    Ping www.thewebsite.com will resolve the address for you.

    I'm not positive but you can either do a whois on that website or you can ping it... correct me if I'm wrong someone.

    thanx people for instant reply.

    well, ping is not working neither nslookup,tracert,telnet or any such command.

    first let me tell u config of my system,

    i work on a public computer which is w2k workstation attached to w2k server,on user accounts. i`m not sure there may be firewall at the back. as i don`t have any admin priviledges i cannot change any of the settings except which r allowed to users.

    i tried to ping on www.yahoo.com(say) but it showed "unknown host message".

    A firewall is definetly at hand. The reason I conclude is that you CAN access yahoo over port 80 I assume but your firewall is disabling echo packets. My suggestion is...while connected to the website on IE or whatever, run netstat and check for you connections on port 80. Naturally, one of the addresses has to correlate to the website.

    Scat
    If the scatman can do it so can you.

    Unknown host means that it does not resolve through DNS. That being the case you got there by a redirection from somewhere else. Go back to the point that you entered this site from and try pinging that domain name. If it pings look at the link that took you to the page you want to find out about. Viewing the source may show you something like http://192.168.1.1/index.html If it does then you know the IP of the site. If it doesn't then the next page is probably doing an auto redirect. You need to capture that page and examin the source.

    Stupid question: Are you doing this while online?

    See my son....if you are online, DNS must be working. Now instead on doing an "-an" switch on netstat, Just do a "netstat" and any 'active connections will show up. The key here is...you must be connected to the site...via IE. Hope that helps....

    [edit]
    If you are using the 2k kernel...it doesn't show as port '80' it displays 'http'
