Re: Lookup of IP Address
From: Martin <marty () supine com>

Is there publicly available a means of looking up an IP address - e.g. it's
ISP or DNS?

first, try to find out if a reverse lookup returns anything...

nslookup 111.222.111.222

if that doesn't return anything, you will then need to look for the netblock
owner. plug the IP into the whois search engines at these three sites:

www.apnic.net - Asia Pacific NIC
www.ripe.net - Europe NIC
www.arin.net - American NIC

this will show who has leased that range of IPs, but be aware that they may
have subleased them to someone else.

later
