How to find a Hostname for an IP Address

  1. Click the Windows Start button, then “All Programs” and “Accessories.” Right-click on “Command Prompt” and choose “Run as Administrator.”
  2. Type “nbtstat -A %ipaddress%” at the command prompt in the black window that opens, substituting the IP address for “%ipaddress%
  3. Review the results and find the NETBIOS table. Locate a row where the type is “UNIQUE” and find the hostname of the computer in the “Name” column for that row.
