In Windows, how can I find the IP address of another networked computer?
In Windows 8, 7, Vista, or XP, you can find the IP address
of another networked computer by using the
utility. Using the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of a
nslookup will query a DNS
server and return the IP address that corresponds to that
To find the IP address of another computer:
Win-r. In the "Open:" field, type
- At the command prompt, type
nslookupplus the domain name of the computer you want to look up, and press
Enter. For example, to find the IP address for www.indiana.edu, you would type: nslookup www.indiana.edu
This command will return the following information:Server: ns.indiana.edu Address: 220.127.116.11 Name: indiana.edu Address: 18.104.22.168
The first two lines show the domain name and IP address of the DNS server that answered the
nslookupquery. The next two lines show the domain name and IP address of the computer for which you were searching.
- When you're finished, type
Enterto return to Windows.
