Using the Resolve Host IP Address tool

If you select the option “Resolve Host IP Address …” from the Tools menu in TCP-Com, the following dialog box will appear:

The above dialog box allows you to resolve the IP Address of a computer from either its local workstation name or its Internet domain name. For example, suppose that you have a Windows network and each workstation has been assigned a unique Computer Name. If you know the name of a workstation in your network but you do not know its IP Address, you can resolve the IP Address from the computer name using the above dialog. (If you look in your “Network Neighborhood” window in Windows, each workstation will be listed using the name of the computer however the IP Address for each workstation will not be shown nor is there an easy way to determine the IP addresses of individual workstations with any of the tools provided with Windows.)

The IP Address of most Internet domain names can also be resolved using the above dialog box. For example, to find out the IP Address for the computer that is hosting Google, you would enter “www.google.com” for the Host Name and then click the “Resolve” button to obtain the IP Address.

Note: TCP-Com will allow you to use computer names or Internet domain names for the IP Address therefore you do not need to specify a true IP Address when configuring a TCP-Com and can instead use the computer’s workstation name or an internet URL in place of the IP Address.

To resolve the IP Address of the workstation where you are running TCP-Com (i.e. your own IP Address), leave the Host Name text box blank and click the “Resolve IP Address” button.

To return to the main TCP-Com window, click the Cancel button.
