You suspect that a machine on your network with the host name PRTSRV is issuing excessive broadcast traffic. What command can you use to determine this host’s IP address?

  1. a. netstat PRTSRV
  2. b. ipconfig PRTSRV
  3. c. nslookup PRTSRV
  4. d. ifconfig PRTSRV
  5. e. iptables PRTSRV

Program Description Answer

 After identifying the host name PRTSRV is issuing excessive broadcast traffic, the command “nslookup PRTSRV” is used to determine the host’s IP address on the network.

Hence, the correct answer is option “C”.

Explanation of Solution

nslookup:

  • The nslookup stands for name space lookup that allows the user to query the DNS (Domain Name Space) database from any computer on the network and identify the host name of a system by specifying its IP address, or vice versa.
  • This process is useful for validating that a host is configured properly or for troubleshooting DNS resolution problems.
  • For example, if the user wants to identify whether the host named “wikipedia.com” is operational, enter the command “nslookup wikipedia.com”.

Explanation for incorrect options:

netstat PRTSRV

 It displays TCP/ IP statistics and details about TCP/IP components and connections on a host.

Hence, the option “A” is wrong...
