In Unix, how do I look up IP addresses?
nslookup machine-name.domain.name host machine-name.domain.name dig machine-name.domain.name
machine-name with the name of the computer you
want to look up, and
domain.name with the rest of that
Note the following:
- Some newer Unix and Linux distributions do not include
nslookupcommand, and instead use either
digto look up IP addresses.
- Not all Internet nodes can be resolved into IP addresses by these commands.
At Indiana University, for personal or departmental Linux or Unix systems support, see At IU, how do I get support for Linux or Unix?
