Action:

Requests an IP address from the Domain Name System (DNS). This is useful for debugging setup issues such as getting the IP number of the Client workstation or for testing the Client's ability to resolve a host name. It is similar to the operating system nsLookup command.

Syntax:

nslookup [host]  

Where host is the name of a host machine known to your local DNS server. Specifying a host value displays that host's IP number. If host is not specified, the IP number of the workstation on which the Client is running is displayed.

Specifying:

 nslookup google.com  

produces the following output:

Looking up IP number for: google.com  IP Number is: 74.125.226.233  


Specifying:

nsLookup  

produces the following output:

Looking up this workstation's IP number IP Number is: 198.242.244.3  

 

If the host is unknown, an error message is displayed.
