Running XP Pro SP2. How can I find out the host name associated with an IP? I ping an IP and I only get Reply from IP address without any host name.

do Dns and Wins work correctly? if they are, it is easy to get the assoication between IP and host.

So if you ping IP you get response only from IP and it does not resolve the name.
But if you do
c:\>ping -a [ipaddress]
It attempts a DNS reverse lookup query to check the PTR record for the IP address and it its able to reson it give you the name.
other places to look for the already resolve Name- IP association is using
ipconfig/displaydns -This is for DNS
nbtstat-c - This is for nebios.
nslookup has already been discussed
