I need to find an IP address.

  pj123 13:40 06 Jun 2003

Can someone tell me how to "ping" to get an IP DNS address please.

Is this on your own machine?

If from a command prompt you do IPCONFIG /all you should get the information you need but that will only be relevent to the machine you are on at the time.

go to start/run and type cmd then at the prompt type tracert followed by the address of the site and hit enter.

Thanks guys. will try both. The reason for this request is: My friend in France has a new website click here but, apparently, no one in France can access it. I have tried it and have no problem. I have also asked about 12 people in the UK to try and they have no problem accessing it. the host has said that maybe the French ISP does not update the DNS settings very regularly and to try typing in the IP address instead of the www address. Would you like to try and tell me if you have a problem?

Tried your suggestion but got: this programme cannot be run from a DOS prompt.

We have now passed this to the French ISP to sort out, as, it appears, the only person who cannot access this site is the domain owner himself. Subject closed. Thanks for all the suggestions.
