In Unix, how can I find out the domain name associated with an IP number?
To find the domain name associated with an IP number, use
nslookup command. At the Unix
shell prompt, enter
nslookup followed by the
IP address, for example:
This command will return the following information:Server: ns.indiana.edu Address: 126.96.36.199 Name: ns2.indiana.edu Address: 188.8.131.52
You can also specify a hostname on the command line to find out its IP number.
You can use the
nslookup command interactively. For more
information, at the Unix shell prompt, enter:
