    I believe this is an easy one for you all, is there a way to plug in a username to find the ip address on the network, we are running DNS and I would like to find the ip address's easily if I don't have the users computer name or don't want to spend 15 minutes trying to explain to a user how to use ipconfig, can't this be done using NSLOOKUP?? Thanks. Btw I am running XP on a 2000 Server domain.

    Typically users on a network don't have an IP address, the computers do.

    So if you want to find the IP address of a computer, there are several utilities to do this for you. Although there are likely quite a few of them out there, two I've used are:

    SuperScan used to be free at:
