Host Name though Command prompt


P

Prem Soni

Dear All,

Is there any command in Windows XP or 2000 in which i can get Host Name of
any system by providing IP Address over the LAN in workgroup not in Domain.
Just like when we ping any host name, we can get ip address of the same
machine, in the same way can we get Host Name with any command or something
like that..

I knows only one command "nslookup" that is not giving what i want.
Pls reply...

Thanks
PREM SONI
