Is TCPNameToIP susposed to report the Reverse DNS?

5 posts in this topic

something like....

#include <inet.au3>
$sIp = TCPNameToIP("shiftbid.dyndns.ws")
$sResult = _TCPIpToName ($sIp)

MsgBox(0,"IP Addy", $sResult)

is giving me the full reverse dns name of the IP addy not the ip itself (something like pool-71-123-215-151.dllstx.fios.verizon.net)... yes i could pull the IP out of that but i'm not positive every pool it might come out of would be in the same format so was hoping for something a bit cleaner, didn't see any flags or options avail for TCPNameToIP so was just curious is that 'working as intended'?


Don't let that status fool you, I am no advanced memeber!

my ghetto workaround since i hate to use regex :)

$sResult = StringReplace($sResult, "pool-", "")
$sResult = StringReplace($sResult, ".dllstx.fios.verizon.net", "")
$sResult = StringReplace($sResult, "-", ".")

Well, what you do here is, seemingly, 1. get ip address of the string, 2. Get, from that IP-address, the resolve result. That is pretty straightforward? Say you take www.google.com. I get as an IP result 74.125.77.103. If I then IpToName that, I get ew-in-f103.google.com. As I see it, good! What result were you hoping for? If you tell that, maybe there's a better way to suggest...

/facepalm hehe thx i'm an idiot :) too much reading the help files without enough thinking.... of course i'm gonna get the reverse dns when i take the ip and run a _TCPIpToName :) <- my lightbulb was obviously off when i started tinkering tonight thx for the wakeup call!

Haha no problem o:) Guess the problem was that even in that small script you entirely overlooked the $sIp variable ;)

Cheers
