In Windows, how can I find the IP address of another networked computer?

Using the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of a networked computer, nslookup will query a DNS server and return the IP address that corresponds to that domain name.

In Windows 10 and earlier, to find the IP address of another computer:

  1. Open a command prompt.
    Note:
    For help navigating, see Getting around in Windows.
  2. Type nslookup plus 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:  129.79.1.1
    
      Name:    indiana.edu
      Address:  129.79.1.61

    The first two lines show the domain name and IP address of the DNS server that answered the nslookup query. The next two lines show the domain name and IP address of the computer for which you were searching.

  3. When you're finished, type exit and press Enter to return to Windows.
