I was wondering how can I get DNS format (or what''s the name) of an address from IP address. For example I have addres in format like www.xxxxxx.com and I want to determine it''s DNS (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx). Anybody knows an alghoritm? I want to bypass my school server because it denieds access to some servers.

Try to use the program ping. Open up a DOS box and type:
ping www.[server].com.

BTW, is gamedev blocked at your school too?

The xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format is called dotted-decimal. A DNS is a domain name server which stores the hostname-IP address pairs.

Well, bosjoh, fortunately gamedev.net isn''t blocked at my school but there are some restrictions accessing some servers before 7.00 pm.

Thank you for replying.
