Question ID: 277020
We have a 250 user network running on Win2k and recently installed SonciWall Pro300 security appliances to, i.e., monitor internet usage. Most webusage stats include only an IP address, such as 22.214.171.124 What are the best ways to resolve these addresses so that we can tell what sites users are visiting?

There are several ways to find out whatīs behind IP addresses. 1. On a W2k system I use a nice program called dbzNetBuddy which may do all you need. Itīs avaiable at: ( http://www.division-by-zero.de/dbz/index.asp?main=/dbz/tools/netbuddy_main_eng.htm&headergif=tools ) The queries you can do with this program include a "whois" search which will lead you to the server address of a given IP. Often you will be lead to the address of a webhosting company as many webpages are not hosted on own servers but on webspace of an internet service provider. The program has some more options you might find usefull. 2. If you prefer an online solution (which is nice if you do not want ro install any software on you pc) please visit Zoneedit at: ( http://www.zoneedit.com/lookup.html ) All you got to do there is enter the IP you want to look up in the box "Reverse Lookup" and you will get the server information examples: IP 126.96.36.199 will reveal to be the pages of ebay.com IP 188.8.131.52 will lead to the yahoo.com pages IP 184.108.40.206 will lead to the internet service provider where my webpage is hosted. I hope this helps to solve you problem. till-ga Search strategy: none, I knew those solutions as I use them every day.
