I need to know the ip address of another machine in a lan network.

What is the Windows command for getting ip address from machine name and vice versa?

A machine with machine name "accounting" and ip "192.168.1.95"

IP -> Machine Name:

tracert 192.168.1.95

or

NBTSTAT  -a 192.168.1.95

Machine Name -> IP

nslookup accounting

or

ping accounting

    ping -a can also be used to convert IP to hostname

in window 7 and later versions. to find ipv4 ip by hostname you can try following methods.

For ipv4 (192.168.1.2):

ping hostname -4

For ipv6 (0000:0000:0000:0000:0000):

ping hostname -6
