out the name of the computer by IP.
You can also find the computer name by IP address withusing the program 10-Strike LANState (not necessarily use this program), which you can download. After uninstalling and installing this utility, run it. In principle, the meaning of the operation is identical with the command line, in the field (information search) enter the IP address. The indicator, which will glow red, signals the processing of the data you entered. After the indicator changes color to green, you can see the information on the computer found on the network.
