Who's IP?

If we are working on a network, then how do we know the owner of the IP Address? We can using nbtstat command (if you are Windows user) to get the information about that IP. Only type this command below on your DOS prompt

nbtstat -A

And then the DOS prompt would echoing the information you entered. For example it look like this below :

Local Area Connection:
Node IpAddress: [] Scope Id: []

NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table

Name Type Status
GIA <00> UNIQUE Registered
MIS <00> GROUP Registered
GIA <20> UNIQUE Registered
MIS <1e> GROUP Registered

MAC Address = 00-11-09-97-AC-66

It describes that the owner of this IP Address is GIA and as a member of MIS workgroup/domain.
