There is a machine on our network called owner-pc. I want to learn its ip address. I'm not sure which computer it is, and I don't want to trundle to each station to figure it out. When I ping it from the command line on a windows machine, I get something like this:

How can I figure this out?

Try ping -4 owner-pc

oops should have been an answer

nslookup owner-pc

Thats interesting. I wonder if you're using IPv6. It looks kinda like an IPv6 address.

yes its ipv6 thus ping -4 works or nslookup –  user33788 May 27 '10 at 20:19
    
I'm new to IPv6. I was not able to find a description of ping -4 on google. Does ping -4 convert an IPv6 address to IPv4? –  James T May 27 '10 at 21:21

sorry if I seemed scruffy, but no ping -4 just forces ping to use v4 addressing. –  user33788 May 27 '10 at 22:02
